OBSESSED! The Soon to Be High-Flying Jason Gotay Wants to "Shower With Han Solo"
As Jason Gotay prepares to enter a Broadway musical with the kind of high-flying stunts he didn't get to do in Bring It On: The Musical (we can't reveal the name of the show quite yet…), he met up with Seth Rudetsky for a new episode of OBSESSED! Gotay chatted about his mixed heritage, a recent sponsored ten-day trip to Israel, the rigors of wearing a "stoner poncho" in Bring It On and a new website that is an exhaustive resource for the sheet music of contemporary musical theatre. Gotay and Seth then performed a Bill Nelson and Will Aronson tune about one of the most popular "Star Wars" heroes using sheet music downloaded from that very same site. Read Seth’s weekly column.

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.
