Rebecca Luker will offer an all-Jerome Kern concert at 54 Below, the new theatre-district cabaret, July 6-7. We look at Luker's past work on the musical theatre stage, including her Tony-nominated performance as Magnolia in the revival of Kern and Hammerstein's Show Boat.
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.
