Ben Harney in Dreamgirls
"Before I ever did this show, watching Ben Harney was like watching a magician do the unbelievable and making you believe it. Ben made me both fall in love with Curtis Taylor Jr. and want to punch him out at the same time."
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.
