"The best thing about live theatre is that it's live. This means that the audience plays a crucial role. And I have never seen the role of the audience played better than at the final public performance of the original Broadway production of Les Misérables on May 18, 2003. We crazy-screamed, we ugly-cried, it was a moment for the ages. Oh, and the show was really, really good, too."
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.
