Deanna Dunagan, Rondi Reed and Original Cast of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY to Reunite for L.A. Theatre Works Recording, 7/10-13
August: Osage County - Original Steppenwolf and Broadway cast members Deanna Dunagan (Tony Award, Best Leading Actress), Rondi Reed (Tony Award, Best Featured Actress), Kimberly Guerrero, Francis Guinan and Mariann Mayberry reunite to record Tracy Letts' dark, Pulitzer Prize winning comic epic, joined by National Tour cast member Shannon Cochran and directed by Bart DeLorenzo.
The Weston family gathers during a brutal summer heat wave to provide comfort to their bitter, substance-abusing matriarch and find their missing father. It's an unforgettable theatrical journey that offers a painfully funny look at a family struggling in the desolate heart of America.
