Why See Linda Vista?


Don't Miss Tracey Letts' Darkly Comic Linda Vista

In partnership with the Center Theater Group, Second Stage presents the Steppenwolf Theatre production of Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning playwright Tracey Letts' brutally funny midlife crisis tragicomedy as part of their 2019/20 theater season. Fused with Letts' penchant for creating distinctive, flawed characters, potently witty dialogue and thought provoking psychological dynamics, his creations unravel before the audience's eyes in a whirlwind of episodic scenes that punctuate the trainwreck that is central character Wheeler's life. 

In the throes of the midlife crises to end all midlife crises, Wheeler is a fifty year old Caucasian male going through a divorce, having thrown in the towel on his marriage, his job and himself. Yet don't feel too sorry for him, because underneath it all he's really a smooth operator whose self-deprecation and hangdog appearance hides his cocky bravado and sense of likeable anti-charm. When he moves to the gated community of Linda Vista, San Diego, he finds himself in a love triangle with two very different women.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
