I had only seen Charlie Cox in "Theory of Everything". His performance in "Incognito"...dear God that man is talented. I mean gorgeous too, but he is an amazing, amazing actor. His physicality when delineating the many people he plays!! When Geneva Carr is the only the third best actor in a four actor piece you can tell the caliber you are dealing with. The play is moving in the same way Payne took a scientific approach to love in "Constellati

Evan's book is the strong point, the score is merely better-than-most. The adaptation and music and lyrics for Great Comet are extraordinary.

I agree with you halfways... she is not a great dramaturgical director, but she is a fantastic stage picture and through line director. And a good actor's director it seems.

I thought it was just terrific. The music in especial. However, the storytelling is a little diffuse.But I"m not sure good narrative structure is the point. It's seems to be set in a New Orleans version of ancient Greece, using the Orpheus and Eurydice myth. They sometimes play the story traditionally, sometimes they use the Gods and mythological worlds as metaphor. Rachel Chavkin does a wonderful job directing 5/6 thrust (the other 6th is taken up by the absolutely

She was merely okay in Carrie, but was a horrible Dot in Chicago Shake's "Sunday in the Park" (her Marie was mildly better). So I was quite surprised how good she was in "Bright Star".

Once again, Songanddanceman's inflated opinions are supported by supposition. At least he isn't all and out lying to back up his opinions this time. Or is he.....? He is so ridiculous.

Sheridan was wonderful, though not quite full throated enough to be a completely satisfying Fanny. But this Michael Mayer production looks, at times, like a very good amateur production. It would never fly here.

The cast of "In the Heights" in the West End is pretty terrific. I'm sure there are numerous members of that cast who will be looked at.

They said there is even a sign at the Public notifying audiences that the sound level is "conversational." My hearing is good, but I'm wondering if I should get the listening device? I'll be sitting in Row D.
I had no problem.

I enjoyed Michelle in Cabaret...but her Una is excruciatingly annoying. I was actually mad at her, I thought her performance was making me side with Daniels' character, so I didn't get to see the play the way the author wanted me to. Man, I hated her...

jasonbrody said: "I got in by myself to the first preview show last night. Incredible. Van Hove lived up to my expectations, which have been considerably built up since I saw A View from the Bridge in January. The production is naturalistic and Brechtian at the same time – it lays the text bare in a way I’ve never encountered before and illuminates corners of it that I’d never considered and never noticed. I have some questions about the set

Michelle Williams is giving one of the worst professional performances on a stage that I've seen in a long time. And I really enjoyed her in Cabaret.
Jeff Daniels, however, is SOOO fine in the role. Absolutely terrific. Especially playing against whatever it is that Michelle, poor thing, is doing.
