“Letts’ astonishing creation…is mammoth in many ways. It’s a full, three-act evening, more than three hours in length. And there are 13 characters, each getting Letts’ full attention. He creates a parade of memorable people spanning several generations of unhappiness and unfulfilled dreams. August: Osage County has introduced a major playwright to Broadway.” —Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press “This fusion of epic tragedy and black comedy is…a bold step forward for Letts, whose earthy, distinctly contemporary wit flows throughout. Originally presented at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, his account of a family whose secrets and lies come spilling forth under duress ranks with the best American drama of the past decade.” —Elysa Gardner, USA Today “Tracy Letts, in his Broadway debut, creates a hugely ambitious, highly combustible saga that will leave you reeling. August: Osage County may make you think twice about going home for the holidays, but for Broadway theatergoers, it’s a great big exhilarating gift.” —Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News “The new Broadway season’s first must-see offering and arguably the best new American play since Albee’s The Goat. This is a play that will leave us laughing and wondering, huddering and smiling, long after the house lights come back on."—Rob Kendt, Newsday “Tracy Letts’ August: Osage County is what O’Neill would be writing in 2007…. [Letts] recaptured the nobility of American drama’s mid-century heyday while still creating something entirely original.” —Jeremy McCarter, New York Magazine
