The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, raising awareness and funds for Lou Gehrig's disease, has taken the Internet by storm. Broadway has been nominated, and below are videos from casts, actors, singers and more.
As of Aug. 26, the ALS Association has received $88.5 million in donations compared to $2.6 million during the same time period last year (July 29-Aug. 26), and awareness has been raised by the viral Ice Bucket Challenge — asking individuals to pour ice water over themselves and/or donate to the cause.
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.
