True West Reviews

As embodied by a brilliant Ethan Hawke and a tightly wired Paul Dano, sibling rivalry has seldom felt this ominous. Hawke is delivering a faultless performance, his best ever onstage. Director James Macdonald is a master at building suspense. Shepard’s wild West just got a lot scarier.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
A gradual, grinning descent towards chaos. It lurks and menaces. It goes for the kill. It’s funny and nasty, debauched yet dramatically laser-focused.
Sara Holdren, New York Magazine
True West is rock and roll theater.
David Cote, Observer

Summary

Broadway fireworks don’t get more combustible than this. Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano head the cast of Roundabout Theatre Company’s latest triumph, and the result is “a ripping revival of Sam Shepard’s masterwork” (The New York Times, Critic’s Pick). In this powerhouse new production—on Broadway through March 17 only—two of this generation’s hottest actors face off as estranged brothers in an empty California home, and the sparks truly fly.

The Times says, “Hawke delivers a faultless performance, probably his best ever onstage,” and The Wall Street Journal says, “everything Dano does is excitingly surprising.” Don’t miss director James Macdonald’s suspenseful, smoldering True West. “It’s as funny as it is serious, as entertaining as it is profound” (New York Stage Review).
