Exciting news from the arts!
James Franco (love him) will make his Broadway debut staring in “Of Mice and Men.” I remember reading this book in grade school… feeling torn from the tragedies unfolded in the story.
The book, written by John Steinbeck centers on two migrant field workers in California during the Great Depression — the big-dreaming George Milton and the mentally challenged Lennie Small.
Producer David Binder said Tuesday that “Milk” star Franco will play George Milton, and Irish actor and “Bridesmaids” star O’Dowd will play Lennie in the revival, which starts performances in March at the Longacre Theatre. Tony Award-winner Anna D. Shapiro will direct. It has not been seen on Broadway in 40 years. -Huffington Post
