"The week they opened, I saw a matinee with Randy Graff. I was a goner after she sang 'Dividing Day,' but when she did the last number, 'Fable,' and the lights came up, show over, neither one of us could move. We sat there, effectively sobbing, not knowing quite what had just happened to us. It was a moment, to be sure. Still gets me. We sat there till the theatre was almost empty. (Bart Sher's South Pacific also got me — but for different reasons — what a stunning take on that classic piece!)"
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.
