@tmsilvestri: Ashley Spencer. Most honest portrayal.
Ashley Spencer has been seen on Broadway in Hairspray, Grease, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and, most recently, Rock of Ages. The actress took on the rock 'n' roll diva Sherrie in Rock of Ages, and Eponine would offer the actress a chance to display another aspect of her many talents.
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.
