Lisa Kron's Well Set to Open at Public Theater March 28

News   Lisa Kron's Well Set to Open at Public Theater March 28 Lisa Kron will return to The Public Theater this spring with the world premiere of her play Well. Previews begin at Martinson Hall on March 16, with the opening set for March 28.

Directed by Leigh Silverman, Well explores "the dynamics of health, family and community with the story of her mother's extraordinary ability to heal a changing neighborhood, despite her inability to heal herself.  In this 'solo show with other people in it,' Kron asks the provocative question: Are we responsible for our own illnesses?  But the answers she gets are much more complicated than she bargained for when the play spins dangerously out of control into riotously funny and unexpected territory." The "other people" in the solo show are Kenajuan Bentley, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Jayne Houdyshell, Lisa Kron, Joel Van Liew, and Welker White.

Kron registered a solid hit at the Public a few seasons back with 2.5 Minute Ride.

The Public Theater is located in Manhattan at 425 Lafayette Street. Tickets are available at the theatre’s box office or by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information, visit the Public Theater at www.publictheater.org.
