A seemingly mundane small-town city council meeting turns into a searing indictment of human greed, hypocrisy and venality in Tracy Letts’ new play The Minutes. The ensemble drama, acclaimed in its earlier run at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, reunites Letts with Anna D. Shapiro, director of his Tony- and Pulitzer-winning epic August: Osage County. The cast includes Tony winners Jessie Mueller, Blair Brown and Mr. Letts himself; Tony nominee Austin Pendleton; and movie favorite Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name). Get ready for surprises; “Nothing in this explosive 90-minute play is as it seems,” wrote the Chicago Tribune.
