Resonant, Absorbing, Entertaining

See it if Tracy Letts is never less than smart and funny and this seems like a very of-the-moment story

Burn This
Midtown W
Great acting, Dated, Intelligent, Uneven

See it if Adam Driver is spectacular in a good production of a not-so-great play with some very entertaining moments, mostly when he is on stage
