Called “the most exciting individual in American theater” by Newsweek magazine, Anna Deavere Smith (“Fires in the Mirror,” “Twilight: Los Angeles”) explores the power of the body, the price of health and the resilience of the spirit. Based on interviews with an eclectic range of people, from a heavyweight boxer to a supermodel, and from Texas Governor Ann Richards to legendary cyclist Lance Armstrong, “Let Me Down Easy” “is a totally vital piece of theater, mixing a standup comic’s instincts with a great reporter’s keen eye” (“Variety”).
