Review by David Walters

Tony Award-winning playwright/director Richard Nelson returns to The Public with the world premiere of THE MICHAELS, part of Nelson’s critically acclaimed RHINEBECK PANORAMA, which includes The Apple Family and The Gabriels.

THE MICHELS is a lovely slice of life, a moment in time, about a family figuring out what to do with death and what gets left behind as a family member prepares to leave this realm.
