26 Mar 2014
Karen Mason: "My Coloring Book." How can I choose just one favorite Kander and Ebb song? If I have to choose, my favorite to sing is "Colored Lights." However, my favorite video is Barbra Streisand singing "My Coloring Book." When I was younger, I saw her sing on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and remember being blown away by the wonderful drama of the song and of the performance!
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.
