THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Tony Nominee Joan Rivers Shares Her Cherished Theatregoing Experiences
26 Jan 2012
Playbill.com's new feature series, Their Favorite Things, asks members of the theatre community to share ten of the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience. This week we spotlight the choices of Joan Rivers, the Tony-nominated actress (Sally Marr...and Her Escorts), writer, comedienne, TV host and reality star (WEtv's "Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best").
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.
