06 Nov 2013
Seth Rudetsky: "That's the Way I've Always Heard it Should Be" (Carly Simon). Obsessed with the eerie melody and amazingly dark lyrics… Carly Simon sings of married couples and says, "They have their silent noons, tearful nights, angry dawns." Whoa!
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.
