Currently starring in Broadway's Motown: The Musical, Morgan James broke out a brand new tune called “All Cried Out” (she penned it along with Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello) at the sound check for her last 54 Below gig. James returns to the venue on June 3 for another show that will feature the same bluesy and soulful tunes, many of which appear on her album “Morgan James Live From Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola” and many of which will appear on her soon-to-be-released CD (“All Cried Out” included).

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.
