Woolly Mammoth Theatre is extending their run of “A Bright New Boise” for one week. The eccentric occupants of the Hobby Lobby break room will be ruminating on the rapture until Sunday, November 13.

  Peter Marks believes “you’ll find substantial beauty in Woolly Mammoth’s production,” and suggests that Michael Russotto, as an exiled believer facing a crisis of faith, “might be giving the best performance of his career. It’s both delicate and dark, a portrayal that reminds that no matter how long you’ve lived, you never, ever know what’s really going on in someone else’s head.” Read the rest of Marks’ review and share your thoughts with us (@jessicagolds and @petermarksdrama) on Twitter using the hashtag #WoollyBoise.
