Featured Reviews For The Front Page


Review: Nathan Lane saves ‘The Front Page’ from fish wrap - Associated Press
It's not really quick or savvy enough to keep up with the times, but once in a while it's sort of fun to hang with at a bar, listening to its lewd, alcohol-inspired stories. Sure, ultimately it smells a little off and it's hopelessly old-fashioned, like a weird uncle who shows up on holidays.

Nathan Lane’s The News In Scott Rudin’s Star-Packed ‘Front Page’ Revival - Deadline
With his jauntily angled fedora and suit jacket slung over his shoulder, Slattery comes across as more of a Rat Pack swinger than a flapper-following flirt just before the Jazz Age was snuffed out by Black Monday. But it suits him and he's an instant bright spot among the malcontents who've been forced into a long night awaiting the 7 AM hanging of Earl Williams, an illiterate white man who has been convicted of killing a black cop. Hildy's plans inspire caustic merriment among his pals, who insist it won't be long until he "has seven kids, a mortgage and belongs to a country club." There's also much ribbing of New York newspapers, especially the New York Times ("might as well work for a bank," one says), inside jokes from two authors who knew newspapers, Chicago and its Second City neuroses better than anyone.
