In this 2015 play, first produced off-Broadway, playwright Joshua Harmon gives us a fascinating, complex comic hero, Jordan, a guy who at times comes off like a standard-issued lovable nebbish but at other times is so willfully blind and self-absorbed we want to give him a good hard pinch. That Alex Weisman is able to play all sides of Jordan, the comic and the tragic, as he slowly, painfully, but finally grows up, speaks volumes about his skills as an actor, and about the solidity of the cast director Keira Fromm has surrounded him with—there's not a misstep or misplayed moment in the whole glorious production. Amanda Drinkall, in particular, kills us softly as the BFF who finds she must break free from the intensely needy Jordan to live her own life. —Jack Helbig
