Andrew Victor: Annaleigh Ashford would be a hysterical Vivian Ward!
Annaleigh Ashford received her first Tony Award nomination for her delightfully kooky performance in the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots. She has also been seen on Broadway in Wicked, Legally Blonde and Hair as well as in the Off-Broadway premiere of Dogfight. Ashford can also be seen in the HBO original series “Masters of Sex.”
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.
