OBSESSED!: Haven Burton Has Total Eclipses of the Brain and Legs
Haven Burton joins Seth Rudetsky in studio for the latest episode of OBSESSED! Seth is ready to roll with the Off-Broadway production of his comedic jukebox musical Disaster! and it just so happens that Burton is his newly-cast leading lady. She tells the tale of her own onstage disaster during her days in Shrek the Musical when her mind wandered just a wee bit. Then she recreates her Disaster! audition, which required that everyone in the room close their eyes so that she could secretly set up a big comedic reveal during her performance of a tune from The Little Mermaid.

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.
