Zak Resnick: "Something's Coming" (West Side Story, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim) This song has always meant so much to me. But I especially fell in love with it when I heard Sammy Davis Jr.'s version. I love when a song can really lend itself to more than one genre of music.
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.
