Part Three finds Clark, Charl Brown (who plays Smokey Robinson) and Dominic Nolfi (who plays Barney Ales) meeting fans at the stage door, doing lunch at the legendary Sardi’s Restaurant (they feature a special actors’ menu!) and shopping for a birthday gift for a special hair and wig person. Watch Part Two.
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.
