"Six Degrees of Spectacular..." -Sarah Teach YI
"Six Degrees...engaging, believable...skillfully unveils...
believable performances from each and every one of cast members...
captivating rendition of Guare's award winning play - an apt tribute...!" - William Ferrall I&M
Winner of the 1993 Olivier Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the title refers to the statistical theory that any two people in the world can be connected through only six other people. Comic, fast-paced, affecting, and inspired by a true story, Guare's play upends cultural assumptions. After he is mugged, Paul, a young black man, disrupts the lives of a wealthy, white Manhattan couple. Paul's friendship with the couples' children, his charisma and celebrity connections make him the perfect surprise guest. A closer look reveals that no one could have guessed who's coming to dinner.
