Rate this:
"In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, the tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks of three underpaid employees play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world. This comedy, by one of the United States' most-produced and highly regarded young playwrights, premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in winter of 2013, directed by Sam Gold. The Flick was awarded the coveted 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama."--Publisher information.

This play is so fun to read - the dialog moves so fast and the characters are so vivid - that it's like reading a short novel. The stage directions/action are minimal and don't distract. I read about this play in The New Yorker when it was being performed Off-Broadway and was sad not to be able to see it - reading this is the next best thing until a theater company performs it here!
