The 7th annual Broadway Beauty pageant; a Burt Lancaster film series at Film Society of Lincoln Center; the “Giant” cast recording; “American Psycho” at Hollywood Forever Cemetery; and a SAG Foundation CAP workshop are some of the things we’re looking forward to this week.
At its best, “Giant,” Sybille Pearson and Michael John LaChiusa’s adaptation of Edna Ferber’s sweeping 1952 novel of Texas, at the Public Theater, is compelling musical theater.
P.J. Griffith is preparing to master the Public Theater's stage in the new musical, based on the book by Edna Ferber about a wealthy Texas landowner. Griffith originated the role at the Dallas Theater Center earlier this year.
