Laura Osnes: "Wonderful Guy" (South Pacific). Likewise with this South Pacific song, I have gotten to sing it on numerous occasions, and I feel like I always find something new in it. The lyrics are clever, creative and remarkably descriptive of the whirl of emotions Nellie must be feeling!
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.
