Second Stage presents Quiara Alegria Hudes' Pulitzer Prize-winning drama.
Comments from published critics
‘‘In Quiara Alegria Hudes' beautifully resounding drama 'Water By the Spoonful,' the playwright examines an array of emotional toils by splashing together droplets of life's bleak realities, harsh revelations, fragile successes and modest triumphs, all of which conspire like tiny specks of contrasting colors on a canvas.’’
‘‘Hudes—also a 2007 Pulitzer finalist for ‘Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue’ and book writer of the 2009 Pulitzer-finalist musical ‘In the Heights’—cares deeply about her characters. That concern is contagious.’’
‘‘[Armando] Riesco’s movingly drawn Elliot has the life-toughened exterior of a young man who is keeping his anxieties under tight but tenuous control.’’
