Bryce Pinkham Talks Elisabeth Moss, The Heidi Chronicles & More

first_img View Comments “I do get to sing a little bit in the show, actually,” Pinkham told of the Tony and Pulitzer-winning Wendy Wasserstein play. “There’s a tiny bit of singing, but I’m very excited to do a drama and flex those muscles. It’s a different type of challenge.” Show Closed This production ended its run on May 3, 2015 In addition to Pinkham, Moss and Biggs, The Heidi Chronicles, directed by Pam MacKinnon, will feature Tracee Chimo. Set to open in early March 2015, additional casting and theater will be announced later. So, will Pinkham be plotting dastardly deeds in Gentleman’s Guide again following The Heidi Chronicles? “My hope is that my time with [the play] will be a hiatus, and that I’ll be able to return…whether that means the Walter Kerr or elsewhere. I’d be surprised if there was not more Monty Navarro in my future.” The Heidi Chronicles Rehearsals won’t begin until January, but Pinkham is already psyched to team up with his new co-stars. “They’re some of my favorite actors. Elisabeth came to see Gentleman’s Guide and couldn’t have been sweeter. I’m a big OITNB fan so I’ve been watching [Biggs’] show for two seasons now.”center_img Bryce Pinkham Star Files Bryce Pinkham may be one-upping Viola Davis by getting away with eight murders in the Tony-winning tuner A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, but soon he’ll light up the Great White Way in a play. The Tony nominee will join Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss and Orange is the New Black’s Jason Biggs in the upcoming Broadway revival of The Heidi Chronicles, but that doesn’t mean he’s giving up singing entirely. Related Shows The Yale School of Drama grad will play Peter Patone, Heidi’s gay best friend, his first non-musical role on Broadway and he couldn’t be more thrilled to be involved. “I think this is a really important time to revisit this play, with all that’s going on in our country right now: women’s rights and even things that are coming up in the last few months like domestic violence in the NFL—our sort of masculine-driven culture.”last_img read more
