A sad romantic comedy sounds like a contradiction in terms, but it’s an apt-enough description of “Linda Vista,” a slight but funny and quietly affecting play from Tracy Letts CONTINUE READING THE BROADWAY NEWS REVIEW
Tracy Letts, the profusely gifted playwright who also happens to be a brilliant actor, or vice versa, is working in an elevated sitcom mode as well as a revealing personal vein in Linda Vista. The self-inflicted woes of a middle-aged white man, victim of his own inebriating cocktail of testosterone and narcissism, might seem a tone-deaf subject for character study in our current moment of masculinity vivisected and reconstructed. But don't let the slick barrage of one-liners deceive you into thinking there's no room here for bruising self-examination and perhaps even tentative growth. CONTINUE READING THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW
For all its easygoing pace and humor, Linda Vista goes to some truly dark places. The challenge here is to show how Wheeler’s corrosive charm grows on people, how he wears them down with his languid, often entertaining negativity, while also revealing the toxicity and sense of entitlement that runs beneath his persona. In the end, he’s just another jerk who expects the world to come to him, and leaves devastation in his wake. But that also makes him relatable; we’ve all known our share of Wheelers, and most of us have probably been some variation of him at various points in our lives. CONTINUE READING THE VULTURE REVIEW
