FOOL FOR LOVE, Starring Nina Arianda and Sam Rockwell, Opens on Broadway
FOOL FOR LOVE by Pulitzer Prize winner Sam Shepard, directed by Obie Award winner Daniel Aukin is now in previews and opens tonight, October 8, at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).
The cast of Fool for Love features Tony Award winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday), Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back), Emmy Award winner Tom Pelphrey (By The Water at MTC, End of the Rainbow) and Tony Award nominee Gordon Joseph Weiss (Fool For Love at Williamstown, Ghetto).
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. Beaten down by ill-fated love and a ruthless struggle for identity, can they ultimately live with, or without, each other? Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC; 4,000 Miles), Tony Award 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.
The creative team for Fool for Love includes Dane Laffrey (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (sound design), and David S. Leong (movement and fights).
FOOL FOR LOVE is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival.
