PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Off-Broadway's Piece of My Heart Cast Members Pick Favorite Songs by Bert Berns
24 Jul 2014
Leslie Kritzer: "Heart Be Still." The first time I heard this song sung in rehearsal I just wept… A beautiful gospel style song with so much depth and emotion. Funny enough, it follows my previous favorite song in the show, so the two together just ruin me! I cry like a baby.
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.
