FACT: First on Broadway in 1922, The Hairy Ape is one of Eugene O’Neill’s most important plays, and it’s arguably one of the most significant American plays of all time. The story of a laborer who is degraded by wealthy society, it is a key example of Expressionism, in which the physical world on stage reflects a character’s emotions and point of view.
FACT: The Lifespan of a Fact isn’t expressionistic, but it is a comedy of conflict, like many classic plays where characters with big, opposing ideas hilariously battle it out. Get your tickets now to see how it goes down!
FACT: Released in 2003, The Station Agent features several actors who went on to be big stars, including Bobby, a pre-Game of Thrones Peter Dinklage, and a pre-Mad Men John Slattery. The movie was written and directed by Tom McCarthy, whose 2015 film Spotlight won the Oscar for Best Picture.
FACT: Just like Spotlight, The Lifespan of a Fact is about real-life journalists, but unlike Spotlight, The Lifespan of a Fact is funny. Get your tickets now to see why!
FACT: On Master of None, Bobby plays a famous TV chef who gets in hot water (no pun intended) for inappropriate behavior. Bobby partially took the role because Master of None was one of the few TV shows he watched.
FACT: Like Master of None, The Lifespan of a Fact is a comedy with a thoughtful edge. Get your tickets now to find out why!
