Jones and O'Byrne Chat with Roma Torre, June 27

Tony-winners Cherry Jones and Brian F. O'Byrne will discuss their roles in Doubt with NY1's Roma Torre at Makor on June 27th at 7:30 PM. 

Doubt, John Patrick Shanley's drama about moral truth concerning a nun's suspicions about a priest, received the 2005 Tony for Best Play.  Jones walked away the Best Actress award for her performance as Sister Aloysius; she had been nominated before for A Moon for the Misbegotten in 2000 and Our Country's Good in 1991.  Her other Broadway credits include Imaginary Friends, Major Barbara, The Night of the Iguana, The Heiress, Angels in America, Macbeth and Stepping Out.  A respected film actress, she has appeared in The Village, Signs, The Perfect Storm, Erin Brockovich and The Cradle Will Rock, among others.

O'Byrne was Tony-nominated for his performance as Father Flynn in Doubt, and won last year for Frozen.  He received previous nods, too, for The Lonesome West and The Beauty Queen of Leenane, and also appeared on Broadway in The Sisters Rosenweig.  On film, O'Bryne has acted in Million Dollar Baby (again as a priest), Intermission, Bandits and An Everlasting Piece.

Doubt also received Tonys for Doug Hughes as Best Director and Best Featured Actress Adriane Lenox.  Produced by Carol Shorenstein Hays, The Manhattan Theatre Club, Roger Berlind and Scott Rudin and also featuring Heather Goldenhersh, Doubt currently plays at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
