IN THE WAKE OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: November 1, 2010
Synopsis: It's Thanksgiving of 2000 and the presidential election still has not been decided. Ellen insists that her friends and family don't understand how bad the situation really is. But no one--not her loving partner, Danny, nor the passionate Amy, nor the brutally pragmatic and world-weary Judy--can make Ellen see the blind spot at the center of her own politics and emotional life. A funny, passionate, and ultimately searing new play that illuminates assumptions that lie at the heart of the American character -- and the blind spots that mask us from ourselves.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
""Wow. I talk a lot!" So says Ellen, the garrulous heroine of “In the Wake,” Lisa Kron’s equally garrulous new play, which opened Monday night at the Public Theater. "
"You can't accuse Lisa Kron's new play at the Public Theater, "In the Wake," of lacking ambition. Set mostly during George W. Bush's first term, it touches on conservative and liberal politics, love and desire, self-discovery, art, ambition and success, gay issues, racism, the US tax code and its influence on strip malls."
""Wow! I talk a lot," declares Ellen, the passionate protagonist of "In the Wake," Lisa Kron's earnest but word-heavy political drama at the Public Theater. Despite some intense performances, smart direction from Leigh Silverman, and eloquently expressed ideas, the overabundance of talk is what chiefly emerges."
"A woman finds her personal life unraveling and her political beliefs challenged in Lisa Kron's In the Wake, playing at the Public Theater. Set against the backdrop of the major news stories of the first half of the decade, the show has the potential to pack an intellectual and emotional wallop. Yet, despite a top-notch ensemble working under the sure-handed guidance of director Leigh Silverman, and a fair share of zesty dialogue, the play proves to be a strangely unmoving experience. "
"What's the statute of limitations on hanging chad jokes and Florida recount rants? Coming in right around the 10-year mark, Lisa Kron's meandering new drama In the Wake (now playing at Off Broadway's Public Theater) is probably pushing it."
