MichaelSeel: Who else but Katie Finneran? Was there ever a more perfect role for her?
Finneran is known for her roles in comedies, and she won the Tony in 2002 for her role as Brooke Ashton in Noises Off and in 2011 for her hilarious turn as drunken barfly Marge MacDougall in Promises, Promises. After playing the drunken villain Miss Hannigan in the Broadway revival of Annie, Adelaide might be a nice change for her!
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.
