BWW TV Exclusive: Meet the 2014 Tony Nominees- CASA's Reed Birney Talks Working His Way Up from Mr. Off-Broadway
It's Tonys season! The 2014 Tony Awards will broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, on CBS, on Sunday, June 8th 8:00 - 11:00 p.m. The ceremony is still weeks away, and in the meantime, BroadwayWorld wants you to get to know this year's nominees. Richard Ridge was thrilled to speak with nearly all of them at the official Tonys Meet & Greet on April 30, 2014, and we will be bringing you special coverage on all of them leading up to the big night.
Today we continue our Tonys coverage with Reed Birney, a nominee for Best Featured Actor in a Play for Casa Valentina, who chats about why the show is 'the perfect acting experiences,' how he worked his way up from being Mr. Off-Broadway and more. Check out what he had to say below!
Inspired by a trove of photographs found at a street fair (which were published by powerHouse in the book, Casa Susanna) and supplemented by Fierstein's own research, Casa Valentina takes audiences to a frontier rarely broached in theater or in life, thanks to a man of the theater who continues to celebrate people in all of their diversity.
