THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Scottsboro Boys Tony Nominee Colman Domingo Shares His Theatregoing Experiences
12 Sep 2012
Playbill.com's new 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 Scottsboro Boys Tony nominee Colman Domingo, the actor-playwright-director who is currently directing Carlo D'Amore's No Parole, which is part of the 2012 All for One Theater Festival and will be seen Sept. 16 and 29 at the Cherry Lane Theatre; visit www.afofest.org. Domingo is also the playwright and star of the upcoming Public Theater production of Wild with Happy, and he can currently be seen in Spike Lee's "Red Hook Summer."
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.
