Reading: "Box Americana"
Obviously I'm not going to review a reading of Box Americana, but I certainly hope to see Jason Grote's little gem of an observation on class struggle and capitalist dreams make its way to the Playwrights stage in the '08-'09 season. I liked this play much more than the freewheeling 1001 (which, despite moments of beauty, still felt disconnected to me) because despite the contraptions of narrative in place, the characters are all too familiar, and the social dangers all too real. It just seems more specific, more relevant, and it's got me all excited.
