In Part Two of this two-part series, Brightman annoys his cast mates between shows, fetches coffee for a pal, gets some fresh air and encounters some startled fans, then takes the stage for show number two, after which he presents a very special dance number. See Part One.
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.
