Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts and Tony-winning director Anna D. Shapiro return to Broadway for the first time since their Tony-winning sensation August: Osage County. This brisk new comedy is about small-town politics and real-world power.
A 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Minutes is Letts’ brisk, scathing new comedy about small-town politics and real-world power. Full of chicanery, back-stabbing, manipulation and perhaps some mistruths, the play refracts the current state of America and our politics through a town meeting in the very small fictional city of Big Cherry.
This powerful, resonant, and funny portrayal of democracy in action proves that everything you know can change—it’s just a matter of minutes. After all, the smallest towns keep the biggest secrets.
The Minutes by Tracy Letts has set its large cast with a roster that includes Armie Hammer, Jessie Mueller, Blair Brown and Letts himself in a production directed by Anna D. Shapiro..
This is a 16-week limited engagement. Preview performances begin on February 25, 2020 with opening night on March 15, 2020 at the Cort Theatre, 138 W 48th Street, NYC. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click here.
“Nothing in this explosive 90 minutes play is as it seems…A real-life heart-in-the-mouth experience.” The Chicago Tribune
“An astonishing new play. If you have observed the workings of a city council (or, for that matter, your condo board), it is a good bet you will recognize the play’s lunatic version of democracy at work, and then be confronted by something far more pernicious than garden variety graft, corruption, chicanery and the pursuit of trivial personal agendas.” Chicago Sun Times
