"Our Country's Good"

Great theater, meaning brilliant writing, extraordinary and sexy cast, wonderful direction, humanist message for our own time, and for the ages, and a wonderful performance space*, but it's going to be around for just one more day! Yeah, tears too, but I could still see very well.

Try to get into Timberlake Wertenbaker's, "Our Country's Good," at the Culture Project, at 212-875-7995.

* go early enough, sit on the far side of the stairs, and watch the audience descend and find their seats around the open rectangle floor. Notice the lighting. As you wait for the company of those who will actually be aware they are performing, you'll think you're already in the midst of a play. You are.
