THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: Tony Winner and Chicago Star Bebe Neuwirth Shares Her Theatregoing Experiences
26 Feb 2014
"Well I walked into the theatre, saw the fire escape reaching to the heavens, and started to cry. Perfectly eloquent simplicity. The stunning cast, led by the luminous Cherry Jones, was completely, absolutely, deeply devoted to the play - the characters and depth of their relationships and emotions. It was a heartbreakingly beautiful, perfect piece of theatre. John Tiffany's direction is brilliant. Always."
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.
