Wow. The True is phenomenal. Thankfully, it just extended its run until October 28 at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Edie Falco is a force of nature. She dominated every single scene and never left the stage. It was her play, her stage, and her moment. She was not performing with the other actors. They were performing with her. What a cast. In addition to Edie Falco, Michael McKean, Peter Scolari, John Pankow, Austin Cauldwell, Glenn Fitzgerald, and Tracy Shayne also share the stage. Each cast member is on their A-game to go toe to toe with Edie Falco. The set design was fascinating. By keeping the foreground the same and seamlessly swapping the background, We were transported to different homes and environments. I found it deeply symbolic of the play. On the surface things remained the same, but in reality, it had all changed.
