Funny, Intense, Intelligent, Edgy, Profound

See it if Multi-layered unfolding of relationships, memories, cultural values and artistic sensibilities. Wonderful characters and structure.

Don't see it if You don't want to think about what is going on at multiple levels. You don't like a non-linear timeline.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you enjoy a well written drama which deals with art in general, artists and the role of art in society.

Don't see it if you prefer linear plots with lots of humor, action, and no philosophical issues.

February 13th, 2017

"An exceptional cast and astute direction make the quaint, four-flight walk-up worthwhile for theater lovers...The play’s give-and-takes touch on the various aspects of art...If that makes it sound rather dry, it’s not. Under director Jerry Heymann, the actors squeeze out plenty of juice in the confrontations...It’s Margulies’s story, the actors, and the direction that make this production such an absorbing evening of theater."

"Patricia and Nick become inextricably entangled in this subtle, psychologically complex exploration of the artist’s relationship to his art, to his personal life, to what it means to be a son, and to what it means to be Jewish in America...The razor-sharp dialogue keeps the audience raptly attentive...The actors are all fine, especially Nagrant...But the star of this show is Margulies, who has made a timeless work that still enchants while making its audience sit up and pay attention."
