4000 Miles

This regional premiere by celebrated new playwright Amy Herzog is an acclaimed comic drama that tells the story of Leo, a 21-year-old tree hugger from Seattle who unexpectedly arrives at the Manhattan apartment of his feisty 91-year-old grandmother, Vera, as he finishes a cross-country bike trip. Over the course of their reconnection, we discover their conflicting politics and the fragile connection they share between growing up and growing old. When Leo's ex-girlfriend shows up, the unusual events of his journey begin to unfold. Winner of two 2012 Obie Awards, including Best New American Play, 4000 Miles was also named TIME magazine's #1 Play or Musical of 2012.

Show runs from 7/25 to 8/3. Visit for full schedule.
