Lovely Austin Chronicle review for Middletown:

"Definitely a 'thinking show' in my book, but with numerous riotous moments, too. . . . Boasts one of the largest casts I've ever seen at Hyde Park, and everyone is solid. As is typical, the production team succeeds in bringing pretty impressive production values to such a small space. But not everything is predictably HPT here. Eno's take on life--and the way it is delivered in partnership with Webster and company--is exactly what you expect to see at Hyde Park, and also precisely what you don't. A delightful paradox indeed."
Middletown is a hilarious, moving, Our Town-inspired take on 21st century life from Will Eno, author of HPT's award-winning production of Thom Pain (based on nothing). The New York Times praised the play's "screwball lyricism. . . delicate, moving and wry. . . . Middletown glimmers from start to finish with tart, funny, gorgeous little comments on big things."

The HPT production is directed by Ken Webster and stars Marc Balester, Emily Erington, Molly Fonseca, Tom Green, Jessica Hughes, Dane Krager, Rebecca Robinson, Benjamin Summers, Katy Taylor, Mical Trejo, and Ken Webster.

The show runs at 8:00 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, September 20 - October 20, 2012. Every Thursday is Pay What You Can Night; Friday, and Saturday tickets are $20 ($18 for students, seniors, military, and Austin Creative Alliance members), except for the final weekend (October 18-20), when ticket are $22 ($20 for students, seniors, military, and Austin Creative Alliance members). Purchase tickets online or call 479-PLAY.
