The New Group will present a starry benefit reading of Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Crimes of the Heart Oct. 28 at The New Group @ Theatre Row.
Directed by Scott Elliott, the cast will feature Marin Ireland, Natasha Lyonne, Zosia Mamet, Sebastian Stan, Raviv Ullman and Allison Williams. Show time is 7 PM.
The acclaimed comedy, according to press notes, is “about the intrigues and scandals of the three MaGrath sisters, who reunite on the occasion of Babe MaGrath’s having shot her husband.”
Crimes of the Heart premiered Off-Broadway in 1980 and then ran on Broadway at the The Golden Theatre, garnering the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. In 1986 the play was made into a film directed by Bruce Beresford.
The reading will cast Ireland as Lenny, Lyonne as Chick, Mamet as Babe, Stan as Doc, Ullman as Barnette and Williams as Meg.

It seems amidst everything I completely overlooked the site’s one-year anniversary which fell on September 4th! So, in light of my discovery, I would like to thank everyone who has visited and supported the site since it opened and continue to do so. I realize that I haven’t been the best webmiss, as many things are still missing from the gallery, but rest assured, I am aware and intend on remedying this as soon as my schedule allows. In the meantime, I will be sure to continue keeping you all up to date on the latest news and photos. Here’s to another year! 🙂
I would like to wish a spectacularly memorable birthday to the man himself as he celebrates the big 3-0 today! Happy Birthday, Seb!
I’ve added 13 photos of Sebastian with his Captain America: Winter Soldier co-stars Chris Evan and Anthony Mackie at Disney’s D23 Expo which took place yesterday, August 10th.

Read Sebastian’s interview in its entirety over at io9.com
io9: So Bucky is like Captain America. They’re both from another time, they’re both lost in this new world. How does Bucky deal with that in this new movie?
Sebastian Stan: He doesn’t deal with it. [Laughs]. He just doesn’t deal with it.
I’m curious about the evolution of the hair.
Oh yes! Please ask me, because I’m sure people have opinions.
We’ve been drawing pictures of long hair on you for quite some time on io9. We didn’t know how it would look! How did you guys come to this conclusion of this hairstyle? Was it totally out of your hands?
You know what the funny thing is, we had the artist – Ed Brubaker — on set. I remember I was talking to him and I asked “why the long hair?” And he said, “the thing is we have long hair when you’re drawing comic books, [because it] things look more epic.” This was so funny to me because he was basically also explaining why superheroes have capes. The reason they have capes is because you can tell in a comic book that they’re flying. Or that there’s wind. So I said, “alright, so you’re telling me he has long hair because you wanted it for stylistic purposes.” It makes sense!
In the storyline basically Bucky sort of snapped a little bit. He went on a mission and he went missing for about a month, or so, in New York and they [the Russians] couldn’t find him. So he kind of walked around like a homeless person for a while. He was trying to figure out what he was doing and where he was. And during that process there was no one there giving him a haircut.
But in terms of the movie, I don’t care. You can’t approach something with “oh my god, how am I going to look with long hair,” you just do. I’m playing this part, this guy’s got long hair, I gotta have long hair. What are you gonna do. ?
Well I like it. I think it works. So what is modern-day Bucky (or Winter Soldier’s) fighting-style? He was trained to fight in World War II and then picked up by the Russians. Is there a combination of Russian kickboxing or something?
It’s actually kind of scrappy. The idea was this is the kind of guy who can kill you with a straw. He’s precise, he’s very specific with what he does. But the idea is that it’s messy. He’ll use knives… knives were always a big part of the character. There is a lot of knife work in the movie for sure. And overall brutality. He’ll kill you with whatever is closest.
