BWW Review: Tracy Letts's BUG at Steppenwolf Theatre Company Photo BWW Review: Tracy Letts's BUG at Steppenwolf Theatre Company
by Rachel Weinberg - Feb 4, 2020

Steppenwolf's production of ensemble member Tracy Letts's BUG is positively skin crawling, with magnificent central performances from Carrie Coon and Namir Smallwood that make the play all the more unnerving. While Letts's 1996 play may have seemed far-fetched and ahead of its time when it debuted in the nascent days of the internet, it reads eerily prescient now. BUG's dual exploration of paranoid schizophrenia and government surveillance becomes even more unsettling in the current digital era.
