PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Pop Show's Capathia Jenkins, Leslie McDonel and N'Kenge Pick Favorite Michael Jackson Songs
11 Sep 2013
N'Kenge: "Billie Jean" This song is a masterpiece. I love it so much and even more when I knew it was inspired by a true-life experience of his. This song secured Michael Jackson as being a top pop artist of all time.
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.
