Story

What Is the Story of Our Town?
Meet the good citizens of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, circa 1901. An omniscient Stage Manager describes this small New England town and introduces its residents, including the Gibbs and Webb families, who live next door to each other. In three acts, audiences witness a day in the life of Grover’s Corners, celebrate the marriage of Emily Webb and George Gibbs, and hear the reflections of those who have died.

Reviews

A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"Five stars! A muscular, unfussy reckoning with a great work, totally contemporary, yet true to the original!"

Time Out New York

David Cote

"A wonderfully intimate and highly rewarding production. A surprise [director David] Cromer springs - a beautiful feat of stagecraft that transmits the essence of Wilder's philosophy with an overwhelming sensory immediacy."

The New York Times

Charles Isherwood

"Riveting, relevant, enduring and exceptional! It stirs the imagination and sensees and sends you out deeply touched."

New York Daily News

Joe Dziemianowicz

"David Cromer's rethinking of Thornton Wilder's masterpiece is a landmark! I don't use the word 'genius' casually, but Mr. Cromer may fill the bill. I don't know a more gifted stage director! Arrestingly original!"

The Wall Street Journal

Terry Teachout

"It's our kind of Town! A wonderful production with revolutionary staging by David Cromer. It truly astounds!"
