Clyde’s – Second Stage
Click here for US tickets : $59
I’ve been longing to see this play by Lynn Nottage which has just opened on Broadway so I was delighted to note that it will be livestreamed.

I’m more than ready to believe that Clyde’s is, as promised, a stirring and funny new play from the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage, directed by Kate Whoriskey. A truck stop sandwich shop offers its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff a shot at redemption. Even as the shop’s callous owner, Clyde, tries to keep them under her thumb, the staff members are given purpose and permission to dream by their shared quest to create the perfect sandwich. I want a seat at the table for what promises to be a humorous, moving, and urgent play.

Unfortunately, though, it is only available in the US so, if you’re lucky enough to be there, the dates are Jan 4-16 and the price is a hefty $59.

    Wonderful recommendation. And for the risk-adverse theater lover, live streaming is a gift. Lynn Nottage is a terrific playwright. Two Pulitzer Prizes and more to come.
