Michael Shannon is currently making his Broadway debut in the hit drama GRACE. The talented actor stopped by 'Good Day NY' this morning to chat about the show. When asked if working with legendary actor Ed Asner was comparable to playing tennis with Andre Agassi, the actor joked, "With him, it's more like Billy Jean King," but quickly added, "No, we love Ed." Check out his appearance below!
Craig Wright's Grace, starring Paul Rudd and Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, with Kate Arrington and seven-time Emmy Award-winner Ed Asner, opened on October 4, 2012 at Broadway's Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street). In the video below, Shannon chats with VH1's 'Big Morning Buzz' about starring in the show. Check it out below!
This gripping dark comedy asks: are we in control of our lives or is there something else at work? With scenes that careen from the serene to the suspenseful, Grace follows a wide-eyed young couple (Rudd & Arrington) as they start a new life in sunny, promise-filled Florida, with big plans to open a chain of Gospel themed motels. An agitated neighbor (Shannon) and a caustic exterminator (Asner) complete the eclectic foursome as destinies collide in this intensely entertaining and suspenseful journey to The Edgeof your seat.
The design team of Grace includes Beowulf Boritt (Scenic Design), David Weiner (Lighting Design), Tif Bullard (Costume Design) and recent Tony Award-winner Darron L West (Sound Design).
