    The House of Fan - Robert Sean Leonard - Born Yesterday - NPR Interview

    Transcript:

    JEFF LUNDEN: There are three names above the marquee at the Cort Theatre, where a revival of Garson Kanins 1946 comedy, "Born Yesterday," is playing. Two of them are familiar TV names Jim Belushi, who plays a corrupt businessman, and Robert Sean Leonard, who plays a virtuous reporter.

    But audiences might be forgiven if theyve never heard of the third name Nina Arianda, who plays the not-so-dumb blonde Billie Dawn the pivotal role made famous on Broadway and in film by Judy Holliday. It was certainly a question Robert Sean Leonard had, when his agent called, offering him the part.

    Mr. ROBERT SEAN LEONARD (Actor): I said to my agent, I love this play, I love this role, but Im going to have to go on your word here. Is this the girl? Do they have the girl? And he said, This is her. This is who weve been waiting for.

    (Soundbite of laughter)

    Mr. LEONARD: And, boy, was he right.

    (Soundbite of play, "Born Yesterday")

    Mr. LEONARD: (as Paul Verrall) I dont suppose you got a chance to read my piece.

    Ms. NINA ARIANDA (Actor): (as Billy Dawn) What are you talking? Of course, I did - twice.

    Mr. LEONARD: (as Paul Verrall) What did you think?

    Ms. ARIANDA: (as Billy Dawn) Well, I think its the best thing I ever read.

    (Soundbite of laughter)

    Ms. ARIANDA: (as Billy Dawn) I didnt understand one word.

    (Soundbite of laughter)

    LUNDEN: Nina Arianda, at age 26, is making her Broadway debut in "Born Yesterday." She received rave reviews for her performance, but admits she was nervous taking on a role so identified with another actress.

    Ms. ARIANDA: I thought, okay, why is it iconic? Is it because of Judy Holliday? I think its become that, but I think it stems from the text. And the text is timeless and the text is fantastic, and it makes a performance iconic. So if I thought of it that way, it took a little pressure off myself and allowed me to kind of do exactly what I could do, which was just do it my way.

    (Soundbite of play, "Born Yesterday")

    Ms. ARIANDA: (as Billy Dawn) Let me ask you, are you one of these talkers or would you be interested in a little action?

    (Soundbite of laughter)

    Mr. LEONARD: (as Paul Verrall) Huh?

    Ms. ARIANDA: (as Billy Dawn) I've got a yen for you right off.

    Mr. LEONARD: (as Paul Verrall) Hmm. Do you get many?

    Ms. ARIANDA: (as Billy Dawn) Now and then.

    Mr. LEONARD: (as Paul Verrall) What do you do about them?

    Ms. ARIANDA: (as Billy Dawn) Stick around, you'll find out.

    LUNDEN: Ariandas career has been on a fast track, since she got her graduate degree from NYU just two years ago. Last season, she made a splash in an off-Broadway show, "Venus in Fur," and has since worked on several movies, including Woody Allens latest, "Midnight in Paris."

    Arianda got the stage bug as a child in Paterson, New Jersey. By the time she was 16, she was studying acting in a summer program at the Royal Academy in London. She well remembers going to the open-air Globe Theatre to see a production of Shakespeares "Cymbeline," directed and starring Tony-nominated actor Mark Rylance. She stood in front of the stage and says, by the end of the play, she was sobbing.

    Ms. ARIANDA: And then he blew me a kiss, offstage, and that was just - that even worsened my sobs. But that was one of those theater moments that kind of really makes you want it more. You know, when you see a performance like that, it makes you want it even more. It gets you hungrier, in a way.

    Playbill: The Man from "House" Meets One of "The Defenders" in Born Yesterday
    Jim Belushi of TV's "The Defenders" and Robert Sean Leonard of "House" are in from the West Coast for Broadway's Born Yesterday.

    Jim Belushi and Robert Sean Leonard elected to spend their TV hiatuses this year escorting Nina Arianda through her Tony-nominated Broadway debut in Born Yesterday as Billie Dawn, the definitive dumb-blonde who introduced Judy Holliday to stardom — and the world —65 years ago.

    One landing directly above Belushi's star dressing room is Leonard's temporary digs. At 43, he's frightfully unfussy about where he's holed up off-stage. Wherever, it's still an easy sprint for him into the play. "I don't care where my dressing room is. All I do is put my clothes on and go on stage, and then I go home. I'm not living here."

    In point of fact, he doesn't even live on the East Coast — although he expects he and his wife and daughter will move back when (or if) "House" comes tumbling down in the ratings. Distributed to 66 countries, it was the most-watched television program in the world in 2008, so don't start planning any homecoming parties anytime soon.



    Born Yesterday is literally the first chance he has had to get to New York theatre since he signed up seven years ago to befriend Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), the loopy, misanthropic medical genius who heads the diagnostic department at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital in New Jersey.

    Not an easy gig, television: "When you're working on a sitcom — that's the best job — the hours are minimal, and you get a long hiatus. You just have to deliver 22 minutes of stuff on tape, whereas with an hour show you need 48 minutes of edited film. It's almost like making a small movie every ten days, so it sucks. The money is great, but boy! it's the worst schedule! You wake up at four in the morning and drive to work in the dark, and the sun comes up as you're putting your makeup on, and the sun cresses, and the sun goes down, and it's dark, and you're still there, and you get home at ten at night. Very long days. We are well compensated, but it 's tough."

    Kleiner Hinweis noch zu den Bildern von @MKSoftball18: Das war nach der Aufführung letzten Samstag.

    Wenn ihr die Bilder irgendwo anders veröffentlicht bitte unbedingt den Link dazu, das ist ausdrücklicher Wunsch von von ihr.


    BORN YESTERDAY to Play Final Performance on Broadway June 26


    Born Yesterday is set to close on Broadway following the matinee on Sunday, June 26; it will have played 28 previews and 73 performances. The production, which stars Jim Belushi, Robert Sean Leonard, and Nina Arianda, opened Sunday, April 24, at Broadway's Cort Theatre, 138 West 48 Street. Doug Hughes directed the classic Garson Kanin comedy.

    For her performance as Billie Dawn, Nina Arianda won the Outer Critics Circle Award for best actress in a play and received nominations for Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Born Yesterday also received nominations for best revival of a play from the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle. And the production's costume designer, Catherine Zuber, received a Tony nomination for best costume design for a play. Born Yesterday also marked the return to Broadway of Jim. Belushi and Leonard after long hiatuses.

    The cast of Born Yesterday also includes Frank Wood, Terry Beaver, Patricia Hodges, Michael McGrath, Fred Arsenault, Bill Christ, Jennifer Regan, Liv Rooth, Danny Rutigliano, Andrew Weems, and Chris Barnes.

    The scenic design for Born Yesterday is by John Lee Beatty; costume design is by Catherine Zuber; lighting design is by Peter Kaczorowski; original music/sound design is by David Van Tieghem; hair/wig design is by Tom Watson; casting is by Jay Binder; fight direction is by J. David Brimmer; production stage manager is Tripp Phillips.

    Emmy Award nominee Jim Belushi ("According to Jim," "The Defenders"), Tony Award winner Robert Sean Leonard (Best Featured Actor for The Invention of Love), and Outer Critics' Circle nominee Nina Arianda ("A breakout performance-one of the highlights of the year" Charles Isherwood, The New York Times for Venus in Fur) head the cast in Born Yesterday, Garson Kanin's award-winning comedy. Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt) directs this timeless and timely story of a not-so-honest businessman and a not-so-ditzy blonde out to "capitalize" on everything Washington has to offer.

    Born Yesterday had its New York premiere on February 4, 1946 at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre, starring Paul Douglas, Judy Holliday, and Gary Merrill, and produced by Max Gordon. It became an instant hit, ran for 1,642 performances (moving to the Henry Miller's Theatre), and remains the seventh longest running play in Broadway history. The play was adapted to the screen in 1950 with Judy Holliday winning an Academy Award for repeating her stage triumph, this time alongside Broderick Crawford and William Holden with George Cukor directing. Born Yesterday was revived on Broadway in 1989, starring Ed Asner and Madeline Kahn, and ran for five months, following a national tour.

    Born Yesterday is produced by Philip Morgaman, Anne Caruso, Vincent Caruso, Frankie J. Grande, James P. MacGilvray, Brian Kapetanis, and Robert S. Basso in association with Peter J. Puleo. Previews began Thursday, March 31. Born Yesterday plays Tuesday at 7pm; Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm; Wednesday and Saturday at 2pm; Sunday at 3pm, at the Cort Theatre, 138 West 48 Street.

    The Top 10 Broadway Dads

    9. Robert Sean Leonard

    Robert's daughter with wife Gabriella Salick, Eleanor, was born in 2009. If he's anywhere near as gentle and patient with her as he is teaching Billie Dawn in Born Yesterday, we know she'll grow up as smart as her father!
