In this new feature, Broadway.com staffers send personal shout-outs to applause-worthy stars, shows and more.

“Are you high?” With those three words aimed at Gabriel Ebert, Mary Louise Wilson sets in motion the comic chemistry that makes 4000 Miles [now at Lincoln Center Theater’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater] one of the season’s most delicious treats. It’s no surprise that Wilson, a Tony winner as Big Edie Beale in Grey Gardens, can wring every laugh out of a script. But Ebert holds his own in Amy Herzog's ultimately touching slice-of-life play about a grieving 21-year-old who takes refuge in the Greenwich Village apartment of his prickly 91-year-old grandmother. Beyond being a walking sight gag (he’s tall; she’s tiny) the co-stars establish a rhythm that carries the audience through digressions on Marx, the internet, sex and the possibility of camping out in Manhattan, not necessarily in that order. Together, Wilson and Ebert create an irresistible familial bond. Will you be our grandma, Mary Louise?
