"In the world premiere of Ethan Coen's Almost An Evening, three short plays unsuccessfully tackle important questions. In Waiting, someone waits somewhere for quite some time. In Four Benches, a voyage to self-discovery takes a British intelligence agent to steam baths in New York and Texas, and to park benches in the U.S. and U.K. In Debate, cosmic questions are taken up. Not much is learned," explain press notes.

Almost An Evening plays Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00pm, Saturday matinees at 2:00pm and Sundays at 3:00 and 7:00p. The production is virtually sold-out, however all tickets are $45.00 and may available by calling Ticket Central at 212-279-4200 ( Atlantic Stage 2 is located at 330 West 16th Street (between 8th & 9th Avenues).
