PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Off-Broadway's Pageant Contestants Pick Songs They'd Do Drag To
21 Aug 2014
Seth Tucker: "Llorando" from "Mulholland Drive" ("Crying" by Roy Orbison). Continuing with the odd oldies, I love the idea of doing recognizable tunes in a creepy way. The a cappella and foreign language makes it that much better. Obsessed with this song, it would be the best/creepiest drag song ever.
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.
