Second Stage Theatre presents the New York premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts' drama about a devout man who has a crisis of faith. Starring Tony winner Reed Birney ('The Humans.') More…
Sometimes even the most devout can lose their faith. When Ken (Birney), a middle-aged man from Nebraska, suddenly realizes he's lost his sense of purpose, he goes on a wild adventure to find it. Along the way he encounters a world vastly different from his own, filled with chance meetings and romantic encounters that shake him to the core. Written by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts ('August: Osage County').
See it if you love really slow paced mid-life crisis shows.
Don't see it if you expect a funny, fast paced or a normal Tracy Letts show. Even Reed Birney struggled to make this enjoyable. Pauses do not equal insight.
See it if you want to waste 2+ hours of your life.For an illuminating discussion of alts to faith, watch the doc The Unbelievers w/Dawkins.
Don't see it if you value intelligent, interesting, insightful theater. This is idiotic. Rich wh male leaves wife to live well in London. Nothing learned.
See it if Some nice performances. The second act had some clever lines. The backdrop in Act 2 was gorgeous.
Don't see it if A waste of a gifted cast. Boring. Had nothing to say. Went nowhere.
