Featured Reviews For Burn This


‘Burn This’: Adam Driver & Keri Russell’s Big Broadway Blow-Up - Daily Beast
As the play ended, this critic thought about another-sadly invisible-play about desire, grief, need, and sexuality standing somewhere off in the shadows, while center stage Burn This stood shakily on its feet, bursting with energy and completely out of time.

BURN THIS: KERI RUSSELL AND ADAM DRIVER LACK SIZZLE - New York Stage Review
Despite what the promos for this revival would have you believe, the actors playing Pale and Anna don't necessarily require house-on-fire chemistry. Wilson didn't write a smoldering love story. He wrote a romantic comedy-and what they need is a burning need for each other. They both have massive holes in their lives thanks to Robbie's death. They're broken. (At one point, Anna even likens Pale to a bird with a broken wing.) Think Frankie and Johnny. Actually, it's fitting that Terrence McNally wrote a program note for this production; the unlikely lovers in his Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, which also premiered off-Broadway in 1987, are cut from the same cloth as Anna and Pale. This "love shit"-as Wilson once described the crux of Burn This-is tricky business.

The phrase 'toxic masculinity' wasn't exactly in the vernacular in 1987, when Circle Rep's buzz-producing run of Lanford Wilson's Burn This moved uptown to Broadway. So perhaps coked-up, homophobic, violently aggressive, possessive bullies were considered sexier than they are now.
