The New Group presents Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play about an American family struggling to overcome the many obstacles in the way of the American Dream. Starring Ed Harris. More…
Dodge and Halie are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. When their grandson Vince arrives with his girlfriend, no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret. This poetic and comedic take on the American family drama pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.
See it if great acting. Many 5-min segments are entertaining in themselves. But the actions character take to link them are just illogical. not clever
Don't see it if it's one soap box after another. no character asks any questions we'd like explained. And the only one they do, the title already answered.
See it if You like strange stories w/ odd characters. It has good moments & performances but I felt unfulfilled by unanswered questions by the end.
Don't see it if You arent satisfied by a shows that don't explain why characters are the way they are. I waited for some big reveal that never came.
See it if ...you're a Sam Shepard fan. Captivating performances tease out an over-arching mystery.
Don't see it if By the time the mystery was revealed, I no longer cared. There was no sense to anyone's actions. Maybe I'm just too old for this s**t.
See it if You want to add to your Sam Shepard portfolio. Also, if you want to see a play that won the Pulitzer (albeit in 1979).
Don't see it if you like topical plays that still resonate today.
See it if You have never seen "Buried Child" before - it's not often revived, and it's a rare chance to see someone like Ed Harris take on the lead.
Don't see it if You have seen other productions. This one was clearly weak and juvenile.
See it if you did not see the original production and you like dark drama, Sam Shepard plays deliver but for me, not this production.
Don't see it if you do not like the dark and quirky style of Sam Shepard plays,
See it if This was a disappointing revival. Taissa Farmiga is too green for the part. The Broadway revival of 1996 or 97 was far superior.
Don't see it if You saw the 1996 or 97 Broadway revival.
See it if You are a fan of Sam Shepard Plays. Some good moments very good performances but I play does not progress and some things left uexplained.
Don't see it if You don't enjoy place with quirky Offbeat characters
See it if You want to see a typical Shepherd play, albeit lacking in menace or a terrific Ed Harris performance.
Don't see it if Shepherd is not your cup of bullion or you want your family dramas neatly tied up and relatable.
See it if Loved the first act went down from there and could have skipped the dead baby. Acting was wonderful, a real great.
Don't see it if Don't want to see a dead baby.
See it if You like suspense with great acting. I thought the actors did a great job playing intense characters but found it a bit confusing
Don't see it if You don't like dark suspenseful stories.
See it if You want to see some excellent actors struggle to bring sense, cohesion and emotional truth to a difficult American classic
Don't see it if You aren't into Sam Shepard, or if you are really into Sam Shepard and have seen a better production of this play.
See it if You like classical playwriting and long dialog with not a lot of action. See it if you want to see Ed Harris be awesome.
Don't see it if You want to be captivated by an engaging mystery. It's a bit meh in the end.
See it if You want to see Ed Harris, Amy Madigan and other great performers up close and in person.
Don't see it if You want to be entertained, enlightened, absorbed...the direction bogs this production down creating more questions than it answers
