The description caught my attention:
“Lisa Kron, the multi-talented humorist, performer, playwright, and Tony Award-winning writer and lyricist behind the recent Broadway hit Fun Home takes us on a hilarious, self-referential journey that explores everything from chronic allergies, to community organizing, and most importantly, to her zany, unpredictable relationship with her mother.”
Then I learned that one of my favorite performers, Sarah Rudinoff, plays Lisa Kron in this production of “Well” at Seattle Rep? So in.
We all need a laugh right now. One of the valuable things about live theatre is that it makes us be present and in the moment. Put your own troubles aside and step inside the Seattle Rep’s doors to see one of the best actors of today in a unique, dark comedy.
I’m not familiar with Lisa Kron (playwright) or actress Barbara Dirickson (who plays the character of Lisa’s mom), but I’m delighted that “Well” will introduce me to both of these talents with the skilled direction of Braden Abraham.
Bonus? The show is 1 hours and 30 minutes with no intermission (I’m personally not a fan of 3 hour productions, so just including this for those who share my feelings).
“Well” plays now through March 10.
