THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Silence! The Musical and "Queer As Folk" Star Randy Harrison Shares His Theatregoing Experiences
08 Aug 2012
Playbill.com's new feature series, Their Favorite Things, asks members of the theatre community to share the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices of Randy Harrison, who played Justin Taylor in all five seasons of Showtime's "Queer As Folk," and recently joined the cast of the award-winning Silence! The Musical at the brand-new Elektra Theatre in Times Square.
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.
