“4000 Miles" at the Asolo Rep Theater, Sarasota, FL
Called by TIME magazine “The best play of 2012, hands down,” this funny and moving masterpiece looks at how two outsiders find their way in the world today. 21 year-old Leo has just bicycled from Seattle to the West Village apartment of his grandmother, Vera. When his overnight sleepover turns into an extended stay, Vera’s surprising political views collide with Leo’s carefree hippie lifestyle and the two become a veritable odd couple. Slowly, Leo begins to reveal the mysterious events of his journey and the two discover the narrow line between growing up and growing old.
