Fifty-year-old Wheeler is moving into his own apartment after a nasty divorce. With a blend of humor and humanity, Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Tracy Letts demonstrates the ultimate midlife crisis: the bewildering search for self-discovery once you’ve already grown up.
“Tracy Letts is a profusely gifted playwright. In Linda Vista the writing is so zingy and the playwright’s voice so sharp…Some of his most compassionate writing. "- David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"One of the most-intriguing, multifaceted and divisive characters to grace the stage in a long while. "- Los Angeles Daily News
“Lovely, funny, and sad…For all its easygoing pace and humor, Linda Vista goes to some truly dark places. "- Bilge Ebiri, Vulture
"Letts is a master of pitch-dark comedies that measure the grisliest depths of human behavior…Linda Vista is very funny, equally unsettling…An inspired, ruthless take on the classic midlife-crisis comedy. "- Ben Brantley, New York Times
"Linda Vista is that rarity of rarities, a long comedy that feels shorter—so much shorter, in fact, that you wouldn't willingly part with a word. "- Wall Street Journal
“Linda Vista is such a strong, warmly human, and emotionally satisfying comedy of crotchety manners…The dialogue is razor sharp…Altogether lovely, when you stop to wipe your tears from all those howls of laughter. ”- Steven Suskin, New York Stage Review
"Funny, edgy, smart. "- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
