How do you want to finish up your life -- go out quiet or with a bang? This is the big question that The Velocity of Autumn brings to New York’s Booth Theatre. Alexandra is a 79-year-old artist -- with enough wit and passion to set off a firestorm -- that’s hunkered down in a battle with her family about how she’s going to spend the last years of her life. But she’s not going down without a fight as she’s barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to level most of her neighborhood. To help their cause, Alexandra’s kids send in a ringer: her son Chris, who’s been out of her life for two decades. What comes next in this Broadway play is deliciously wicked and touching look at just how fragile and ferocious life can be. So will Alexandra stay put or is she off to greener pastures?
