Speed-the-Plows Broadway run is the most recent triumph of the Pulitzer Prize-winning authors astonishingly productive career. By turns hilarious and chilling....the culmination of this playwrights work to date....Riveting theater.-Frank Rich, New York Times; A brilliant black comedy, a dazzling dissection of Hollywood cupidity and another tone poem by our foremost master of the language of moral epilepsy... On its deepest level it belongs with the darker disclosures of movie-biz pathology like Nathanael Wests The Day of the Locust and F. Scott Fitzgeralds The Last Tycoon. In a sense Speed-the-Plow distills all of these to a stark quintessence: theres hardly a line in it that isnt somehow insanely funny or scarily insane... [It is a] scathingly comic play.-Jack Kroll, Newsweek
