Review: The Minutes (Steppenwolf Theatre)

When Tracy Letts' newest play, The Minutes, is good, it’s very, very good, and that’s the case for the play’s first 90-95 minutes. As a small-town transplant myself, I can verify the hilarious and almost heartbreaking accuracy of the drama within a small town's city council. Despite an out-of-place ending, Steppenwolf has a hit on their hands. Recommended. (review by Lauren Whalen)
