'The Open House' Off Broadway Review: How Quickly Everything Changes

'The Open House' Off Broadway Review: How Quickly Everything Changes
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Go with an open mind to “The Open House” and see how quickly life can change. Situated entirely in a pleasant, conventionally furnished, suburban living room of today, “The Open House” begins with one group of people – a tetchy, vanilla-white American family -- and concludes, 80 minutes later, with all new characters.

To capsulize the themes of Will Eno’s latest play is risky business – the author is a deep thinker -- but it seems to me that his mordantly funny piece regards the transient nature of our existence today.
