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

The writing was witty. And John Lithgow and Jennifer Ehle were really in their element. However, the play is not as good as Douglas Carter Beane's "The Little Dog Laughed," which we really loved.
Goldstar came through again, with excellent seats in the first row!

Meet gossip columnists Mr. and Mrs. Fitch. When the social circuit no longer provides juicy morsels, they find that great celebrity can appear out of thin air. Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane’s (The Little Dog Laughed, Xanadu) wicked new comedy is a scathing look at who is in, who is out and who may not even exist at all.
