Lincoln Center Theater has yielded two Broadway productions this fall, its Tony-winning hit War Horse and the acclaimed Other Desert Cities at the Booth Theater. But Charles Isherwood, theater critic for The New York Times, has found a strong new LCT production Off Broadway: J.T. Rogers’s Blood and Gifts, a play commissioned by Lincoln Center Theater running now at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater.

Directed by Bartlett Sherr, Blood and Gifts is a painfully topical drama about the deep roots of the American involvement in Afghanistan.
