Lindsay Mendez, who currently stars as Elphaba in the hit Broadway musical Wicked, has had a busy year. The actress, who was previously on Broadway in Godspell, went on to the popular Off-Broadway musical Dogfight and developed her own musical song cycle with Godspell's Michael Holland, entitled You're Gonna Hate This.

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.
