PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Skivvies' Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, Wesley Taylor and Adam Kantor Pick Songs to Strip to
05 Jun 2013
Nick Cearley: "I Want Candy," The Strangeloves. This song has always made me want to go to the beach. What do I do when I go to the beach? Take off my clothes! This song is the soundtrack for that activity. Plus, with the double entendre of the lyrics and the playful summer energy of the song, this is exactly what I would be game for stripping down [to] — literally.
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.
