February 15, 2017: Though its words are well chosen and artfully placed, Tracy Letts’s Man From Nebraska, which opened on Wednesday night at Second Stage Theater, has a radiant respect for what cannot be said. As directed with masterly force and delicacy by David Cromer, with a matching performance by Reed Birney in the title role, this beautiful drama of lost faith occurs amid a darkness that swallows language.READ THE REVIEW

Sometimes even the most devout can lose their faith. When Ken (Tony Award winner Reed Birney), a middle aged man from Nebraska, suddenly finds he’s lost his, along with his sense of purpose, he goes on a wild adventure to find it. Along the way he encounters a world vastly different from his own, filled with chance meetings and romantic encounters that shake him to the core. From the playwright of August: Osage County comes a fascinating exploration into what happens when we lose our belief system and the characters that come into our lives on the path to a meaningful existence.
