In the 2009 revival, Catherine Zeta-Jones starred as Desiree Armfeldt and received the 2010 Tony Award for Best Actress for her performance. Two-time Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters later took over the role. For more on the production, visit the Playbill Vault.
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.
