"My underdog pick. A solid Arthur Miller play – based on his marriage to Marilyn Monroe – with very affecting performances by Peter Krause and Carla Gugino. They were both so great. For some reason, the production was severely underrated and underappreciated – and didn’t get the run it deserved – but a very memorable experience for me, nonetheless."
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.
