OTRATTW is from the early, obscure, playwright-in-the-making part of his career. A straightforward story of the pros and cons of fiercely close family, it premièred in the Bronx in 1994 and very sensibly made its bones in the Italian-American community before winning the hearts of a nation.
The script also has a lovely message to think about: Maybe as each American generation tries to make life easier and more prosperous for the next, we’re also giving our descendants a pack of new complications to worry about. Maybe we should pause to appreciate time-honored traditions and simple pleasures.
