PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Drew Gasparini, Alex Brightman, Andrew Kober, F. Michael Haynie Pick Songs for a New Year
01 Jan 2014
Andrew Kober: "For All We Know" (song by Coots and Lewis (1934), cover by Donny Hathaway). The lyrics of this gorgeous song speak for themselves. "Love me tonight, tomorrow was made for some, tomorrow may never come for all we know." I mean, come on. Love what's in front of you. Next year isn't a guarantee. I close all of my solo shows with this cover, and it's such a lovely way to say, "Goodnight, and I hope to see you soon."
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.
