A play can be less than a great dramatic work and still provide the material for vivid theater. So it is Lanford Wilson's “Burn This,” a 1987 drama that invites
an audience to dive headlong into a world of raw emotion, insoluble
grief and explosive passion. The characters are a cock-eyed quartet of
downtown New Yorkers: A dancer/choreographer who feels, a gay
advertising executive who quips, a wealthy screenwriter who waffles and a
volatile restaurant manager who rages.
