PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Kate Rockwell and Rock of Ages Stars Pick Favorite Songs From the ROA "Cutting Room Floor"
15 May 2013
Justin Sargent: "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns N' Roses. This song actually kicks off our "intermission mix" for the audience, which starts right after the end of the first act. The audience usually cheers and then there's a moment of disappointment when they realize it won't be in the show. No G'n'R?! COME ON!!
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.
