Michael Shannon has been a success on stage, screen and television and he has plenty of hardware to prove it.  The Tony and Oscar-nominated actor is bringing his talents to McCarter Theatre in Princeton for the latest performance of Simpatico. 

Buried secrets, blackmail, and false identities race onto the stage in Simpatico, a tragicomedy about the slippery netherworld of thoroughbred racing from the late Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist Sam Shepard.

Michael Shannon is an actor known for the intensity of his performances, whether in films like 99 Homes, prestige cable series like Boardwalk Empire or Broadway plays like Long Day’s Journey Into Night. He’s also an intense jazz fan, as he discussed with WBGO’s Gary Walker on Morning Jazz.
