PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Drew Gasparini, Alex Brightman, Andrew Kober, F. Michael Haynie Pick Songs for a New Year
01 Jan 2014
Alex Brightman: "Thrift Shop" (Macklemore and Ryan Lewis). I know that this song was one of the most played out songs of the last year, but there was a reason for it. I think 2014 is going to be (at least for me) the year of earning and saving. I'm going to live every day like I "got twenty dollars in my pocket."
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.
