I saw 3C when it was in New York and thought it was terrific. It had some legal problems with the owners of Three's Company and I didn't think it would get any regional revivals. I'd recommend seeing it if you can.

DISGRACED is the best play on Broadway right now, but I haven't seen THE REAL THING yet.

I think Cuba Gooding Jr. is actually a fairly good actor who has admittedly done some terrible work. I thought he was great in MACHETE KILLS and perfectly fine in THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL.
Also, I thought Sean Combs was pretty good in MONSTER'S BALL.

I agree with others that it was too long--and I sometimes have problems with Churchill--but I thought it was a decent show. Definitely could have cut, say, the rock throwing skit.
"Often, these scenes are virtuosic performances of minimalism; in fewer than two minutes, Ms. Churchill has us invested in characters that another writer could use to build an entire play.

I would go with A DOLL'S HOUSE at BAM if that gets extended again. Terrific production.

I understand what you mean, but I quoted something he said in an interview to make a point about the experience of his performance--if he thought Lear didn't understand love but still managed to move me, I wouldn't really care.
And you're right, Isabella Laughland was pretty weak; there was no particular reason I didn't mention it.

I love Frank Langella and think he is a terrific actor, so yes, I would suspect it has something to do with the direction.
"I fully expected to love Frank Langella’s King Lear. After all, aging movie stars may be even better candidates for the role than those versed in Shakespeare. Saturated for decades in shallow adulation, applauded for their every move, they have far more to fear in losing what Mr. Langella calls our 'metaphorical crown[s],' the 'props we all use to justify our existence.' Moreover, with his powerful gravitas, his Nixon jowls, and his cue ball head sparsely

Gotta disagree. There are few actors I love as much as Dustin Hoffman, but he was an awful Willy Loman. Though I haven't seen it, I suspect the Lee J. Cobb is the best.

Yeah, when I saw it there was about a 20 minute delay after the intermission. Wouldn't be surprised if someone was injured. But you should really try and see it if you have the chance. It was worth the wait.
