The Christmas Songs: Holiday Albums from Broadway to Brighten the Season
24 Dec 2013
Nancy LaMott: "Just in Time for Christmas" The 1994 holiday album from the late New York cabaret artist features the original Ahrens and Flaherty song "All Those Christmas Clichés," as well as "A Song For Christmas," "I Saw Three Ships," "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" and a revamped Christmas version of "Stay With Me" from City of Angels.
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.
