Well Story

What do you do when you're trying to tell your story, and your Mom has found her way into your play? Welcome to the world of Well, Lisa Kron's hilarious and endlessly inventive comedy. Well opens with Lisa Kron's mother sitting on a La-Z-Boy recliner in the middle of the stage. As the play goes on to deal with Kron's personal experience of healing, a comedic coup d'etat breaks out. The actors critique the script, her memories conflict with her flashbacks, her mother interrupts with her own opinions, and Kron finds herself in danger of losing control. Well's Broadway mounting comes exactly two years after its acclaimed run off-Broadway at the Public Theater, where Ben Brantley of The New York Times called it "wonderful and delirious." He went on to declare that Well is filled "with plenty of bright one-liners and priceless tales of embarrassment. This deeply affecting shows has a warmth that makes you want to recommend it to everyone." This play is shaping up to be one of the don't miss theatrical events of the spring season!
