Melissa Errico, Ryan Silverman and Judy Kuhn Star in PassionPassion, the dark, Italian-set musical rumination on the light and dark nature of love — and the idea of unconditional love — gets its first New York City revival starting Feb. 8. Tony Award winner John Doyle directs Tony Award nominee Judy Kuhn (Chess, She Loves Me, Les Miserables, Rags) as ugly Fosca, Melissa Errico (a Tony nominee for Amour) as the beautiful Clara and Ryan Silverman (a past Raoul of The Phantom of the Opera) as the handsome soldier, Giorgio, who inspires them both.

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.
