The Christmas Songs: Holiday Albums from Broadway to Brighten the Season
24 Dec 2013
Linda Eder: "Christmas Stays the Same." The 2010 holiday album from Eder includes several Frank Wildhorn originals, including the title track (a beautiful new holiday tune that sounds like a classic from yesteryear), "The Bells of St. Paul," as well as "Here Comes Santa Claus/Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," "The Christmas Song" and "Ave Maria."
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.
