John Tartaglia and Duncan Sheik in Rehearsal for Upcoming 54 Below Gigs
John Tartaglia's Decade Three (Sept. 8 and 16) will feature songs that the performer, now in the midst of his third decade of life, thinks best define his career so far. The eclectic set list will contain the funny, campy and outrageous (for example, Gary Adler and Phoebe Kreutz 's "Second Cousin") as well as the moving and meaningful (Jason Robert Brown's '"Stars and the Moon"). A singer-songwriter and a composer of musicals such as Spring Awakening, Duncan Sheik (Sept. 9-14) will perform selections from his wide body of work, including tunes from both his new album "Legerdemain" and the upcoming musical theatre production American Psycho.

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.
