BroadwayWorld brings you full coverage from opening night below!
Lungs tells the story of a young couple contemplating having a child in a world of global anxiety and political unrest. If they overthink it, they'll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster. What will be the first to destruct – the planet or the relationship?
Lungs received a world premiere at Washington, D.C.'s Studio Theatre in September 2011, where it inaugurated their Studio Lab series. Under the direction of Aaron Posner, The Washington Post called it "smart and stimulating." The Helen Hayes Awards recently nominated Lungs for a Charles MacArthur Award for Best New Play or Musical.
