    Synopsis: 

    Based on Kate Davis’ 2001 Sundance Award-winning documentary, SOUTHERN COMFORT tells the true story of a group of transgender friends living life on their own terms in the back hills of rural Georgia. Winner of the prestigious Jonathan Larson Award, this folk and bluegrass inspired musical is a celebration of redefining family and choosing love over every obstacle. Tony-winning lyricist/composer of Falsettos William Finn calls SOUTHERN COMFORT, “remarkable,” with a score that “mines the country’s heart, and unveils, along its way, surprising pathways to a new world.”

    ‘Hungry’ Portrays a Mourning Clan in Election Year 2016

    Ben Brantley

    March 6, 2016: As befits a work with the title “Hungry,” food is prepared — ardently and aromatically — in the wonderful new play written and directed by Richard Nelson, which opened on Friday night at the Public Theater. Yet it is unlikely that the ratatouille and apple crumble on offer will satisfy the appetites of the five women and one man assembled in a snug kitchen in Rhinebeck, N.Y. The hunger being experienced here, which pervades this exquisitely acted production like scents from a laden stove, can’t be assuaged by second helpings. Though they are hardly poor or homeless, the inhabitants of Mr. Nelson’s latest offering are still starved — for stability, a promise that they aren’t alone and the reassurance that the familiar town and country in which they have lived for so many years isn’t disappearing as they speak.
