About this show

Let Me Down Easy examines the body and the body politic, as only Anna Deavere Smith can. Called "the most exciting individual in American theater" by Newsweek, Smith conducted 320 interviews on three continents to create this show - and now she paints indelible portraits of more than 20 unforgettable individuals. Using her unique performance style, she introduces you to a rodeo rider, a prize fighter, and an altruistic doctor - as well as legendary cyclist Lance Armstrong, supermodel Lauren Hutton, and former Texas Governor Ann Richards. Together, their voices tell a stunning story about the vulnerability of the human body, the resilience of the spirit, and the price of care. Don't miss the latest work from this unparalleled performer.
