I've seen this play a few times now (who hasn't?), but I always forget just how brilliant it is at capturing the very essence of life. The humor, the pain, the delight, the difficulties, all with very simple and almost matter of fact language that cuts right to the truth of the matter. If you've never seen Our Town or have seen it a dozen times, it's still worth a visit to this lovely depiction of Grover's Corners.
Our Town continues through September 29 (click here for info and tickets).
