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

This was a great play. The actors were talented. I related due to the actors playing Puerto Rican characters.
The theme was drug abuse, war flashback, I could almost see what was being described. There were characters chatting online about drug abuse and rehabilitation. There was comedy although, not too much. This was a serious issues but, it was so enjoyable. The beginning was a bit slow, but after the intermission it picks up and at the end we all gave a standing ovation. I was so pleased I attended and told my friends about it.
This show’s running time is two hours and 10 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.
