The Realistic Joneses Summary

The Realistic Joneses is an inside look at the people who live next door, the truths we think we know about those neighbors and the secrets we never imagined we all might share.

Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, and Marisa Tomei star in this new play, hailed by The New York Times as "far and away the most stimulating, adventurous and flat-out good play to be produced on Broadway this year." The Realistic Joneses is written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Will Eno (Thom Pain (based on nothing), Middletown, The Open House) and directed by Sam Gold (Fun Home, Seminar).

Winner! Best Ensemble Cast - Drama Desk Award

“A pleasurable rush virtually unmatched by anything I’ve seen this season. Plays as funny and moving, as wonderful and weird as ‘The Realistic Joneses,’ do not appear often on Broadway. Or ever, really. Broadway has long been a place inhospitable to the truly active currents of contemporary theater, so the opening of Will Eno’s play at the Lyceum Theater is an occasion worth celebrating. Mr. Eno’s voice may be the most singular of his generation; it’s humane, literate and slyly hilarious.” - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“(****) Four stars! A marvel of infidelity, mortality and cosmic profundity! The powerhouse cast is excellent, playing the minimalistic music of the lines without losing warmth or individuality.” - David Cote, Time Out NY

“The marvelous, all-star cast savors every last syllable of this hypnotically quirky and witty play, snappily delivered by certifiable stars. Tracy Letts and Toni Collette are terribly funny, and Marisa Tomei and Michael C. Hall are perfect.” - Variety

“A sharp treat that movingly emphasizes the ultimate commonality of the human condition. Director Sam Gold and his excellent cast ensure that its humor and poignancy are equally served.” - USA Today

The Realistic Joneses In the News

My Lunch with Marisa Tomei: The Actress on ‘The Realistic Joneses,’ ‘Girls,’ and de Blasio’s NYC

Marisa Tomei discusses her excellent new Broadway play, The Realistic Joneses—playwright Will Eno’s singular meditation on the absurdity of mortality; like Sartre by way of David Brent.

Back Onstage, With Fewer Secrets

Michael C. Hall, who became a television star on Six Feet Under and Dexter, is back on Broadway in Will Eno’s The Realistic Joneses.

Will Eno: Mind the gaps – The Economist

The real dramas are not easily dramatised. They involve quiet feelings of disappointment or vague questions about what constitutes a meaningful life. These are the concerns, at once existential and banal, that drive the plays of Will Eno. The results are moving and rather funny.

Toni Collette On ‘The Realistic Joneses’ and Why She Shaved Her Head

Toni Collette plays Jennifer Jones, a woman whose laconic husband (Tracy Letts) has a rare terminal illness. When her new neighbors, also called the Joneses (played by Michael C. Hall and Marisa Tomei) show up, the four characters start interacting in all sorts of weird ways.

Tracy Letts Is Still Haunted by His Past

Tracy Letts opens up about The Realistic Joneses, a new play by Will Eno, co-starring Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall and Marisa Tomei. A meditation on marriage, illness, love and death, it still manages to be funny.
