There was a lot of chat when Quiara Alegría Hudes’ play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama back in April, but I haven't seen anything on this board since it began previews at Second Stage. Any reactions from those who have seen it?

“Water By The Spoonful” turns out to be a thoughtful, inventive, occasionally funny, at times moving story about addiction — about forgetting the unforgettable and forgiving the unforgivable in order to move on. It also explores the new ways we relate to one another – meaning, online – and the search for connection. There are enough vivid characters, fine writing, and startling moments – including the story that explains the title — to make the production at Second Stage worthwhile theatergoing, even if not entirely satisfying.

Nice review on villagevoice.com.

Says it's a big gulp that is too much at times, but is filled with lyricism.

AP loves it:

In Quiara Alegria Hudes' beautifully resounding drama "Water By the Spoonful," the playwright examines an array of emotional toils by splashing together droplets of life's bleak realities, harsh revelations, fragile successes and modest triumphs, all of which conspire like tiny specks of contrasting colors on a canvas.

Each drop of color by itself seems mundane. Together they gradually come into focus as a rich, brilliant montage of American urban life that is as dazzling to watch as it is difficult to look away from.
