TSS ALUM Marshall Simon to appear in ‘My Favorite Husbands’

My Favorite Husbands by Andrew Marvel

Gay weddings for Republicans? Mark, a 40-something New Yorker, bristles at the very idea. So when an invitation arrives to celebrate the union of Marks ex-lover to an up-and-coming rightwing Latino politician, with names like Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, and even Donald Trump dotting the guest list. Mark reacts the way any old school homosexual might: he decides to go in full drag. My Favorite Husbands takes a comedic look at the effects mainstream acceptance is having on the gay community, as well as one man’s choice between simply growing old or finally growing up. Directed by Duane Mazey.

TSS ALUM Peter Sarsgaard as Bobby Kennedy in ‘Jackie’

Peter Sarsgaard goes for the essence — not an impersonation — of Bobby Kennedy in the biopic Jackie

Peter Sarsgaard is pleased to report that he’s been mixing it up.

Last year, Sarsgaard played a hyper drug addict in the crime thriller Black Mass. This fall he defined the murderous bad guy in the remake of The Magnificent Seven western. Yet nothing compares to his Bobby Kennedy performance in the biopic Jackie directed by Pablo Larrain.

The movie is a snapshot of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman) before and after the 1963 assassination of husband and U. S. President John. F. Kennedy. It is Sarsgaard’s Bobby who continues his role of family fixer as the grieving Jackie tries to cope with a devastating aftermath. Ironically, a pivotal time in American history recalled by Jackie was mostly shot on soundstages in a Paris suburb.

Sarsgaard, 35, offers his thoughts.

In Richard Greenberg’s The Babylon Line, now playing at Lincoln Center Theater, four women—some friends, some not—come together for a weekly creative writing class in 1967 Long Island. The play gives the all too rare chance for four actresses to be on stage together in fully formed roles. The actresses of The Babylon Line—Maddie Corman, Randy Graff, Julie Halston, and Elizabeth Reaser—are a formidable group with experiences that range from broad comedies to naturalistic dramas, and all of whom have made substantial contributions to the theatre. We gathered them to discuss their rehearsal process, working together, roles for women, and more. This conversation has been edited and condensed…
