In Relatively Speaking, four-time Oscar winner Ethan Coen and two-time Oscar nominee Elaine May join with Woody Allen for a one-of-a-kind Broadway experience directed by John Turturro. Julie Kavner, Steve Guttenberg, Mark Linn-Baker and Marlo Thomas head a cast of 16 in this hilarious evening of one-act plays that explore the often outrageous reality of relatives (each one-act play springs from a different branch of the family tree).

Families are complicated, and there’s a deep ocean of theatrical works that illustrate this point. We can add another hefty addition to that list with Relatively Speaking, a collection of three one-act comedies by Ethan Coen, Elaine May, and Woody Allen that examine the effects of familial kookiness in three different ways. “Talking Cure,” “George Is Dead,” and “Honeymoon Motel” feature a cornucopia of Oh yeah, that guy actors from TV and film, such as Marlo Thomas (That Girl), Steve Guttenberg (Three Men and a Baby), Grant Shaud (Murphy Brown), and Julie Kavner (The Simpsons). The three plays all maintain differing tones, but surely will feature someone that resembles a member of your own clan.
