Resonant, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if you want to see marvelous actors in a funny, relevant, sad play. The dialogue is realistic, and the play makes you think about family.

Don't see it if you have no sense of humor or if you think Jesse Green is always right. I totally disagree with his assessment of this thoughtful play. Read more

Must see, Resonant, Hilarious, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a play that has been perfectly cast, with each actor shining in their role. A hilarious family drama that really resonates.

Don't see it if you don't like dark comedies, intense family dramas, or don't like August Osage County.

Time Out New York

4/5 Stars: "In Leigh Silverman's production for Second Stage, the gifted cast...keeps the energy high. And the play does have touching things to say about the difficulty of trying to navigate a course between the Scylla and Charybdis of noncommunication and too much information."
