In lieu of the annual Broadway on Broadway performance this year, members of the Broadway community gathered in Duffy Square on Sept. 9 to honor the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City.
A host of Broadway show folk performed the Kander and Ebb classic "New York, New York" at 4 PM, on the traffic island in the north end of Times Square (where the TKTS booth stands).
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.
