Lisa Kron invites her audience on a roller coaster ride through the Kron family album in 2.5 Minute Ride. Rising and falling between high hilarity and deep disquiet, Kron demonstrates with disarming simplicity that humor and horror can share the same human moment. Kron's' performance switches back and forth between her journey to Auschwitz with her septuagenarian father, a Holocaust survivor; her Michigan family's annual pilgrimage to a Sandusky, Ohio amusement park; and her brother's marriage to his Internet bride. By moving seamlessly between these three diverse recountings, Kron creates a complex, and at times a startling meditation on how human beings make sense of tragedy, grief, and everyday life. Featuring original music by Dan Fleet.
