11 Dec 2013
John Bolton: "We Need a Little Christmas" (The New Christy Minstrels). I love those great, swingin' '60s vocal arrangements of classic carols by groups like the Ray Conniff Singers or the New Christy Minstrels. So sing-along-able.
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.
