There is a great Thai restaurant called Chaba across the street. It's convenient to eat and don't have to rush to where you need to go to see the show.

Go beforehand to Morton's or Coolibris for their happy hour. Buy a drink at the show and bring it inside. End the night with a trip to the Redwood Room.

Description

Why is the playwright’s mom sitting on a recliner in the middle of the stage? The hilarious Well begins with OBIE Award-winning writer/performer Lisa Kron (2.5 Minute Ride; The Five Lesbian Brothers) performing a theater piece about her personal experiences of healing. But soon an irreverent coup d’etat breaks out onstage: the company of actors critiques the script, Kron’s onstage flashbacks don’t match her memories, and she quickly loses control. At the center of the chaos is her armchair-bound mother (played by Jayne Houdyshell in an award-winning performance), who keeps inserting her own hilarious commentary.

Written by Lisa Kron
