Beginning this Thursday, Actors’ Theatre of Grand Rapids will be performing “4000 Miles” at Grand Rapids Community College’s Spectrum Theater. The shows will run until Oct. 4 and then Oct. 9-11. Curtain time for all shows is 8 p.m.
“4000 Miles” is a dramatic comedy by Amy Herzog set in New York City about a young man who finds an unlikely friendship with his feisty grandmother while living as roommates in her West Village apartment.
The New York Times describes the play as “a funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama.”
“4000 Miles” was Time Magazine’s number one play for 2012 and was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
This is the first debut of the play in West Michigan.
“It’s a wonderful story,” said Director Fred Sebulske. “It’s a beautifully written play. (The audience) will see themselves in the play. It reaches across the generations.”
Ticket prices for general admission range from $24-26, $10 for GRCC students, and $20 for other students.
