PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Last Five Years' Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe Pick Favorites by Jason Robert Brown
16 Oct 2013
Betsy Wolfe: "Stars and the Moon" (Songs for a New World). I always like to listen to this song to make sure I'm reaching for the things in life that will feed my soul. A self-check song, if you will. Oh, and it's beautiful.
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.
