The picture-perfect facade of '50s-era family life is torn away in Far From Heaven, the stage adaptation of the Oscar-nominated romantic melodrama from director Todd Haynes (I'm Not There, Mildred Pierce). While managing a household that would show-up the Cleavers in its neatness and apparent civility, a Connecticut housewife discovers her husband's secret ... only to seek comfort in a forbidden relationship of her own. Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out) and the creators of the musical Grey Gardens collaborated on this romantic musical that evokes Haynes' original inspiration: the lush, Technicolor brilliance of the films of Douglas Sirk. Now, for its Boston premiere, Scott Edmiston directs a smart and sophisticated production at the SpeakEasy Stage. Learn More

The 3 actors were fantastic! This is a very heavy drama about 3 men taken as hostages in a foreign country. It made you think about people like John McCain and Nelson Mandela, what it must have been like for them and how they survived. The play deals with the many issues they confronted trying to stay sane by day to day.

A fine play depicting how three hostages cope with their imprisonment in Lebanon. Only 3 actors, all excellent.
Very tiny theater (rehearsal space, actually) - 2 blocks of seating, 1 facing stage, 1 on the side, five rows each of stadium...continued
