Alec Baldwin, now in rehearsals for Broadway's Orphans, will be a guest on "The Late Show with David Letterman" tonight Monday February 25. "Late Show" airs at 11:35 PM on CBS.
Baldwin, Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge will star in Lyle Kessler's play directed by Daniel Sullivan. This production will mark 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.
