PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Kate Rockwell and Rock of Ages Stars Pick Favorite Songs From the ROA "Cutting Room Floor"
15 May 2013
Adam Dannheisser: "Friends and Lovers" by Gloria Loring and Carl Anderson Duet. Best worst love song ever. Ever… But so true. And smooth. Could have been called "Friends with Benefits" or "F*** Buddies." Remember that night in the community college parking lot? Damn security guards. First time I ever drove naked. First time. Great night.
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.
