Photo Flash: Kathleen Turner Visits Len Cariou at BROADWAY AND THE BARD

Amas Musical Theatre in association with Alan Siegel Entertainment presents Tony Award-winning actor Len Cariou (Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Applause, Teddy & Alice) in the World Premiere of BROADWAY AND THE BARD, an evening of Shakespeare & song, conceived by Mr. Cariou, Barry Kleinbort and Mark Janas. Kathleen Turner and her daughter, singer Rachel Weiss, just stopped by the production and you can check out backstage photos below!

Directed by Mr. Kleinbort with musical direction by Mr. Janas, the show began a six-week run on Thursday, January 28th at the Lion Theatre (at Theatre Row) (410 West 42nd Street - between 8th & 9th Avenues). Opening Night is scheduled for Thursday, February 4th at 8:00 p.m. Performances will continue through March 6, 2016.

In BROADWAY AND THE BARD, universally acclaimed stage and screen veteran Len Cariou gives full voice to an idea that he has harbored since his first prophetic Broadway season of Henry V and Applause; Combining his two great loves -Shakespeare and American Musical Comedy - into one rich and diverse tapestry; outfitting trenchant classical soliloquies and sonnets with inventive musical pairings from beloved writers of the Great White Way - an eighty-minute melding of superb soliloquy and memorable song by a one-of-a-kind master actor of exquisite vintage in what the Bard might refer to as "a most rare vision."
