21 May 2012
York Theatre Company presents NEO 8, a benefit concert celebrating new, emerging and outstanding musical theatre writers, May 21 at The York Theatre at the Theatre at Saint Peter's.
The eighth annual concert — directed by Daniel Goldstein (Godspell), with music direction by Matt Castle (York's Enter Laughing, The Musical), David Gardos and Michael Borth — features songs by Andrew Gerle, Jenny Giering, Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair, Marisa Michelson and Ryan Scott Oliver.
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.
