15 May 2014
Tony Award-winning actress LaChanze, who lost her husband in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, performed a moving version of "Amazing Grace" during the May 15 dedication of the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City.
The If/Then and Color Purple star dedicated her performance to her late husband Calvin Joseph Gooding, who was among those killed.
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.
