Broadway’s crazy good revival of “Six Degrees of Separation” is proof of theater’s enduring impact. Even if you’ve never seen John Guare’s smart, juicy and still-potent 1990 comedy — or the film version — you probably know the meaning of the title. You’ve likely used it in conversation.Guare didn’t invent the notion of six degrees, but his play, based on true events, popularized it and made it shorthand for how everybody's connected. Or, on the other hand, kept at a distance — by just six other people.

---New York Daily News CONTINUE READING
Paul’s really a confused, possibly bisexual petty criminal, and Corey Hawkins endows him with just the right balance of vulnerability and class resentment. Allison Janney is a perfect Ouisa Kittredge: martini-dry and quick with a quip, almost undone by maternal instinct. John Benjamin Hickey flits amusingly about as her art-dealer and husband Flan. The ensemble required by Guare is quite large—15 actors besides the main three—and allows small but bright turns by Lisa Emery, Michael Siberry and the luminous Colby Minifie as Flan and Ouisa’s perplexed daughter

The production, directed with compassion and merciless hilarity by Trip Cullman, has a wonderful, luxuriously large cast, with some actors dropping in for just a few perfectly pitched scenes.
