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.
About the Ticket Supplier: Second Stage Theatre
Director Carole Rothman and actress Robyn Goodman founded Second Stage Theatre in 1979 to give ‘second stagings’ to contemporary American plays that originally failed to find an audience due to scheduling problems, inappropriate venues or limited performance runs. Since then, Second Stage has evolved from a small theatre into an Off-Broadway institution dedicated to developing plays, artists and audiences.
Second Stage Theatre gives new life to contemporary American plays through ‘second stagings;’ provides emerging authors with their Off-Broadway debuts; and produces world premieres by America’s most respected playwrights. Through both the production of new plays and long-term residencies that focus on artistic process rather than product, artists find a supportive environment in which to try new roles, production designs and writing techniques. Audiences are an essential factor in program development at Second Stage Theatre, which is nationally known for its dedication to building future audiences by educating teens about the art of contemporary theatre and encouraging their participation in the cultural life of New York City.
For nearly three decades, Second Stage Theatre productions have launched the successful careers of numerous directors, actors, playwrights and artists, many of whom regularly return to work at Second Stage. The company’s mission also has expanded to the commissioning of a body of multigenerational plays; the creation of a training base for young directors and a home base for mid-career directors; and the development of educational projects that are integrated with the ongoing artistic work at the theatre.
