From 15 Mar 2022
After initial performances at the Cort Theatre in 2020, The Minutes will now reopen at a venue to be confirmed on Mar. 15, 2022.
The Minutes originally premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre in November 2017 and went on to be nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2018. However, for the Broadway production, Tracy Letts himself steps onto the stage as part of a talented cast that also includes Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller.
Tracy Letts has enjoyed an astounding career on the stage, both as an actor and a playwright. His most notable work is perhaps the 2007 masterpiece August: Osage County, which was honored with the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for ‘Best Play’ in 2008. He has also made his mark Off-Broadway with his celebrated plays Killer Joe, Bug, Mary Page Marlowe, and Man for Nebraska (another Pulitzer Prize finalist).
As an actor, he’s also been no stranger to Broadway, even winning a Tony Award for his portrayal of George in the 2012 revival of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? He was also lauded for his turns in Will Eno’s The Realistic Joneses in 2014 and the 2019 Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. Television fans, of course, will remember him as Andrew Lockhart on Showtime’s “Homeland” and as Nick on HBO’s “Divorce,” and his film career has reached new heights in recent years with appearances in such critics’ favorites as “Le Mans ’66,” “The Post,” “Lady Bird,” “The Lovers,” and “The Big Short.”

A town's proud history, the legend of a local hero, the coveted privilege of reserved parking: nothing is sacred during the town council meeting at the heart of Tracy Letts' new play. This razor-sharp comedy turns from hilarious to chilling as petty policy matters give way to the truth boiling just beneath the surface of the town's historical mythology.
