Yvonne on Broadway
First, she surprised me with the depth of her characterization of Sarah Walker – there was always something more to be found.
Now, Yvonne Strahovski surprises me by the breath of her characters. After playing on TV, video games and movies, she takes on Broadway in a production of Clifford Odets’s Golden Boy along with one of my favorite actors, Tony Shalhoub.
Mr. Shalhoub, of the television series “Monk” and Broadway productions like “Lend Me a Tenor,” will play Mr. Bonaparte, Joe’s father. Ms. Strahovski, who starred in the NBC action-comedy “Chuck” and will appear in the coming season of the Showtime thriller “Dexter,” will play Lorna Moon, a woman for whom Joe develops feelings, despite the fact that she is his manager’s girlfriend.
The revival starts in December. If any denizen of NYC would like to give us a review, we’d love to post it!
Hat tip to Michael, who was kind enough to send us the news.
