Sherie Rene Scott returns to 54 Below with her cabaret show Piece of Meat, through June 29. The show unravels a narrative (in her words and in the songs of artists like Kate Bush, Talking Heads, Joni Mitchell and Noah & The Whale) of a long-time vegetarian debating a return to carnivorous ways. Here, Scott hits the 54 Below kitchen pre-show as chef Andre J. Marrero prepares an espresso-marinated hangar steak — on the rare side, of course. Will Scott dive in and enjoy the pleasures of the flesh? For tickets and info visit www.54Below.com.
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.
