With respect to trainerLaura, she is incredibly off base with her review. Smokefall is filled with beautifuly truthful, complex performances, and pitch-perfect directing of a script that is whimsical but deeply real and human. From the stunning set to Mike Nussbaum doing a revelatory turn at 90 years old, Smokefall is a new and important play to theatre today.

Awesome set.  Actors are terrific but this play seems like a Cliff note. "Quirky" details are arbitrary.  Dialogue is filled with cliches or summaries of abstractions.  Are the characters meant to be archetypes?  So much was generalized.
