Tony Award winner Nikki M. James, who stars as Nabulungi in the Tony-winning hit musical The Book of Mormon, will offer two evenings of song this June at 54 Below.
Presented June 23 and 24 at 9:30 PM, the concerts promise personal stories and a "mix of Broadway favorites, contemporary pop and a few surprises." MAC Award winner Amy Wolk will direct the performances with musical direction by Nate Buccieri.
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.
