Eno Explores The Messy Beauty of Being Human

Second Stage's groundbreaking theater season continues with a brand new world premiere from celebrated American playwright Will Eno, whose riveting one man show 'Thom Pain (based on nothing)' placed as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2005. Hailed as a modern Samuel Beckett for his existential explorations into the dark heart of solipsism, Eno turns his pen to a happier, more-life affirming subject matter in The Underlying Chris.

With a knack for poetic writing, Eno delves into the concepts of identity, shared experiences, individuality and the many difficult yet preposterously beautiful things that happen when human beings interact. Celebrating humanity, its differences and the watershed moments that change lives in a split second, Eno seeks an antidote to the troubles of our divided times with a sense of awe and wonder.

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.
