I just got some tickets for the wonderful Roundabout Theatre production LOOK BACK IN ANGER, at the Laura Pels Theatre, 111 West 46th Street for the following performances:
- Friday 1/27 at 8pm
- Saturday 1/28 at 2pm
I’ve been getting reviews back from people who have seen it this week and so far everyone has really liked it. It’s very dynamic.
Tickets are $30 (normally $81, more than half off!!)
Let me know if you are interested, for which performance, and how many tickets you would like, and we can go from there!
Description: Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, Tigers Be Still) directs one of theater’s most pivotal works, John Osborne's classic drama about four friends and lovers struggling to find direction without losing one another—or themselves. Adam Driver (Man and Boy), Charlotte Parry (Roundabout's The Importance of Being Earnest), Sarah Goldberg (Royal Court’s Clybourne Park) and Matthew Rhys (“Brothers & Sisters”) star in this scorching new production.
For Jimmy Porter, there is nothing more criminal than the lack of emotion and enthusiasm he sees evident in his generation, especially in his well-born wife, Alison, and their roommate Cliff, who have grown addicted to Jimmy’s passion and rage. But when Alison’s childhood friend Helena visits, she exposes the unsustainable madness of their relationships and living situation, forcing Alison to decide whether to leave the most exciting and dangerous man she’s ever known.
Still as shocking and relevant as when it first premiered in post-war London, Look Back in Anger is a sharply funny, fiercely honest exploration of political disillusionment and basic human yearning.
