The Cort Theatre opened its doors on December 20, 1912, with Peg O’My Heart, starring Laurette Taylor. Since then, more than 250 productions have called the theater its home, including the original productions of Once Upon a Mattress, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Boeing-Boeing and many more.
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.
