Three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and Tony nominee Kristine Nielsen star in this world premiere comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow, Taylor Mac. More…
In "Gary," Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, "Titus Andronicus." In Mac’s new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere. And two very lowly servants – Lane and Nielsen – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s only 400 B.C. – but it feels like the end of the world.
Directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe.
See it if You have read Titus Andronicus and want to have a fun night watching Shakespearean The Bird Cage with Nathan Lane.
Don't see it if You do not do crude or expect plays to only be serene, serious and life altering.
See it if Good thoughtful writing, totally original plays. Kristine Nielsen and Nathan Lane excellent. Set is amazing. An intelligent wonderful time.
Don't see it if you want fluffy easy to follow play. One must listen to every word, watch every movement, pay attention. Julie White is screechy and miscast
See it if If you enjoy thought provoking theatre presented in a comedic evening. Or just for the pleasure of seeing Nathan Lane be brilliant.
Don't see it if It seems to be divisive you either love it or hate it. Its a smart play. Not a spoon fed play. You will have to think.
See it if The script is written with a merging of high brow and low brow Shakespeare, bawdy and brilliant, crude and clever, raunchy and relevant
Don't see it if If you can’t stand listening to the style of Shakespeare then You won’t enjoy it.
See it if You like theater that makes you think. The cast is amazing. If you like something that is not typical fare, this is the ticket.
Don't see it if You hate something where the comedy makes you think. If you don’t want to brush up your Shakespeare before, don’t bother either.
See it if Outrageous play combining cultural highs (iambic pentameter, musings on the downfall of Roman civilization), and outstanding acting.
Don't see it if Don't go if you don't like references to bodily fluids (lots of them), penis jokes, fart jokes and clown noises.
See it if You want to see three great comedic performers in a vaudevillian absurdist comedy or you just want to see some strange and different.
Don't see it if You want a show with a clear plot or if low-brow humor isn't your thing.
See it if You want to see Nathan Lane and Kristen Nielsen butt heads (and other body parts) in Taylor Mac's exquisite iambic pentameter. Best set EVER
Don't see it if You voted from Trump or want mainstream comedy. With that sensibility this original and hilarious play will be a turn off.
See it if you are definitely well above a 8th grade level reading capacity. Witty and clever. Taylor Mac is brilliant
Don't see it if you need somone to constantly explain theatre to you. You believe babies in cages is ok.
See it if you are OK feeling a bit lost in a theater, don't need everything spelled out for you, are interested in the bizarre as art.
Don't see it if you can't abide some toilet humor, seeing male genitalia (even in cloth form), or desire to see a typical Broadway play.
See it if you have a love of the absurd and thought-provoking, and love it told thru some good ole bawdy humor with meaning that can hit home.
Don't see it if you have delicate sensibilities or don't welcome a bit of an intellectual challenge.
See it if You want to see great actors plying their craft deftly. The issues raised [with comedy] are thought-provoking and current.
Don't see it if You are not in the mood for war themes and are offended by 'gross' comedy and nudity. You are not willing to read the synopsis of Titus.
See it if You want to see three legends together on a stage. Or a play that is super original and unlike anything you've ever seen.
Don't see it if You're offended by dick and fart jokes. Or if you want a simple story that is easily understood.
See it if You're a fan of Nathan Lane or Julie White, or of bizarre low comedy dressed up with literary allusions and philosophical questions.
Don't see it if You don't appreciate gross-out humor, or dick jokes, or long-winded musings on the power of comedy to change the world.
See it if You are interested in seeing an ambitious work that mashes together slapstick with satire, Shakespeare with dick jokes, and smart with dumb.
Don't see it if You have a low tolerance for lowbrow humor.
See it if you want an irreverent, dark comedy that's full of both highbrow & lowbrow humor. The cast is fantastic. There are some hilarious moments.
Don't see it if you're at all squeamish, or can't handle humor about bodily functions b/c the lowbrow bits are quite low! I saw a good number of walkouts.
See it if you'd like a twisted play that screams "off-Broadway"; want to laugh out loud from the performances and set; want to be challenged.
Don't see it if you can't tolerate low humor or prefer splashy, coherent Broadway fare. Definitely NOT for everyone.
See it if You want to see a master of comedy, Mr, Lane, own the stage for 90 minutes
Don't see it if You are easily offended or you are looking for anything deep. The show rests in low humor (fart and penis jokes) and there is no real point.
See it if You like Nathan Lane, enjoy physical comedy, or like shows with very interesting staging and props.
Don't see it if You are easily offended by raunchy jokes, comedy involving body fluids/parts, or need a play with a plot that makes a clear point.
See it if Veering wildly between pathos and potty mouth fart jokes - like in a Shakespeare play - that both works and doesn’t at the same time
Don't see it if You can’t swing between high and lowbrow, know nothing about the massacres in Titus Andronicus and don’t care
See it if You might like this if you have a real good seat and a sense of humor that appreciates rhyming verse channeled through the Three Stooges.
Don't see it if Don't C unless some-1 that knows your sense of humor recommends U see it. Beware of "revenge recommendations" that hope U will hate it too.
