Quotes & Awards

  • “Best American drama of the past decade.”

    USA Today

  • “Sensationally entertaining…Tracy Letts’ fiercely funny, turbo-charged tragicomedy is, flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years.”

    New York Times

  • “A tremendous achievement in American playwriting: a tragicomic populist portrait of a tough land and a tougher people.”

    Time Out New York

  • “Tracy Letts’ August: Osage County is what O’Neill would be writing in 2007. Letts has recaptured the nobility of American drama’s mid-century heyday while still creating something entirely original.”

    New York magazine

  • “Drawing from the original 2008 Tony Award-winning cast—including Deanna Dunagan (Best Leading Actress), Jeff Perry (from TV’s Scandal), and Steppenwolf Theatre favorite Rondi Reed—this live-performance audio adaptation combines the intensity of Tennessee Williams with the pace and timing of the best in television comedy. The audience laughter is real and heartfelt as the cast members find the humor and nuance in every taboo subject—from drugs to adultery to divorce. Outrageously funny, foul (adult language), and touching.”


  • Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play
  • A Pulitzer Prize–winning play
