Tony Award-winning playwright/director Richard Nelson returns to The Public with the world premiere of The Michaels. Part of Nelson’s critically acclaimed Rhinebeck Panorama, which includes The Apple Family and The Gabriels, this new drama places the audience directly into the kitchen of Rose Michael, a celebrated choreographer. Dinner is cooked, modern dances are rehearsed, and the meal is eaten—all amidst conversations about art, death, family, dance, politics, the state of America, and how the world sees our country...and a host of everyday questions that make up the richness of ordinary life. With grace and depth, Nelson once again creates an intricate, moving snapshot of modern-day America. Laced with humor and heartbreak, The Michaels is a beautiful new play, illustrating the rich humanity within the incidental moments of one day.
