06 Nov 2013
Michele Ragusa: "Bohemian Rhapsody" (Queen). There's no way my list would be complete without Queen. Since my love for theatre started early, hearing a pop band that sounded so symphonic really turned my head. This song has been used in so many formats (including the Muppets), and the storytelling and Freddie Mercury's voice make this a MUST for me.
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.
