About Lobby Hero
Lobby Hero is a play by Kenneth Lonergan that premiered Off-Broadway in 2001 to great success. It was then revived in 2018 on Broadway starring Michael Cera and Chris Evans. This iteration of the play received several nominations included Tony Awards, Drama Desk Awards, and Drama League Awards. 

The show follows a security guard in his late twenties, his strict supervisor, and an overbearing cop and his rookie female partner. The show is set in a foyer of a middle-income Manhattan apartment building in the middle of the night. It is a highly entertaining and powerful piece.
