Unit Set/Multiple Settings

"Perhaps the most complex new play I've seen this season is WORK SONG, a triptych of interlocking one acts by Eric Simonson and Jeffrey Hatcher about the life of the architect Frank Lloyd Wright…Its three parts, each with a different narrative strategy and tone, take the form of a conventional stage bio. One part presents an acid view of Wright in manipulative, pathetically regal celebrityhood at Taliesin, his monument to himself in rural Wisconsin, and the finale is an exquisite vignette about a visit by the ninety-year-old Wright to one of his first houses in Oak Park, Ill.…I hope it will be remounted soon and often." —NY Times. "As emotionally engrossing as Frank Lloyd Wright himself." —Variety. "Elegant…vigorous…breathtaking…" —Chicago Tribune.
