CRITIC’S PICK! Sam Shepard’s wild West just got a lot scarier.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Mr. Hawke is delivering a faultless performance, probably his best ever” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Everything Paul Dano does in True West is excitingly surprising.” –Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

“A gradual, grinning descent towards chaos. It lurks and menaces. It goes for the kill. It’s funny and nasty, debauched yet dramatically laser-focused.” – Sara Holdren, New York Magazine

FOUR STARS! FOUR STARS!

Limited engagement on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street)

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) will conclude the new Broadway production of Sam Shepard’s Tony & Pulitzer Prize-nominated drama TRUE WEST, directed by James Macdonald (The Children), on Sunday, March 17.

True West stars Ethan Hawke as “Lee” and Paul Dano as “Austin.” The cast also includes Marylouise Burke as “Mom” and Gary Wilmes as “Saul Kimmer.”

At the time of closing, True West will have played 30 preview performances and 61 regular performances. Previews began December 27, 2018 and opened officially on January 24, 2019 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

Opposites attack in Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play about two brothers with more in common than they think. Holed up in their mother’s California house, screenwriter Austin (Dano) and lowlife Lee (Hawke) wrestle with big issues—and each other. Order vs. chaos. Art vs. commerce. Typewriter vs. toaster...Shepard’s rip-roaring classic returns to Broadway, gleefully detonating our misguided myths of family, identity and the American Dream.

The creative team includes Mimi Lien (Sets), Kaye Voyce (Costumes), Jane Cox (Lights) and Bray Poor (Sound).
