2.5 Minute Ride

" "Through June 23/HARTFORD – Hartford Stage. Illuminating at every turn, approximately 75 minutes with no intermission. Lisa is making a video about her dad. She’s capturing the big and small moments: from the annual amusement park family vacations to the father-daughter journey to Auschwitz, where his parents were killed — and everything in between. Step on this rollercoaster ride of high hilarity and deep disquiet as one woman tries to make sense of it all. From Tony Award-winning playwright Lisa Kron (Fun Home) comes a surprising tragicomedy about coming to terms with where — and who — you come from.
