Watch ORPHANS' Alec Balwin, Tom Sturridge and Ben Foster at TIMES TALK
Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge, who are now appearing on Broadway in Lyle Kessler's Orphans, spoke with The New York Times moderator Patrick Healy last night at the Times Center for a "TimesTalk." Click HERE to watch the full interview!
This production of ORHPANS, directed by Daniel Sullivan, will mark the first Broadway staging of Orphans. ORPHANS is now in previews and will open on Thursday, April 18 at the Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street).
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.
