Theater: Helen Hayes Theatre / 240 West 44th Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

Lobby Hero is indisputably set in a lobby — the nondescript foyer of a nameless New York City apartment building — though it’s not immediately clear who the hero might be, or if one exists at all in director Trip Cullman’s high-wattage production of Kenneth Lonergan’s clever, discursive 2001 dramedy.

The candidates are slim: Michael Cera’s chatterbox night watchman, Jeff; his brusque, bearish boss, William (Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry); anxious rookie cop Dawn (Bel Powley); and her alpha-dog partner, Bill (Chris Evans, in his Broadway debut). Then again, they’re also the only options; no one else appears in Lonergan’s sparely staged four hander, first premiered just a year after his lauded 2000 film debut, You Can Count on Me, and a decade and a half before he became a household name of sorts with Manchester by the Sea (which earned him an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and a Best Actor trophy for Casey Affleck).
