"The original cast (Angela Lansbury, Len Cariou, Victor Garber, etc.) was simply sublime. I saw it the day it won the Tony! I remember riding the big escalator at the Uris (now the Gershwin) thinking that was the best musical I have ever seen. I was 15, of course, but I'm not sure my opinion has changed."
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.
