The Meaning of Almost Everything
a World Premiere by Jeff Daniels
January 10, 2013 - March 9, 2013
Step right up folks and grab a seat for the hilarious and sometimes painful circus that is life! Two men will astound you with their feats of daring and sometimes cowardice as they pratfall their way to the big answers in The Meaning of Almost of Everything. A world premiere comedy by PRTC founder Jeff Daniels, this show questions the nature of our world and the absurdity of it all! Contains adult content. Please note: a strobe light and water-based haze will be used during the performance.
Directed by Guy Sanville
- Matt Gwynn
- Michael Brian Ogden
"Indeed, the two actors carry the show with admirable fearlessness, approaching shoe-huffing and philosophical conundrums with equal gusto. Ogden peppers Gwynn with probing questions, comically conveys frustration, and fulfills his role’s physical demands with sure-handed skill; and Gwynn, as the man who must ultimately make this wrenching choice, is both hilarious and endearing, sometimes in the same moment." - Jenn McKee, AnnArbor.com
"We love Jeff Daniels’ comedies. But we didn’t know he had this one in him. It’s something more. We’re not sure we could define exactly what, but we’re sure you should see it, think about it, and enjoy it." - Patty Nolan, Examiner.com
"...the clever, sometimes rapid-fire dialogue delivered by the actors with incredible precision and physicalization is completely mesmerizing." - Ann Holt, MLive.com
"Every step, every gesture in this energetic romp contributes to the whole; there's nothing extra." - John Quinn, EncoreMichigan.com
