This marvelous production heralds Rush’s debut on the Great White Way, and it is Sarandon’s first time on Broadway in over 25 years.

Age May be inappropriate for 12 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Ionesco's absurdist style can strike some as too tedious or too odd, but if you don't mind something a little different, this is a wonderful and well-acted production of a play that explores the subject of death in a touching and comic fashion.
