Broadway's ORPHANS Cast Visits THE CHARLIE ROSE SHOW
It's been a busy week for Broadway's Orphans, Lyle Kessler's play starring Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster, and Tom Sturridge. The show opened on Broadway last night, and a starry audience including Dakota Fanning, Tina Fey, Jane Krakowski, Winona Ryder, Sienna Miller, Anna Chlumsky, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Richard Schiff, Anna Wintour, Debbie Harry, Melissa Errico and Patrick McEnroe, Bridget Moynahan and Michael Shannon. Plus, Charlie Rose interviewed the cast on his PBS show on Wednesday evening. Watch it HERE!
This production of Orphans, directed by Daniel Sullivan, marks the play's first Broadway staging. In the play, two orphaned brothers are living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. Treat, the eldest, (Foster), supports his damaged younger sibling Phillip (Sturridge) by petty thievery, and makes the house a virtual prison for the seemingly simple-minded Phillip. One night he kidnaps a rich older man, Harold (Baldwin), who turns out to have his own motives and becomes the father figure the boys have always yearned for.
