PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Motown Actress and Soul Singer Morgan James Shares Her Musical Inspirations
04 Sep 2013
"I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" (The sensitive soul: Donny Hathaway). Donny is a real master of song. He always found a way to let the listener in, in a real personal way. His sadness, his darkness is palpable — and makes me feel less alone. A special artist he was. "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" is one of my favorite songs ever.
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.
