This message, while not well received at the time, was essential to the forward movement of theatre. A Doll's House, Part 2 , written 140 years later by Lucas Hnath, aims to answer the question of what happened where Henrik Ibsen's classic play left off?

Everything from “Chicken Little” to “The Gingerbread Man” gets a complete makeover. Fun music and barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to pollute the entire audience.
