PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Shoshana Bean Shares Her "Summer Lovin'" Playlist
16 Jun 2014
Shoshana Bean, who has been seen on Broadway in Wicked and Hairspray, will offer Los Angeles concerts June 17 and 24 — as well as a New York City show July 27. In anticipation of Bean's concerts, she shares her "Summer Lovin'" playlist as part of this week's Playbill Playlist.
Bean will play Downstairs at Fifty Seven June 17 and June 24 at 9 PM and NYC's The Cutting Room July 27 at 7:30 PM.
"I've chosen my summer songs playlist based on one simple litmus test: 'Does this song make me want to roll all the windows down, open the sunroof and drive down the PCH with my hair blowing in the wind?'" said Bean, who is currently based in L.A. "If the answer is yes, it's in. Here it is, in no particular order!"
Bean's albums include "Superhero" and "O'Farrell Street."
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.
