"A glorious and funny new play. Ms. Kron may well be the best stand-up memoirist of the American theatre. She has an inspired gift for spinning depths of personal mortification into high-flying comedy." — The New York Times
"Hilarious, delightful, and joyously alive!" — Associated Press
"Wise and funny and utterly winning! WELL written, WELL staged, WELL acted. A truly beautiful play in many ways." — The Newark-Star Ledger
"With rare wit and intelligence, Well conveys a whole universe of tender, messy, mother-daughter attachments." — Variety

"This play is not about my mother and me. We are in my parent's house and that is my mother there, sleeping that La-Z Boy recliner – which is where she spends most of her time because she doesn't feel well enough to get up and do other things – but, this is not about her; or about me and her." — Lisa Kron, from Well.

Poor Lisa Kron. All she wants to do is put on a nice, orderly little play about her family, growing up, and how she got cured of her allergies. But her mother, who's watching the play from her living room just...over there, keeps interrupting, offering snacks to the audience, telling her own versions of Lisa's carefully constructed memories, and causing chaos with the increasingly bagffled cast.

A play for anyone who's ever had a mother, Well is Lisa Kron's hilarious, touching, and utterly original autobiographical comedy about mothers and daughters, mind and body, social activism, and the theatre itself. The critics' darling of the 2006 Broadway season, Well features Lisa Kron recreating her Tony Award-nominated role for Huntington audiences, and also stars Emmy award winner Mary Pat Gleason as Ann Kron.
