Well is a unique and imaginative production all about empathy, race and the power of storytelling, all from the mind of acclaimed solo-performance artist Lisa Kron. The cast also features another veteran, Jane Houdyshell.
It asks the Question: What do you do when you‘re trying to tell your story, and your mother has somehow found her way into your play? This is the plot of “Well,” and you can expect the unexpected.
The play opens with Lisa Kron‘s mom sitting on a La-Z-Boy recliner. As the play goes on to deal with Kron‘s experience of healing, the comedy begins to take over. The actors critique the script, her memories conflict with her flashbacks, her mother interrupts with her own observations, and
Kron is constantly in danger of losing control. The production comes to Broadway after a critically acclaimed run at New York’s Public Theater. The New York Times’ Ben Brantley deemed it wonderful and delirious.
