From Yasmina Reza, the French playwright behind Tony-winners Art and God of Carnage, comes this witty and acerbic play. Life X 3 is the story of Henry and Sonia, a married couple with a six-year-old son. On this ill-fated evening, a prominent astrophysicist who can make or break Henry's career shows up for dinner, along with his rebellious wife. The problem is, it's the wrong night and there's no food in the house (but plenty of wine). This is only the first catastrophe, as the veneer of politeness between the characters proves to be paper thin, only barely covering the tensions and power games bubbling underneath the surface. There are three ways the evening can go, and you get to see them all, as Reza reveals how the smallest change in circumstances can have a huge effect on the characters' fates. Learn More
The weather was a little cool outside.. I wore dressed in layers, as always. I'm usually cold when I sit in an audience, but I was fine here. Apparently other members of the audience were warm as they were fanning themselves, which I found distracting. Also the chairs are very creaky and when people would shift in their seats, it made noise which was also distracting..dress • Nov 11 2013 star this tip starred
