TCTB Review Roundup: Familiar at the Guthrie Theater

The Guthrie Theater recently opened a fantastic production written by Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, Black Panther) about the importance of knowing your heritage and themes of what it means to be family. This hilarious comedy runs through April 14. Check out what our reviewers had to say about it.
Compendium - Minneapolis: "Gurira is an awe-inspiring writer, and the all-around excellence of Familiar is a testament to her sharp wit and a wisdom beyond her years."
Play off the Page: "The tender moments between them melt your heart. The humorous moments between them leave you clutching your sides and hiding your face!"
Coffee Talk with Brett: "The cast is marvelous, and I truly mean that in every sense of the word."
Cherry and Spoon: "As the title implies, it's about families, one specific Zimbabwean-Minnesotan family in particular, that will feel familiar to anyone with a family."
