"My number one theatrical experience, bar none, happened to me in 1964 - the curtain rose on a man wearing tse-tses (a religious undergarment). He spoke directly to us and then gestured to the wings… Suddenly the stage was filled with Jews. Yes, Jews. Just like me - JEWS! The man was Zero Mostel. The show was Fiddler on the Roof. And I never felt alone in the world again."
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.
