O Beautiful by Theresa Rebeck
This fiercely funny story explores the lives of high school students, teachers,
and their families as they cope in a world of real personal problems and
extremist ideological rhetoric that gets so heated that Jesus, Saint Paul, Joan
of Arc, John Adams, Patrick Henry, and Benjamin Franklin, among others,
show up to weigh in and mix it up. Alternately sweet and fiery, and as
topical as tonight’s newscast, O Beautiful lands the complex realities of our
culture squarely on the stage deck.
