DIVldquo;Lettsrsquo; astonishing creationhellip;is mammoth in many ways. Itrsquo;s a full, three-act evening, more than three hours in length. And there are 13 characters, each getting Lettsrsquo; full attention. He creates a parade of memorable people spanning several generations of unhappiness and unfulfilled dreams. August: Osage County has introduced a major playwright to Broadway.rdquo; mdash;Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press ldquo;This fusion of epic tragedy and black comedy ishellip;a bold step forward for Letts, whose earthy, distinctly contemporary wit flows throughout. Originally presented at Chicagorsquo;s Steppenwolf Theatre, his account of a family whose secrets and lies come spilling forth under duress ranks with the best American drama of the past decade.rdquo; mdash;Elysa Gardner, USA Today ldquo;Tracy Letts, in his Broadway debut, creates a hugely ambitious, highly combustible saga that will leave you reeling. August: Osage County may make you think twice about going home for the holidays, but for Broadway theatergoers, itrsquo;s a great big exhilarating gift.rdquo; mdash;Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News ldquo;The new Broadway seasonrsquo;s first must-see offering and arguably the best new American play since Albeersquo;s The Goat. This is a play that will leave us laughing and wondering, huddering and smiling, long after the house lights come back on.
