PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Drew Gasparini, Alex Brightman, Andrew Kober, F. Michael Haynie Pick Songs for a New Year
01 Jan 2014
Drew Gasparini: "This Is The New Year" (Ian Axel). I love Ian Axel… I loved him before he was called Great Big World. I loved this song before it was on "Glee" when I heard him play it in Joe's Pub back in 2009. This song reminds you to not forget the past, but also to live in the moment. Promises you make should stick, and you should be ADVENTUROUS!!! A very important thing to remember in each New Year — adventure.
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.
