PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Drew Gasparini, Alex Brightman, Andrew Kober, F. Michael Haynie Pick Songs for a New Year
01 Jan 2014
Alex Brightman: "Rich Girl" (Hall and Oates). I only picked "Rich Girl" because I couldn't put every H&O song on here. But, truly, every song they've ever written will be in my headphones until I'm well and gone from this consciousness. Daryl Hall… one of the best voices of EVER AND EVER. And John Oates… umm...he...umm...he harmonizes with Daryl Hall.
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.
