PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Justin Sayre and More Pick Favorite Bernadette Peters Performances
15 Feb 2014
Hunter Ryan Herdlicka: "Time Heals Everything." The first show I ever saw in London was Mack and Mabel — needless to say it was also the first cast recording I ever owned. But when I heard Bernadette sing "Time Heals Everything" a few years later, the song took on a whole new meaning. It is absolutely raw and stunning.
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.
