Truth becomes elusive and justice proves costly.
Lobby Hero, nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play, tells the story of Jeff, a luckless young security guard trying to get his life together after being thrown out of the Navy. But the lobby proves to be no sanctuary from the world, as Jeff is drawn into a local murder investigation involving his supervisor, a tightly wound young man called upon to bear witness against his troubled brother, and an overzealous and beautiful rookie policewoman who is in over her head with her unscrupulous hero-cop partner.
As the plot unfolds truth becomes elusive and justice proves costly, as the New York Times reviewer writes, “motives come in every shade but black and white in Lobby Hero.”
Jason Zinoman of the New York Times writes that Lobby Hero is “the best new American drama of the first decade of this century,” and calls it Lonergan’s “most searching, philosophical drama,” and that “Lobby Hero, a moving drama colored in shades of gray, is not formally daring, but in its tone and genre it defies easy description. It’s a comedy, a romance, and a play of ideas rolled into one. Low-key melancholy is intercut with sparks of hopeful wit. You may find your point of view toward the characters changing several times before the curtain.”
Staci Robbins returns to direct after Adobe Rose’s hit show Opus.
