13 Oct 2013
@Wilshawl: I could totally listen to Seth Rudetsky on his piano for hours just playing and singing every show tune that comes to mind.
Sirius XM Broadway host, actor, musician and Playbill.com columnist Seth Rudetsky made his Broadway debut as Sheldon Farenthold in The Ritz. He is the afternoon Broadway host on Sirius/XM radio and a weekly columnist for Playbill.com. As a musician, he has played piano for more than a dozen Broadway shows including Ragtime, Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera and was the on-camera vocal coach on MTV's "Legally Blonde: Search for Elle Woods." Rudetsky was also the artistic producer/music director for the first five annual Actors Fund fall concerts including Dreamgirls with Audra McDonald and Hair with Jennifer Hudson.
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.
