Miles2Go2 said: "Wow. Just wow. Still processing tonight. Easily one of the finest nights of theater I’ve ever experienced. The whole cast was firing on all cylinders, including Thatcher Jacobs as Jason. I was crying so much at the end that the woman next to me patted my knee to comfort me. I have to get up in less than 3 hours to catch my early flight home so I’ll try to keep this short. Eden Espinosa, Max Von Essen, Nick Adams and Nick Blaemire were just phenomenal. Som

There are pics from last night on Instagram, and the stage looks VERY low.

I wouldn't consider myself a zealous theatre fan, and frankly tend to hate ALOT, if not most,of what I see. I think this show brilliantly portrayed the current stateof the world, in a Shakespearean period manner. and THAT is what makes good theatre for me. reflecting modern opinions in an artistic

CT2NYC said: "I do find it odd that the age recommendation on Telecharge has always been 10 and up. That's just silly."
Saw it last night for the second time and there was a kid sat right in front of me who had to be no more than 10. I'll give him credit for staying pretty well behaved until towards the middle of Act 3 when he got a bit squirrely until the big finish. Not sure why parents would want to take a 10 year old to a 3.5 hour play
MollyJeanneMusic said: "Laura is one of the most considerate about that. Whenever she knows she has to be out, she lets people know. If someone chooses not to check and then complains, that's on them."
I mean not to defend that woman at all, but not everyone has or checks social media before they see a show

Well as long as they’re trying hard, I guess that’s all that matters

I’m going to stick by calling it a mess. Is it understandable? Of course, but cancelling two dates is a mess. I walked past the Booth on my way to the Jacobs and there were people there who had no idea their show was cancelled.
I had tickets on the 5th, and had them refunded and was going to get tickets on the 9th, but didn't. But I’m sure someone did, and now they’re dealing with two separate cancellations.
It’s not about being the first to see it. If they needed a whole week

Yeah check TM everyday. Especially for singles. I got a center aisle orchestra seat for $99 a part the day before the show. And I just got Dress Circle Row B off stubhub for $85 a part the day before

I certainly won't complain about more of Dave's work being produced

SEA WALL / A LIFE at The Public Mar 5

Saw this tonight and stayed for the talkback afterward. I thought this was pretty incredible. Agree with the others that A Life is the stronger of the two pieces. Gyllenhaal is just more charismatic and his piece is better written, but I thought both pieces are fantastic. Sturridge has some heart breaking moments.
The talkback was interesting as well. They talked a lot about how the two pieces relate, and how blocking and the stage direction evolved over rehearsal and previews.
