See the first photo of Keri Russell and Adam Driver in Broadway’s Burn This

“You can imagine them in bed together.”

That’s what Tony-Award-winning director Michael Mayer has to say about the crackling first publicity image of Keri Russell and Adam Driver for their upcoming Broadway play, Burn This. “You feel this erotic and emotional connection very strongly,” he adds.

The Star Wars: Episode IX costars are returning to the stage for the first ever revival of Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama, which begins previews on March 15 with opening night set for April 16 at New York’s Hudson Theatre. Brandon Uranowitz (Falsettos) and David Furr (Noises Off) round out the cast.

Russell and Driver lead the action as Anna, a professional dancer and choreographer, and Pale, a coke-addicted hyper-active restaurant manager, who are brought together when Robbie, Anna’s dance partner and Pale’s brother, dies in a mysterious boating accident. The play follows the explosive chemistry between these two strangers as Wilson probes love, lust, and the power of raw attraction in his smoldering, award-winning play. The original production of Burn This starred John Malkovich and Joan Allen in Driver and Russell’s roles in a buzzy production that made the leap from its 1987 Off Broadway iteration to the Great White Way.

The Babysitter’s Seduction Blu-Ray screencaptures

Growing up on the poorer side of town, 18-year old Michelle Winston (Keri Russell) not only appreciated the opportunity to make some money babysitting for the wealthy, upwardly mobile Bertrands, but takes pleasure in being surrounded by all the material trappings of their home. Bill (Stephen Collins) and Sallie Bertrand were a young, successful couple who seemed to live a happy, typical existence. But that storybook tale comes to a tragic end when Sallie is found dead in her home, the victim of an apparent suicide. Feeling an obligation to-and sympathy for-Bill and the two children, Michelle becomes more and more a fixture in the Bertrand home. But as she begins to spend virtually all of her free time there, and is seen driving Sallie’s new car and wearing her old jewelry, she quickly alienates her mother and all her school friends with her new-found responsibilities. This sudden transformation is also looked upon suspiciously by the police. When the circumstances surrounding Sallie’s death are re-examined, Michelle soon finds herself the prime suspect in her death. Michelle’s friends, jealous of her all-consuming relationship with the Bertrands, suspect there’s something unpleasant happening between her and the supposedly grieving widower. Their suspicions prove to be fairly accurate as Bill does make advances towards the impressionable schoolgirl. But his intentions are not based on love, but to set up his attractive baby-sitter for the murder of his wife.

‘Burn This,’ Starring Adam Driver and Keri Russell, Locks in Broadway Plans

Tony nominees David Furr and Brandon Uranowitz will complete the cast of the Lanford Wilson drama, which opens April 16 at the Hudson Theatre.
After months of circling Broadway for the right venue and dates, the upcoming revival of Lanford Wilson’s combustible drama Burn This has secured a home at the Hudson Theatre, where it was originally planned for early 2017.

The four-character play will star previously announced leads Adam Driver and Keri Russell, with Tony nominees David Furr and Brandon Uranowitz completing the cast.

Michael Mayer will direct the new staging, which swoops in on a prime vacancy created at the Hudson by the Jan. 6 closing of another Mayer production, the Go-Go’s musical Head Over Heels.

First seen in 1987 in a celebrated production that paired John Malkovich and Joan Allen, Burn This is a smoldering story of love and raw attraction set in gritty 1980s New York. It centers on two strangers brought together by an untimely death who forge an explosive connection.

David Binder, who last teamed with director Mayer on the hit 2014 revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is lead producer on the Wilson play, which has assembled a Tony-winning design team of Derek McLane (sets), Clint Ramos (costumes) and Natasha Katz (lighting).

Previews start March 15 at the Hudson, with an official opening set for April 16. General ticket sales begin Dec. 2.

The play marks Driver’s return to Broadway for the first time since 2011, while Russell will make her Broadway debut, following six seasons on the critically adored FX series The Americans.

Furr was last on Broadway in a 2016 revival of Noises Off, earning a Tony nomination for his role. Uranowitz received Tony nominations in 2015 for An American in Paris and in 2017 for Falsettos. He is currently appearing in the musical The Band’s Visit.

The Broadway revival of Burn This was originally announced to reopen the newly restored Hudson in early 2017, with Jake Gyllenhaal slated to play the role of coke-snorting restaurant manager Pale. Those plans fell apart due to Gyllenhaal’s scheduling conflicts, and the play got back on track late last year with Driver in the role.

Why The Americans’ Keri Russell deserves a Golden Globe

We live through history unaware of history, carried ever forward through transformative moments we will only recognize in hindsight. Yet there are rare occasions, in rare lives, when human beings get the chance to knowingly alter the course of human events. Consider, say, the beginning of the sixth season of The Americans, when the undercover KGB agent known as Elizabeth Jennings embarks on a rendezvous with global destiny. She’s given a toppest-of-top-secret mission, a late-stage Cold War bit of subterfuge that reaches toward the highest levels of Soviet-American relations. It’s a complicated mission, and the final season of FX’s spy drama kept sharpening its focus on Elizabeth, played with subtlety and rage and existential weariness and so much more by Keri Russell.

And now history is calling to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the voting body behind the Golden Globe awards. There is a profound wrong that must be righted, you see, a collective sin of our species that requires penance. Even though Russell spent six seasons of The Americans soul crunching Elizabeth’s morally ambiguous journey — even as she juggled wigs between espionage characters, sometimes resulting in two or three great separate performances per episode — she’s never won a major award for her work on the show.

Oh, she was recognized, sure. She won this year’s Television Critics Association award for Individual Achievement in a Drama, and critics always know best. And the Emmys nominated her thrice. In fact, this year the Emmys loaded up a few cannons full of trophies and fired a fusillade at everyone on The Americans except for anyone named “Keri Russell.” Showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg took the stage for a writing win. Russell’s costar/real-life partner Matthew Rhys landed Best Actor in a Drama. Continue reading Why The Americans’ Keri Russell deserves a Golden Globe
