@LookOutBroadway: Derek Klena (@DerekKlena) would bring a lot to the role in my opinion.
Derek Klena, who most recently starred as Fiyero in Broadway's Wicked, has also been seen Off-Broadway in Carrie and Dogfight. The actor will next appear in the Jason Robert Brown-Marsha Norman Broadway musical The Bridges of Madison County.
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.
