PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Wicked Actress and Texas Native Katie Rose Clarke Picks Songs That Go "Back to Her Roots"
13 Nov 2013
"Downpour" (Brandi Carlile). I really like Brandi Carlile. I'm not super familiar with all of her work, but I think "Downpour" is just so beautiful. I sang it in a concert I did in my hometown and almost added it to my set for 54 Below. I connected with this song differently at that point in my life than I do now, so I decided not to perform it. But it's still a favorite.
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.
