  August: Osage County at Everyman Theatre

August: Osage County

Everyman Theatre
315 W. Fayette St Baltimore

Tracy Letts' August: Osage County is a gripping and darkly funny play that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play. At an Oklahoma farmhouse, the Weston patriarch goes missing. The family gathers hoping for good news, but instead find themselves coming to grips with closeted skeletons and festering wounds that resurface at this homecoming. Populated with tour de force characters such as Violet, the pill-popping, chain-smoking, Eric Clapton-loving family matriarch, this black comedy charges forward with the mesmerizing effect of watching a deliciously choreographed train wreck of epic proportions. This wickedly funny portrait of a truly American family held a spot on Entertainment Weekly's "best-of" list for the decade, described by the magazine as "a lightning-fast jolt of pure theatrical electricity."

Washington Post - Highly Recommended

"...Lancisi's formula is simple: mainstream plays plus the best actors (largely local and familiar) he can grab. The season's upcoming "God of Carnage," "Topdog/Underdog" and the classic "The Beaux' Stratagem" break no new ground, except, as Lancisi likes to point out, each work is a Baltimore premiere. Everyman is only the city's second fully professional resident theater after Center Stage (in business since 1963), so the meat-and-potatoes approach seems right. Let the actors have at it."

"...Broadway has come home to Baltimore as Everyman Theatre opens its doors at its brand new home on Fayette Street, bringing along with it the Pulitzer Prize-Winning play August: Osage County, a Tony-Award Winning play by Tracy Letts. Directed by Vincent M. Lancisi, this production brings a touch of a New York City evening into Charm City with its extravagant set, sensational actors, and marvelous new house in which it's mounted. The quintessential dark comedy - filled with family dysfunction - erupts onto the stage in this fast-paced drama."

"...Everyman Theatre's production of August: Osage County, written by Tracy Letts is a fitting and triumphant inauguration of the company's new Fayette Street stage. Under the strong direction of Managing Director Vincent Lancisi, this Baltimore premiere of the award-winning August bodes well for the future of the Everyman Company."

A gorgeous new space deserves an equally stunning production. Everyman Theatre has pulled off this challenging feat with its sparkling renovation of the old Town Theater movie palace and its shattering and laugh-out-loud staging of playwright Tracy Letts’ mama drama August: Osage County.
