PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Barrett Wilbert Weed, Lilli Cooper, Jennifer Damiano and More Pick Favorite Taylor Swift Performances
17 Jul 2014
Joey Contreras: "I Knew You Were Trouble" (Live at the AMAs 2012). Tay Tay channels her inner Britney on this elaborate production of a number: Dancers. Costume changes. A remixed track. Basically everything a pop performance should be, and she achieves it with her best awkward sexiness. If anything, watch the last minute. Those accent hits + the pandemonium on stage = T Swizzle Gold.
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.
