@Ladybirdplane: @ANALEIGHASHFORD I think she would be great and bring some spark to the role.
Annaleigh Ashford, who received her first Tony Award nomination this season for her portrayal of the quirky Lauren in the Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots, brings a "spark" to each of her Broadway outings. We would love to see what Ashford — who was also seen on Broadway in Hair, Legally Blonde and Wicked — could do with the role of the ill-fated Eponine.
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.
