Brian Dennehy & Mia Farrow Discuss Bringing Love Letters to B’way

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 14, 2014 Love Letters Tony winner Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow return to the Great White Way beginning September 13 in A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. The pair stopped by The Today Show to discuss launching this revival, which will feature a rotating cast of stars in limited engagements. “You cannot stage a play more simply than this,” Dennehy says. “All you do is speak it. The writer wants you to just hear the words…and you will provide the emotions for yourself.” Farrow proved that their affection for each other is not just an act: “There’s a compelling reason to do a play if Brian’s in it, but also, this is an exquisite play.” And while we’ll have to wait just a day more to see the two on stage, Dennehy revealed, “We have no twerks in this play.” Damn. Catch the twerk-less Dennehy and Farrow in Love Letters at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, opening officially on September 18! View Comments Related Showslast_img read more

Lowry critical of ‘joke’ start

first_imgIreland’s Shane Lowry felt it was “a joke” that play started in a torrential downpour on the second day of the US PGA Championship at Valhalla. “I think to be honest, when we were playing the first hole, it was a joke,” said Lowry, who bogeyed the first two holes and went on to add a 74 to his opening 68. “You couldn’t see the flight of the ball after 150 yards. “I called the referee over and said it to him but he said ‘No, play on’. Then we were standing at the back of the first green for an hour, standing in the rain, nowhere to sit down, nothing to do. “From there on it was just a grind for me all day. I’m obviously quite disappointed with the score I shot but it could have been a lot worse. I made a few par saves out there and my head was a bit off all day. The start that we had unsettled me a lot.” The heavy rain also meant it was quite dark when play began and Lowry added: “It was their call and we had to deal with it. I feel like we should have been taken in. What was wrong with taking us in and starting an hour later? “It was borderline playable. There was an element about it that if we were being picky, we could have said it was too dark. “It set the tone for my whole day which was disappointing because, the golf I’m playing at the minute, I really felt I could go out there, shoot a decent score and put myself in a good position in to the weekend.” Lowry was in the first group out at 7:30am local time but was unable to complete the opening hole before play was suspended. And to make matters worse, the 27-year-old and playing partners Ryan Palmer and Bob Sowards were kept out on the course as officials believed the rain would clear quickly. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
