Lately, with news of plant closures, putative collapse, and promise bailout, the auto industry’s seemed unusually dramatic. And in Dan LeFranc’s Sixty Miles to Silver Lake, a car is the occasion for and engine of the drama. On a hot weekend afternoon, teen Denny and divorced Dad Ky sit trapped in a four-door, forced to chat with one another. A production of Soho Rep, in partnership with P73, Sixty Miles to Silver Lake likely won’t pack the ballistic punch of their last show Blasted, but with director Anne Kaufman at the wheel and actors Joseph Adams and Dane DeHaan along for the ride, we expect excellent performance. Antilock breaks and a sunroof, those’d be nice, too.
Tuesdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 3 p.m. Starts: Jan. 15. Continues through Feb. 8, 2009
