By Paula Vogel
Directed by Elaine Vaan Hogue
Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for the 2022 Tony Award for Best Revival, How I Learned To Drive puts us behind the wheel of a ‘56 Chevy with our protagonist, Li’l Bit, as she looks back on her rocky journey from adolescence to adulthood. Fasten your seatbelts as she navigates dark family secrets, teenage growing pains, and her turbulent relationship with her Uncle Peck.
Named “One of the Top 25 American Plays Since Angels in America” by The New York Times, How I Learned To Drive traverses the full range of human emotions – from hilarity to heartbreak. Vogel’s examination of the highway towards womanhood has only taken on more urgency and meaning since it was first staged.
