It’s the middle of the night. Leo (Gabriel Ebert) has just arrived on the doorstep of the West Village apartment where his feisty grandmother Vera (Mary Louise Wilson) lives. He’s been traveling on a bike for months, and now he’s looking for a place to hunker down. Their evolving relationship, spanning a 70-year age gap, is at the heart of 4000 Miles.
The world premiere of this play, by Amy Herzog (After the Revolution), directed by Daniel Aukin ([SIC]), was presented under the auspices of Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3 program last summer. Now this critically acclaimed new play moves uptown to the Mitzi E. Newhouse with the original cast and creative team.
