SWEAT begins on Broadway March 4th


“America needs SWEAT. We’ve been thrilled by the voracious appetite that audiences at The Public have had for Lynn Nottage’s masterpiece, and are thrilled that it will continue its life on Broadway. No piece I know captures in such brilliant and absorbing particulars the drama and fury of Americans who feel left behind in our new economy. We need to listen to these voices with openness and compassion; SWEAT allows us to do just that, in a brilliantly theatrical way.”
Oskar Eustis
Oskar Eustis
Artistic Director of The Public Theater

For my money, the theatre is up there in the ten top reasons to be human. I leave my home and go sit in a dark room with complete strangers and watch actors do their stuff because I want to be inspired. I’m asking to be involved. I’m volunteering to be led down any old path they choose as long as they don’t let go of my hand. And if I see a show, and it is NOT so very good – I will try to divert you, because I don’t want you to come to the temple when the preaching isn’t up to snuff. I will bar the door, I will swing from rafters, I will yell FIRE just to set your feet on a path that does not lead to disappointment. Do something different with your evening I will say. Save your money for dinner with a friend you haven’t seen in months because you are too frigging busy. Go take a walk with your dog or your child or your significant other. Go to bed early, I will say. Don’t come to the theatre when it is less than it can be. I’m an usher snob, and that’s all there is to it.
