7 Reasons to See Middletown This Weekend

  1. The local critics loves the show:
    Real People People Inhabit “Middletown” at Third Rail Rep
    On the mysteries of the universe.
    Meandering through ‘Middletown’ and life
  2. It’s funny as hell and you will laugh your ass off.
  3. It’s better than getting a catalog.

    Yeah. You get the mail, it’s a clothes catalog. Maybe you leaf through it, maybe think, ‘Hey, I could buy those pants.’ Then you think, ‘But then it’d just be me in a different pair of pants.’ Then you go out and walk around, and that’s your day, time for bed.Will Eno, Middletown

  4. It’s sad and tender and you will be moved.
  5. It stars core company members of Third Rail Rep, so you know it’s gotta be good.
  6. It’s all about humanity and being human, so you can relate. (You are human, right?)
  7. It’s the last weekend of the run, and you’ll be so sad if you miss this show.
