The Minutes - 2022 - Broadway History , Info & More

Studio 54 (Broadway)
254 West 54th St. New York, NY

In this brand new comedy from Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts, nothing is safe at during the town council meeting, not the town's history, the legend of a local hero, and not even the coveted privilege of reserved parking.

This razor-sharp story turns from hilarious to chilling as petty policy gives way to the truth bubbling just beneath the surface of the town's historical mythology.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR The Minutes

The Minutes Review. Tracy Letts’ political satire and haunted history lesson
7 / 10

What is happening in local city councils, school boards, libraries, and state legislatures - the book banning, curriculum censorship, voter suppression, the passage of blatantly unconstitutional culture war laws - has made Letts' play feel less like allegory and more like a prescient dramatization, if one filtered through the playwright's imagination, sense of humor and sense of outrage.

THE MINUTES: DARING IN BOTH STYLE AND SUBSTANCE
8 / 10

Audience mileage will vary on the play which transforms itself from a satirical comedy about small-town bureaucracy to a dark vision of historical revisionism and collective guilt. Lett’s audacious conceit doesn’t fully work in its lengthy build-up and abrupt transition to surrealism. But it’s nonetheless a bracing and fascinating attempt to wrestle with deep moral themes.
