RECKLESS Stars Monk & Perez on the Joan Hamburg Show 10/20

Debra Monk and Rosie Perez, currently starring in the Manhattan Theatre Club/Second Stage co-production of Craig Lucas' RECKLESS, will be interviewed live on WOR's "The Joan Hamburg Show" tomorrow at starting at 10:30 AM.

RECKLESS is directed by Mark Brokaw and also features Olga Merediz, Michael O'Keefe, Mary-Louise Parker, Thomas Sadoski, and Jeremy Shamos.

It's Christmas Eve, Rachel's (Mary-Louise Parker) son has "fired" her, her husband's put out a contract on her life, and so she's out the window – literally. This bittersweet comedy follows Rachel through a bizarre, fantastic, and sometimes nightmarish journey as she travels across the country, finding "home" with a succession of intimate strangers.
