Summary A zookeeper in Queens dreams of being a famous songwriter, but he must contend with his schizophrenic wife, his ambitious mistress, and his bomb-making son.

May be inappropriate for 10 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

Our Recommendation
Having played the son in the 1986 production of this off-the-wall drama, a more experienced Ben Stiller returns to Broadway to play the father, Artie, a would-be songwriter who is desperate to commit his wife, marry his mistress, and start life anew in California. Playwright John Guare's signature mix of intelligent satire, zany humor, black comedy, and emotional truth are all on display in The House of Blue Leaves, and this is a fine production of one of his most acclaimed plays. Headed by Stiller, the cast is uniformly terrific, each playing characters that are frequently difficult to sympathize with, yet who remain strangely likable. The House of Blue Leaves is a funny, fascinating, and sometimes downright bizarre evening at the theater.
