PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Newsies Stars Corey Cott and Kara Lindsay Pick Their Favorite Alan Menken Tunes
26 Jun 2013
Corey Cott: "Santa Fe" from Newsies. I couldn't leave this out. After having the privilege of singing this song every night for pretty much a year now, it will always be engrained in me as a paramount part of Menken/Musical Theatre history. I fall in love with it again and again nightly.
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.
