THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Book of Mormon Star Ron Bohmer Shares His Theatregoing Experiences
19 Mar 2014
Playbill.com's feature series Their Favorite Things asks members of the theatre community to share the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices of singing actor Ron Bohmer, who can currently be seen as Joseph Smith in the national tour of the Tony-winning The Book of Mormon. He will also be featured in Broadway By the Year — The Broadway Musicals of 1940-1964 March 31 at The Town Hall.
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.
