A Close Shave: Aaron Ramey Comes Clean on Jekyll & Hyde
Aaron Ramey was compelled to grow massive mutton chops to help create an authentic look for his character in the 19th century-set Jekyll & Hyde. With the show now closed and summer quickly approaching, Ramey was this time compelled to remove his fantastic facial hair. Watch as Ramey deconstructs, reconstructs and eventually shaves off his chops and stache (which he’s worn for the better part of a year) and rejoins Broadway in the 21st century.
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.
