Lonny Price Signs at Paradigm Talent Agency
In addition to creating the role of Charley Kringas in the original Broadway cast of "Merrily We Roll Along," Mr. Price directed Glenn Close in "Sunset Boulevard," Audra McDonald in "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill" and "110 in the Shade," Danny Glover in "'Master Harold' ... and the Boys," among other Broadway and West End credits. He also directed the stage and film version of "Sondheim: The Birthday Concert!," for which he won an Emmy. His collaborations with the New York Philharmonic include the Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts of "Camelot," "Candide," and "Sweeney Todd" (which earned him another Emmy, as did his production of "Sondheim's Passion").
Price's documentary "Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened" draws back the curtain on the creation of "Merrily We Roll Along" and tells the stories of the hopeful young actors whose lives were transformed by it. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival and was named one of New York Times' Top 10 Films of 2016.
