PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Last Five Years' Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe Pick Favorites by Jason Robert Brown
16 Oct 2013
Betsy Wolfe: "A Miracle Would Happen" (The Last Five Years). I'd sing this song in a heartbeat if I were a guy, and I'm so happy to hear it anytime as long as it's not Adam Kantor singing. Get me literally anybody else, and it's great… Just checking to see if Adam is gonna read this!
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.
