In today’s Star-Ledger, theatre critic Peter Filichia is big on the Two River Theater Co.’s staging of ‘True West,’ the Sam Shepard classic that opened last week at the Bridge Avenue venue.

“There’s plenty of gas in the tank that director Robert M. Rechnitz has filled to the brim,” Filichia puns, after noting that the production features lots of burps from the two beer-guzzling leads.

Those characters, brothers named Austin and Lee, are played by Wayne Maugans and Rob Sedgwick, whom Filichia says are “accomplished” in the roles.

Speaking of the physicality of the play, in which the two men tussle vigorously, Filichia says, “Audiences looking for something atypical will be swept along by the sheer force.”

In case you missed it, writer Tom Chesek had a feature in Friday’s Asbury Park Press on the role of Shepard plays in the career of Rechnitz and of the theater he founded.

‘True West’ runs through March 25. Tickets are priced from $36 to $54.
