PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Drew Gasparini, Alex Brightman, Andrew Kober, F. Michael Haynie Pick Songs for a New Year
01 Jan 2014
Drew Gasparini: "Year Round Summer Of Love" (LOLO). This song is a celebration of all the things that are pleasurable — summer, sex, good times and embracing the feeling of all of those things sticking around. Such a fun jam, and it happens to be written and performed by my rad girlfriend, Broadway's Lauren Pritchard (LOLO).
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.
