Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts and Tony-winning director Anna D. Shapiro return to Broadway together with The Minutes for the first time since their Tony-winning sensation August: Osage County.
Blair Brown, Armie Hammer, Tracy Letts, and Jessie Mueller star in this record breaking hit production from Steppenwolf Theatre, which takes a look at the inner-workings of a city council meeting in the small town of Big Cherry—and the hypocrisy, greed, and ambition that follow.
This powerful, resonant, and funny portrayal of democracy in action proves that everything you know can change—it’s just a matter of minutes. After all, the smallest towns keep the biggest secrets.
“Nothing in this explosive 90 minutes play is as it seems...A real-life heart-in-the-mouth experience,” declares The Chicago Tribune.
“An astonishing new play. If you have observed the workings of a city council (or, for that matter, your condo board), it is a good bet you will recognize the play’s lunatic version of democracy at work, and then be confronted by something far more pernicious than garden variety graft, corruption, chicanery and the pursuit of trivial personal agendas.” - Chicago Sun Times
The Minutes is 90 minutes, with no intermission.
Recommended for audiences at least 14 years of age. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
