PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Wicked Actress and Texas Native Katie Rose Clarke Picks Songs That Go "Back to Her Roots"

"Papa Come Quick" (Bonnie Raitt). I grew up listening to Bonnie Raitt. I think that the very first time I heard the slide of her guitar I was a fan. I couldn't have been much older than seven or so. I will never be as cool as her. Picking one song will be hard, but the "Luck of the Draw" album is a special one. Any time she wails a bluesy riff on her guitar, I get excited. "Papa Come Quick" is a good one for that. And her version of "Love Me Like a Man" is perfect. She's just so cool.
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.
