STAGE TUBE: Jeff Goldblum Talks SEMINAR on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'
Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent"), appeared on last night's 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' to discuss his starring role in Broadway's SEMINAR. Goldblum assumes the role of Leonard in the play tonight, April 3 for an 8-week run. The actor made his Broadway debut in Two Gentlemen of Verona in 1971. His other Broadway credits include The Moony Shapiro Songbook and The Pillowman. He recently guest starred on GLEE as one of Lea Michele's dads.
Two-time Tony Award nominee, Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Alan Rickman (Private Lives, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, the Harry Potter franchise) played his final performance on Sunday, April 1. The play is written by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Peabody Award winner Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius, The Understudy, Omnium Gatherum, NBC's new hit series "Smash"), directed by Obie Award winner Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens, Kin, The Coward).
SEMINAR also stars Tony Award nominee Lily Rabe (The Merchant of Venice, Steel Magnolias, "American Horror Story"), Obie Award winner Hamish Linklater (The School for Lies, Twelfth Night, "The New Adventures of Old Christine"), film and television star Jerry O'Connell (Jerry Maguire, Stand By Me, "The Defenders," "Crossing Jordan") and actress Hettienne Park (Tony Kushner's The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide... at The Public, "The Good Wife").
In SEMINAR, four aspiring young novelists (Ms. Rabe, Mr. Linklater, Mr. O'Connell and Ms. Park) sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Mr. Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this provocative new comedy.
