This literate family drama by Jon Robin Baitz, a Pulitzer Prize nominee for 2011's Other Desert Cities, boasts a strong ensemble cast led by award-winning stage and TV actor John Noble (Fringe, Sleepy Hollow). The Substance of Fire finds the proud head of a fading publishing house facing off against his three adult children, who're trying to convince him to release a commercially-successful novel, versus the imprint's usual esoteric material, in a desperate bid to keep the failing family business from going down in flames. Co-starring are Halley Feiffer (You Can Count on Me), Daniel Eric Gold (Ugly Betty), Carter Hudson and the Obie-winning Charlayne Woodard (The Witch of Edmonton, In the Blood). Learn More

Very good play set in a lovely little venue. Strong performances by everyone - Topher Grace is perfectly cast, and Olivia Thurlby is particularly strong in her role. For those of you going to the Second Stage theater for the first time - it's small and the rows are steeply angled, so don't worry too much about needing to be close to the stage. We had aisle seats in the last row but had no problem with sightlines and didn't feel we missed out on any of the intimate cast-audience dynamic that a play like this requires for a good experience.
At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, Porter (Topher Grace: Traffic, Spider-Man 3, In Good Company, That 70’s Show_) has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as a corporate “ninja” and had a nervous breakdown. It’s been four years since he’s had a job or a date, and he’s decided to give life another shot. From the playwright that brought you the 2010 hit_ Trust and the director of the critically acclaimed Bachelorette (2ST’s Uptown Series_), Lonely, I’m Not_ is a comic journey that follows Porter as he meets an ambitious young businesswoman, Heather (Olivia Thirlby: Juno, Being Flynn, United 93) who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.
This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
_Running time is 90 minutes with no intermission. _
