From Robert Goulet to Jonathan Groff: Broadway's Leading Men Get Animated
10 Apr 2014
Have you ever been sitting in a movie theatre watching an animated film, or in front of a television watching a cartoon, and thought to yourself that the voice of that singing dog or fish or prince sounded strangely familiar?
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
