Rebecca Naomi Jones
Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot, Passing Strange) offers a solo evening of her favorite songs at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse April 4 as part of the American Songbook Series.
Jones, who has also appeared on the New York stage in Murder Ballad and the Shakespeare in the Park musical Love's Labour's Lost, takes to the stage at 8 PM. She is joined by special guests Bill Mayo, Leslie McDonel, Alysha Umphress and Libby Winters.
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.
