VIDEO: Tavi Gevinson Talks Broadway Debut in 'This Is Our Youth' on TONIGHT SHOW
On last night's TONIGHT STARRING JIMMY FALLON, Jimmy talked to Rookie's editor and founder, Tavi Gevinson, about her Broadway debut in the play This Is Our Youth. Check out the appearance below!
Steppenwolf's production ofKenneth Lonergan's critically acclaimed comedy This is Our Youth is now running at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48 Street).
The comedy, starring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and Tavi Gevinson, with original music by Rostam Batmanglij, and direction by Anna D. Shapiro, will open on Thursday, September 11 following a critically acclaimed sold-out run earlier this summer at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theater.
Set in New York in 1982, This is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren (Michael Cera), a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. Funny, painful and compassionate, This is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment when many young people go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers - far more sophisticated than their parents realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.
