We asked Jerry to play “fill in the blanks” about the shows in the just-announced coming season. Here are his answers:
The play that made me cry when I read it is How to Write a New Book for the Bible.
The playwright everyone should keep an eye on is Annie Baker, who wrote Circle, Mirror, Transformation. That play is like watching a brilliant, hilarious independent film on stage.
The play that might win the Pulitzer: Clybourne Park. It’s in the running, and rightly so.
Moment I can’t wait to see on stage: Lorenzo Pisoni flying in and out of a circus trunk in Humor Abuse.
Feel-good play of the season: Sylvia. There’s a reason it’s such a subscriber favorite. You can’t help but love that woman, er, dog.
Audiences think they know, but will be surprised by The Glass Menagerie. This will be a fresh, innovative take on an amazing American classic.
Set I can’t wait to see: Red. Rothko paintings everywhere? It will be gorgeous.
Favorite character: Aphra Behn in Or. She’s a spy AND England’s first female professional playwright.
