4000 Miles

By Amy Herzog

Thompson Shelterhouse | Feb. 8 - March 9, 2014

Named "the best play of the season" by Time Magazine, 4000 Miles is a heartwarming exploration of growing up, growing old and discovering the moments in-between. It's the middle of the night when 21-year-old Leo shows up dazed and disheveled at his feisty 91-year-old grandmother's Greenwich Village apartment. While his arrival marks the end of a life-changing cross-country bike trip, Leo's journey is far from over. These unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder and ultimately connect as they find their way in the world.

"A funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama ... A heartening reminder that a keen focus on life's small moments can pay off in a big way onstage." – The New York Times

Advisory: 4000 Miles is recommended for adult and older teenage audiences. It is a lovely relationship play, but it does contain adult themes and strong adult language. Please contact the Box Office if you have questions or require additional information.

Running Time: The show runs approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes, including one intermission.
