The Happy Buzz Surrounding 'Sons of the Prophet's' Human Suffering
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
It’s early in the new theater season in New York, but Charles Isherwood, theater critic for The New York Times, has found a standout and it isn’t on Broadway but Off. “Sons of the Prophet” at the Roundabout Theater Company’s Laura Pels Theater is a play about suffering that Isherwood says is also explosively funny.
Written by the young playwright Stephen Karam and directed by Peter DuBois, it’s the show that’s creating the most happy buzz in the theater world right now.
