Producing two plays on the same stage at the same time certainly involves a whole lot of craziness. Still, we’ve got 5 reasons we love a rep.
The rotating repertory—two shows running in rotation over a the same six-week period—is a PlayMakers tradition seasons in the making. It takes creative thinking, careful planning, and enormous amounts of time to pull it off.
It’s happened to all of us. Upon hearing where we work, new acquaintances often ask, “PlayMakers Repertory Company, huh? What does that mean?” Well, really, it’s all in the name.
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
This 80-minute show is penned by Lucas Hnath, one of the most interesting, focused, counterintuitive and intellectually compelling playwrights of our moment.
Alissa Wilkinson, Christianity Today
The New York theatre scene is not noted for its religious acumen or open-mindedness. But that’s what makes Hnath’s play all the more remarkable.
Charles Isherwood, New York Times
Religious beliefs evolve, just as people do, in ways good and bad. But they rarely change quite as suddenly as in Lucas Hnath’s “The Christians.”
