Blake Sherman: I think he would be good as Guy in Once.
Steve Kazee originated the role of Guy to Tony Award-winning acclaim in Once, the musical based on the 2006 indie film of the same title. The production, which won the 2012 Tony Award for Best Musical, currently features "Dr. Who" star Arthur Darvill and Joanna Christie as the lovelorn troubadours at the center of the tale.
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.
