Betty Buckley in Cats.
" I remember the way the theatre felt. It was scary, it seemed dark and dirty and messy. Everyone was scary to me. I was so young. It was truly another world. I mean, they were cats! And, I was a little girl. But it was simply incredible. You knew they were human beings but they seemed like cats. It can sound silly now, but to a child, this is wondrous. And, Betty Buckley was a goddess cat. A voice that can touch you beyond words."
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.
