Photo Flash: ORPHANS' Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge at The New York Times' TIMES TALK
Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge, now starring on Broadway in Lyle Kessler's Orphans, were the featured guests at today's New York Times "Times Talk." The talk was streamed live from www.nytimes.com/artsbeat and www.Livestream.com/nytimes. The New York Times' Pat Healy moderated. Scroll below for photos from the discussion!
ORPHANS is now in previews and opens on Thursday, April 18 at the Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street). The production, directed by Daniel Sullivan, marks the first Broadway staging of Orphans.
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.
Tom Sturridge is appearing with the support of Actors' Equity Association. The Producers gratefully acknowledge Actors' Equity Association for its assistance of this production.
