PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Tony Winner Steve Kazee Picks His Favorite Indie-Rock and Alt-Country Songs
09 Apr 2014
"Will You Love Me" (The Vespers). A bit of a throwback here, but a simple, sweet love song. The swell of this song can't help but make your heart beat a little harder and your smile grow a little wider. If ever I need a little pick-me-up or a road-trip playlist, this is a first choice 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.
