Our fifth play of the season, opening in early March,
Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles
Boy, do I like this one.
They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. The same could be said of the relationship between 21-year old Leo and his 91-year old grandmother, Vera, in this warm-hearted story of two outsiders who help each other find their way in today’s world.
This funny, moving and altogether wonderful drama is a delightful reminder that a keen focus on life’s small moments can pay off in a big way onstage.
A gentle and loving play with a good dose of humor, 4000 Miles is another perfect example of why the DownStage was built. You’ll want to be “in the same room” for this one.
It would be a shame to miss one subtle, revelatory moment.
Lovely, lovely play.
So that’s #5. #6 will pop up in your email box tomorrow.
