Love-Lies-Bleeding Blooms at Kennedy Center Tonight
Tonight marks the opening for Chicago-based Steppenwolf Theatre's Love-Lies-Bleeding at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' Terrace Theater. On the surface, the play -- produced with the assistance of the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays -- is an examination of euthanasia, but at its heart is the question of when life begins and ends.
I've had the opportunity to take in the production, both in Chicago and Washington, and will be reporting on the critical reviews of Don DeLillo's play in the next couple days. In the meantime, no matter which side of the issue you may fall, I'd encourage anyone living in DC to see this important drama. But you'd better hurry. Performances only run through June 25.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
