With raves from the NY Times, Variety and NY Post, is it the best reviewed show of the fall?

I'd say Virginia Woolf and Sorry both rival it, with respect to critical assessment.

I have another question. Is PIANO LESSON the greatest play of the last quarter century? I vote yes.

I'm sure ANGELS IN AMERICA, AUGUST; OSAGE COUNTY, DOUBT, and any number of other rapturously-received plays would have votes as well, henrik (and I personally would throw TOPDOG/UNDERDOG, THE GOAT OR WHO IS SYLVIA?, THE KENTUCKY CYCLE and THE PILLOWMAN in the ring as well.)

Absolutely. WIT, JOE TURNER'S COME AND GONE, LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE (and every other McDonagh play) and COPENHAGEN would likely have their champions as well (as well they should).

ARCADIA gets my vote, along with both ANGELS IN AMERICA plays.
CLOSER also a (close) runner-up.
THE REAL THING exceeds the quarter-century stipulation... but it's also right up there for me.
