THE SCREENING ROOM: The 2013 Grammy Hall of Fame Inductees Meet Broadway (Video)
21 Nov 2012
On Nov. 20 the Grammy Hall of Fame announced the 27 new singles and albums that would be inducted for their distinct and historic qualities.
A handful of the titles have Broadway ties, and Playbill.com has compiled a collection of videos celebrating the music. Kurt Weill's Lost in the Stars, Frank Sinatra's single of the Kander and Ebb classic "New York, New York" and Elton John's self-titled 1970 album are among the recordings to be included.
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.
