Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck joins Tom each Thursday with her reviews of the region's theatrical offerings.  Today, she talks about Everything Is Wonderfula powerful drama set in Amish country about a man, and a family, in crisis. 

The play by Chelsea Marcantel, which world-premiered at the Contemporary Theater Festival in West Virgina in 2017, is getting a new production at Baltimore's Everyman Theatre.

Directed by Noah Himmelstein, the play stars Everyman Theatre Resident Company actors Deborah Hazlett (Esther) and Bruce Randolph Nelson (Jacob), and features Tony Nam (Eric),  Alex Spieth (Miri), Hannah Kelly (Ruth), and Steve Polites (Abram).

Everything Is Wonderful continues at Everyman Theater through Sunday, February 24.

Prior to that, she was the theater critic of The Baltimore Sun, where she reviewed more than 3,000 plays over the course of 23 years.
