The Year of Magical Thinking

In this Broadway hit, audiences journey back over the year when Didion abruptly lost her husband, Hartford native John Dunne, and their beloved daughter Quintana Roo. Applying her fiercely logical brain to a situation that defied logic, Didion’s words lead us on a quiet exploration of that “magical year” when grief came to call and hope was around the corner.

“"Yes, death and grieving are at the center of “The Year of Magical Thinking,” but the play is also, unmistakably, an epic catalog of love, of happiness"” (New York Times)
