In the 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Water by the Spoonful, Elliot is a combat veteran who works at a sandwich shop in North Philly, cares for his dying mom and is trying to find his place in the world. At the same time, four addicts in recovery cling to their online support group, struggling to stay sober. Worlds collide in this moving collage of lives in crisis written by Tony nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights, Elliot: A Soldier's Fugue). Learn More

This was one of the best plays I have seen, it makes you laugh, and cry, but mostly think. What would have been going through this great man's mind knowing the death threats could come true any day? What would he want his legacy to be? Would he be scared, or defiant that he won't be able to fulfill his dream? Katori Hall gives us her interpretation of his last thoughts, with a twist, that will have you leaping from your seat for a standing ovation.
This production contains simulated cigarette smoking with a water-vapor device.
Running time is 90 minutes. There's no intermission.
