Roundabout Theatre Company presents a new Broadway production of Sam Shepard's Tony & Pulitzer Prize-nominated drama True West, starring acclaimed screen and stage actors Ethan Hawke as “Lee” and Paul Dano as “Austin.”
Opposites attack in Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play about two brothers with more in common than they think. Holed up in their mother’s California house, screenwriter Austin (Dano) and lowlife Lee (Hawke) wrestle with big issues—and each other. Order vs. chaos. Art vs. commerce. Typewriter vs. toaster...Shepard’s rip-roaring classic returns to Broadway, gleefully detonating our misguided myths of family, identity and the American Dream.
