Leo didn't intend to end up at his grandmother Vera's apartment in Manhattans West Village, and she certainly wasn't expecting him -- especially not in the middle of the night. But at 91, she's learned a great deal about life, and she can tell something is wrong with her grandson. Something terrible happened during his cross-country bicycle journey, that's for certain. Vera doesn't mind his company; things have been awfully quiet in her life since her husband passed away. Leo's sudden appearance might turn out to be just what both of them need at this point in their lives. Amy Herzog's intimate play 4000 Miles is about the distance between age 21 and age 91, and how small it really is. The New Jewish Theatre closes its season with 4000 Miles. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (May 11 to 28) in the Wool Studio at the Jewish Community Center (2 Millstone Campus Drive, Creve Coeur; www.newjewishtheatre.org). Tickets are $39.50 to $43.50.
