Director Thomas Kail, fresh from the Tony Award-winning musical “In the Heights,” demonstrates an equal affinity for the nuances and rhythms of this tightly focused family drama.
Kail’s two assignments – big Broadway musical, four-character play in a black box – are less disparate than they might sound. Both “In the Heights” and “Broke-ology” focus on what it means to grow up in a poor but cohesive community, to leave it and to return to those who stayed behind, and to find a balance between honoring family ties and honoring oneself.
