PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Michael Cerveris, Julia Murney, Annie Golden, "Joe Iconis & Family" Pick Favorite Holiday Tunes
20 Dec 2013
Annie Golden: "Christmas, Baby Please Come Home" (Darlene Love). I would say "Christmas, Baby Please Come Home" because this year marks Darlene Love's 27th year singing it live on "Late Show with David Letterman," and I have participated in at least seven of those performances! And, I got to back her up on Broadway and Off in The Leader of the Pack! That song holds up just like the woman who sings it year after year!
Or I might say "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from your rock-n-roll Christmas Angel cause Judy Garland sang it in the film "Meet Me in St. Louis," and Garland is an idol of mine. That tune is a classic and just heavenly, yo!
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.
