The Minutes

The Minutes

This Broadway production reunites playwright Tracy Letts with director Anna D. Shapiro after a premiere production at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2017. A 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Minutes is Letts’ brisk, scathing new comedy about small-town politics and real-world power. Full of chicanery, back-stabbing, manipulation and perhaps some mistruths, the play refracts the current state of America and our politics through a town meeting in the very small fictional city of Big Cherry.

Information is subject to change prior to opening night.
