Our Town

This is not a theater blog, it’s a food blog. So why, on this Friday morning, am I writing a post about “Our Town”? Specifically, the production on Barrow Street in the West Village directed by David Cromer? All I will say, here in this first paragraph, is that if you live in New York and you want to see something beautiful and powerful, an emotionally-charged and totally un-cheesy interpretation of a classic American play, rush downtown and behold this lovely, surprising and deeply moving show. If, however, you don’t live in New York or you’re stubbornly anti-theater and don’t think you’ll ever see it but you’re curious why I’m writing about it here, keep reading. Everyone else, stop now.
