From The New Yorker:

The title of Lisa D'Amour's sharp, satisfying comedy "Detroit" (well directed by Anne Kauffman, at Playwrights Horizons) refers not to the city but to the state of collapse that it embodies.
I have one thing to say to that:

Luckily John Lahr, the reviewer, brings it home at the end: "The suburbs once personified the American dream. A dream, 'Detroit' seems to be saying, is something you may be forced to wake up from."
