Lincoln Center Theater’s Platform Series, a forum for public discussion between Lincoln Center Theater artists and interested theatregoers, will kick off its 16th season Oct. 23.
The 5:30 PM event will feature Bruce Norris and Anna D. Shapiro, the playwright and director, respectively, of the new play Domesticated.
The Platform Series takes place in the lobby of the Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65th Street). Admission is free and open to all; however, seating in the lobby is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning a half-hour before the talk. (Speakers and schedules are subject to change; call (212) 362-7600 to confirm on the day of the event.)
Domesticated, according to press notes, is "about politics and gender involving a husband and wife (Jeff Goldblum and Laurie Metcalf) whose marriage is upended when they become embroiled in a scandal."
LCT’s subsequent platform is scheduled for Dec. 19 at 6 PM with actors Goldblum and Metcalf, who head the cast of Domesticated.
Lincoln Center Theater’s Platform series was introduced in the summer of 1998. Transcripts of the previous talks are available on-line at www.lct.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
