"Les Skivvies" Channel Jacques Brel with "Frosty le Snowman" Mashup
Musical theatre performers Nick Cearley and Lauren Molina are The Skivvies, the award-winning (and scantily-clad!) musical duo who perform stripped down versions of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Here, the duo takes to a smoky cabaret stage as "Les Skivvies" to channel Jacques Brel with a special mashup — adding '80s anthem "I Melt With You" to "Frosty the Snowman" allows for a slightly darker take on the holiday classic. Broadway pit musician Shannon Ford (complete with corncob pipe and button nose) performs as the doomed snowman and joins in on drums. See the cast of Motown The Musical perform a holiday classic of their own.
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.
