22 May 2013
Nick Blaemire: "The Best is Yet to Come" (Cy Coleman) Since we're doing a Big Band concert, I would be remiss to leave out Cy Coleman. Again, hard to choose just one, but in terms of "classic" Cy Coleman, this one is emblematic of being incredibly awesome.
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.
