Six Degrees of Separation on Broadway - Tickets - Summary - Photos
Show Summary - Six Degrees of Separation on Broadway Six Degrees of Separation is a play by John Guare, which was first performed on Broadway in 1990. That year, it was nominated both for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as for the Tony Award for Best Play. The title refers to the concept of everybody being connected to everybody, with a maximum of six people in the chain between everyone in the world. Paul, a young black man, shows up to the Central Park side apartment of the Kittredges; John is an art dealer, Ouisa is his wife. When Paul arrives, he is suffering from a minor stab wound and professes to be a friend of the Kittredges’ children at Harvard. He also refers to his father as the director of the Broadway production of Cats, and he is in New York to pay him a visit. During this revival of Six Degrees of Separation, Cats happens to be playing on Broadway as well. We soon find out this is a lie, and the police are called in, but Paul escapes. We then see Paul taking up with a young man named Rick and his girlfriend, and it soon becomes clear that Rick is the Kittredges’ son. What ensues is a fascinating story about the ways we are all connected. Under the able direction of Trip Cullman, a young Off-Broadway stalwart finally making his Broadway debut with two shows this season: Six Degrees of Separation and Significant Other, this production is sure to catch the attention of both theatre aficionados and also those who just enjoy good storytelling.
