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

GO SEE IT! The rough edges actually make it even more interesting and thought provoking. This is a playwright to watch. She has something to say that is worth pondering. We need lots more plays of this caliber and on meaty important social and personal themes. She manages to make you connect emotionally with even the nasty characters; the characters are real and 3 dimensional, not cardboard representations of a 'position' or a type. GO SEE IT.
