The Real Thing

This witty and incisive drama, about a famous playwright who draws on his troubled personal life and unraveling marriage to an actress to create his works, was penned by a famous playwright -- Oscar and Tony-winner Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead). Deeply moving, bitingly funny and said to be at least semi-autobiographical, The Real Thing explores the complex nature of love, art and reality. The show won a Tony for Best Play in its original run and another in 2000 for its Broadway revival.

Recommended only for mature audiences.

I will be in the lobby near the windows from 7:30PM to 7:40PM (wearing red top and jeans).  Please come and say hello. 

Tickets and seating are on your own.
