Aubrey Plaza to Star in “Danny And The Deep Blue Sea” on Off-Broadway

July 29, 2023   Comments Off on Aubrey Plaza to Star in “Danny And The Deep Blue Sea” on Off-Broadway   News

Aubrey Plaza, making her stage debut, and Christopher Abbott will star in an Off Broadway revival of John Patrick Shanley’s 1984 classic Danny and the Deep Blue Sea this fall, with a producing team that includes Sam Rockwell.

The revival will begin previews Monday, October 20, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, with an opening night set for Monday, November 13. The 10-week limited engagement will be directed by Jeff Ward, in his stage directorial debut.

Rockwell said in a statement, “My life and career have been profoundly impacted by Off-Broadway theater – like John Malkovich and Gary Sinise in True West at the Cherry Lane; Stanley Tucci in Scapin at Classic Stage Company; Phil Hoffman and Justin Theroux in Shopping and F*cking at New York Theatre Workshop; and Blasted with Reed Birney and Marin Ireland at Soho Rep, to name a few. I really do believe it’s the beating heart of this city. I couldn’t be prouder to be downtown at the Lucille Lortel with this vital play.”

Rockwell will be producing via his and Mark Berger’s Play Hooky Productions, along with Seaview, Sue Wagner, and John Johnson, by special arrangement with the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

The original production of Danny and the Deep Blue Sea premiered Off Broadway at Circle in the Square Theatre Downtown in 1984 starring June Stein and John Turturro (who won an Obie Award for his performance).

The official synopsis: Have you ever been caught in an earthquake? A chance meeting. A dive bar. Some encounters are so dangerous and so beautiful, they redefine the meaning of love. Follow two desperate people in the Bronx, Danny and Roberta, as they walk the line between destruction and transcendence.

Danny and the Deep Blue Sea will feature scenic design by Scott Pask, lighting design by John Torres, costume design by Arianne Phillips, sound design by Kate Marvin, and movement by Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber.

Aubrey is best known for her breakthrough role on TV’s Parks and Recreation and, more recently, The White Lotus. Abbott rose to fame on HBO’s Girls and more recently appeared in The Crowded Room and Catch-22, among others. His stage credits include a 2011 Broadway production of The House of Blue Leaves.

‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Aubrey Plaza

June 25, 2023   Comments Off on ‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Aubrey Plaza   Interviews

Aubrey Plaza, the guest on this episode of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, is a top young actress and producer who is enjoying the biggest year of her career — indeed, in late 2022, she starred in and produced John Patton Ford’s acclaimed indie film Emily the Criminal and gave a standout supporting turn on the second season of Mike White’s popular HBO drama series The White Lotus; and in early 2023, she hosted Saturday Night Live, garnering widespread praise.

Since bursting onto the scene about 15 years ago in comedies on screens big and small — most notably on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, on which she played the key supporting part of April Ludgate, an apathetic intern, for seven seasons spanning 2009 through 2015 — Plaza has, in the words of the New York Times, “continually reinvented herself,” and, per the Los Angeles Times, “emerged as a performer of surprising depth and range, and a creative force to be reckoned with behind the camera too.” This year, Amy Poehler described her as “one of the most interesting actors working today,” and TIME magazine selected as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Over the course of this episode, the 38-year-old reflects on how she was changed by a freak stroke that she suffered at the age of 21; the insane first week that she ever spent in Los Angeles, during which she landed her parts in Funny People, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Parks and Rec; the sense of resentment that she felt, for a time, about being regarded by some as a good fit only for “deadpan” characters like April; why, having twice hosted the Spirit Awards, she would like to host the Oscars; two recently completed but not yet released projects, Disney+ WandaVision spinoff Agatha: Coven of Chaos and Francis Ford Coppola’s self-financed final film Megalopolis; plus more.

How to Throw a Party Like Aubrey Plaza

June 14, 2023   Comments Off on How to Throw a Party Like Aubrey Plaza   Interviews

Aubrey Plaza doesn’t care if you keep your shoes on inside, nor is there any kind of required dress code for entry. The only real rule you have to follow when attending a party at the actor’s Spanish-style home in Los Feliz, California, is to never show up on time. And god forbid you’re early. “When I hear the doorbell ring exactly on the dot it’s like… Oh my god,” she says, a look of horror flashing across her face. “What are you doing here?”

Dan Stevens, her co-star in the FX series Legion, is always prompt, Plaza says, with an eye roll. It’s a quality that the host has begrudgingly come to deal with for the many game nights that turn into late nights that she and her husband, the director Jeff Baena, throw throughout the week. Often spontaneous, these get-togethers are typically announced with a meme-y graphic invite designed by Baena, and end up wildly varying in guest count—from intimately-sized Balderdash sessions to dance parties soundtracked by yacht rock and Swedish rap music. (The Hollywood couple typically keeps a “Bowie household,” admits Plaza).

No matter the playlist, however, the one thing that makes all their romps successful is their bar. “We usually hold our parties on the later side,” says Plaza, “People know to eat before they come, because we don’t go crazy with the food—we’re all about the cocktails.” The actor calls her drink of choice a MargaRight. It’s the classic version of the sour cocktail—composed of tequila, fresh lime juice, and Cointreau, whom she recently partnered with—which is then shaken and chilled before being served. When Plaza plays bartender at these functions (which she often does) she makes her margs per serving rather than batch punches. “The last one I made got too witchy for people,” she says of a Halloween affair that took a sideways turn.

Another gathering that got away from The White Lotus star was one she held a few years ago for the Swedish film Border. “I loved the movie so much, even though I had nothing to do with it,” recalls Plaza, who asked the indie production’s distribution company, Neon, if she could host a screening in Los Angeles to support it. Nearly a hundred of the star’s close friends and family turned up to the private theater that she rented out to watch the anticipated film. The only problem? The actual copy of the movie was nowhere to be found. “It turned out to be a disaster,” says Plaza, still reeling from the chaos. Her solution was to distract the crowd with plenty of drinks and an impromptu performance by Fred Armisen and Nick Kroll, who happened to be attending.

Hopefully, Plaza will have better luck when she celebrates Swedish cinema again later this month. Every year, she and her husband host a double-Cancer rager at their home (their birthdays are two days apart)—but this June, they’re attending the Bergman Week film festival on the Baltic island of Fårö. As far as her next hosting endeavor, though, the actress already has a plan in motion. “We got married a couple of years ago during the pandemic, but we never had a proper celebration,” says Plaza, whose middle sister, Natalie, just also tied the knot. “We’ve been scheming to throw a mega party that celebrates both of our weddings.”

This event, when it finally happens, will take place in the sisters’ native Delaware—but will look nothing like the parties they celebrated growing up. “Our dream is to have it on a creepy, old estate like DuPont [now known as the NYIT de Seversky Mansion] with Civil War reenactors and oddities in every room,” says Plaza. “It would be almost like Great Gatsby meets Clue, and there would be drag queens. We love drag queens. There would be drag queens, and MargaRights.” Cheers to that.
