Photo Coverage: Lisa Kron's Well Opens on Broadway
Obie Award-winners Lisa Kron and Jayne Houdyshell reprise the roles they created at The Public Theater last year. They are joined by Daniel Breaker, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, John Hoffman, and Christina Kirk. Well is produced by Elizabeth I. McCann and Scott Rudin, Boyett Ostar, Roger Berlind, and True Love Productions. Well "opens with Lisa Kron's mother sitting on a La-Z-Boy recliner in the middle of the stage. As the play goes on to deal with Kron's personal experiences of healing, a comedic coup d'état breaks out. The actors critique the script, her memories conflict with her flashbacks, her mother interrupts with her own opinions, and Kron finds herself in danger of losing control. The result is a hilarious and brazen piece that questions our thoughts on the conventions of both theatre and wellness," according to press notes.
