Chris Carmack In Entertaining Mr. Sloane
Entertaining Mr. Sloane centers on a handsome stranger with a secret, his libidinous landlady, her gender-bending brother and geriatric father. Kath’s (Jan Maxwell) language may be prim but her intentions are blatant when she picks up Mr. Sloane (Chris Carmack) and takes him in as a lodger. Attractive, mischievous and dangerous, Sloane eventually has Kath, her brother Ed (Alec Baldwin) and their father Kemp (Richard Easton) eating out of his hand as they all compete for his favors. Together they play out a sexual tug of war, sparking a series of murderously funny events in this survival of the fittest power struggle where they will resort to anything to get what they want.
New York, NY :: Playing lunkhead Luke on The O.C. was Chris Carmack‘s big break back in 2003. Delivering the immortal catchphrase, "Welcome to The OC, *****!" was the 25-year-old actor’s claim to fame. Many guest-starring roles later, Carmack is ready to conquer another acting platform — Off-Broadway. Yesterday marked the opening night of Carmack‘s debut at the Roundabout Theatre in a new revival of Joe Orton’s 1964 dark comedy Entertaining Mr. Sloane. Said Alec Baldwin of his onstage quarry, "Obviously, Chris has the physical component in spades. We were confident in him, but we also weren’t quite sure what this guy with limited stage experience could do. And I’m amazed how well he’s done. I have a ball with Chris every night." More pictures in the gallery including appearance’s from yesterday’s opening night!
