One of those actors who totally commanded the stage. Dracula, Betrayal, Design for living were performances that I will never forget. Yet NINE topped it all. Forty years later I remember him working his fanny off, enjoying himself,owing the stage, as I sat mesmerized from the last row of the 46th Street theater
I saw it Thursday night with my 24 year old son and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Was supposed to go on 3/30 and got sick. Our friends went on 3/30 and hated it. Said it was one of the worst things they have ever seen. I was expecting drek and was totally surprised and pleased. They must have fixed something in the last two weeks, because it got a standing ovation and there were no walkout (we were in the back of the orchestra in the corner)-so had a full view o
Went last night as well. Been going to the theater for over 50 years and I would say that this is a solid production of a well-structured mid-twentieth century play. Is it innovative? Not at all. I thought Annette Bening was the highlight, maybe because I like her film work and I did see her in Coastal Disturbances a few decades ago. Not a fan of the guy who played George and interesting seeing Michael Hayden who played Chris about 30 years ago, now play the doctor next door. Trac
Cy Coleman music, Wendy Wasserstein/Chris Durang book, David Zippel lyrics and Graciela Daniele direction and choreography come to the Two River Theater.Â This is a 95 minute love-letter to Broadway musicals and though it may not be top notch Coleman, it is certainly has well-done music and clever lyrics.Â Carolee Carmelo commands the stage as Aunt Louise, as does every one of the 15 member cast.Â Orchestra of 8 (wish it was more) makes for some lovely tune
Wow. Who knew? I am at point in my life, where I am looking to get rid of things and just spoke with my wife about cleaning out the Playbills that I have saved since 1969 (thousands). I definitely have the Dogfight Off-Broadway Playbill and I know I have Rent from Off-Broadway, Merrily We Roll Along (Original cast), plus so many more. Also, after my mother passed away, I took possession of her Playbills and have many Broadway Playbills from the 1960s and 1950s such as Original cas
Saw this last night. Glad I saw it, though definitely not a must see. Enjoyed much of the acting and the dialogue. Story did not have a lot to say and there was no real message. As most people know (this is not a spoiler), the same part is played by six actresses. Blair Brown was great and being an Orphan Black fan, enjoyed seeing Tatiana Maslany on stage. Two points to note: Cast of 18 with no doubling of roles, which is huge for a 90 minute play, si
Also saw this at George Street Playhouse. Thought it was fine; had some nice production values and though entertaining, certainly did not have a lot of depth. Great show for regional or Off-Broadway, yet with one set, four actors and a 90 minute running time, I believe there is no way that it is going to sell with Broadway prices and with these competent, though not STAR-like actors. That said, I wish them only the best!
Saw the show last night-Thursday, June 7th. If you like your Shakespeare served up, without gimmicks or pretense, Ruben Santiago-Hudson has mounted a sterling production of this play, (that has not graced The Delacorte since 1991). Could find quibbles here and there, yet the three hours whiz by and the production values are simple and elegant, and just top-notch. Corey Stoll gives a truly unforgettable performance as Iago, that when compared to the others (who are mostly all fabulous), he shi
Was there last night. Have not seen the play since 1976 when I saw it pre-Broadway at the Kennedy Center. That time I LOVED it! The acting is top-notch and there are moments of brilliance. That said, it is a slog; the first act is 85 minutes and feels like two hours. Thankfully the second act is closer to 45 minutes and is a lot better. Can only give a recommendation to true Tom Stoppardians.
Looks promising with the original Jerome Robbins choreography being presented. The theater has historically gotten strong NYC talent, just curious if there are any casting updates one may know about. Thanks.
Being an LCT member for 30+ years and having sat in most sections of the Beaumont, I can assure you that the difference in the stage perspective in the center section is completely different than the two side wings. The problem s that they charge the same for most of the orchestra seats, though I think they have added Premium seats for this show. In my opinion the two side sections (of the five sections in the theater) are NOT good seats and should be avoided if possible

Four of us saw it Saturday night. We all gave it a thumbs up. Collectively we have probably been going to the theater for 150 years. Brought out some interesting and relevant topics. My only complaint is the arc of a one act play ( which this is) is usually not as satisfying IMHO as a 2 or 3 act play. I think the 2 act play format worked brilliantly in Hangmen.
