Off Broadway: Sept. 28, 2012
Reviews of the latest off Broadway plays, including ''The Exonerated'' and ''Detroit''
The 10th-anniversary production of this stark play about death-row inmates cleared by DNA evidence feels dated but still packs an emotional wallop, thanks to a rotating cast including Brooke Shields and Stockard Channing. (cultureproject.org) B —Tanner Stransky
Amy Ryan and David Schwimmer (below) play a hapless couple in Lisa D’Amour’s Pulitzer Prize finalist, which starts as a gentle joke about overeager, underachieving suburbanites and builds into a sly teardown of the self- actualization-obsessed culture that created them.
