Sierra Boggess, most recently seen on Broadway as Christine Daae in the long-running, Tony-winning The Phantom of the Opera, brings her new evening of song Awakenings to San Francisco’s Feinstein’s at the Nikko Jan. 18.
Boggess is joined by musical director Brian Hertz and her sister, cellist Summer Boggess, for the 7 PM evening that promises "a range of tunes from songwriters both new and old, and vocals that stretch from the sublime to the divine."
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.
