Critic's Choice!

Dianne Wiest is riveting in one of theatre’s most difficult roles. She handles it all with poise, precision and empathy. The merest shift of eyes or inflection of voice reveals unexpected layers. The Taper often echoed with laughter.

Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest in one of theatre's most extraordinary roles

Wiest (Hannah and Her Sisters, Bullets Over Broadway) plays Winnie in Samuel Beckett's masterpiece Happy Days. With her husband Willie (Michael Rudko) increasingly out of reach and the earth itself threatening to swallow her whole, Winnie's buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in this absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit. Wiest is both radiant and heartbreaking (The New York Times) in this extraordinary Yale Repertory Theatre production of Happy Days.

Dianne Wiest is enthralling. She’s warm, witty, wry. She has flawless comedic timing and a voice she plies like a musical instrument to make us listen to every note.

Critic's Pick

Beautiful! An affecting revival…Dianne Wiest is wonderful.
