THE REVIEWS ARE IN!

"Annette Miller Rocks at Shakespeare & Company." "Loaded with charm and insight..."
Ed Siegel, WBUR

A Wise and knowing 4000 Miles opens at Shakespeare & Company." —The Berkshire Eagle

"4000 Miles is a delight from start to finish —it is a funny, moving production with performances that are not to be missed." BroadwayWorld

"4000 Miles is charming, insightful, and moving...a perfect cast and design team." —ArtsFuse

"A master class in acting..." —Albany Times Union

When this play first came out in 2012, Time Magazine said "4000 Miles is the family drama that really sticks with you, easily the best play of the season."

John Shand wrote in his review in the Sydney Morning Herald: "If your heart is sick or just needs warming, go and see this play. If you are a baby boomer who doesn't understand your grandchildren or are from Gen Y and, like, really weirded out by your grandparents, go and see this play. If you simply love theatre, go and see this play."

In this Obie Award-winning and beautifully crafted piece, Amy Herzog gives us Vera and Leo, a grandmother and grandson, locked in a moving and most amusing battle of wits. Life has dealt them a series of shocks, and yet, they and two intrepid young women continue to seek meaning through human contact in a touching and humorous portrait of the disenfranchised.

The acclaimed comic drama about growing up, growing old—and discovering the moments in between. Pulitzer Prize finalist and Winner of the 2012 Obie Award for Best New Play.

Generously sponsored by Jerry and Honie Berko.
