Here's how "Volume 2" of From Here & There is billed: "From Here & There… Volume 1 was a compilation of rock songs from all over Drew's catalogue but the brand new set list for January will showcase his compositions for musical theatre, featuring a number of songs from his award-winning musicals Crazy, Just Like Me and Make Me Bad (book by Alex Brightman), as well as the premiere of new songs from two of his latest projects: The Up and Down and The Wreck. And of course, no Gasparini concert is complete without a good ol' jam session."
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.
