Featured Reviews For The House of Blue Leaves


A Papal Visit Has Dreamers Dreaming - New York Times
As directed by David Cromer - and enacted by a talent-stuffed cast that includes Ben Stiller, Jennifer Jason Leigh and the remarkable Edie Falco - this production zooms in on every gritty grain of pain to be found in Guare's breakthrough work from 1966. Within the dimness, there is one luminous force. And that is Falco, whose varied, nuanced acting has long been familiar to television viewers in shows that include "The Sopranos" and "Nurse Jackie"...When the world is as dark as it is in this "House," your eyes naturally seek the light, whatever its source.

Stiller Sings in 'Leaves'; Arianda Steals 'Yesterday' - Bloomberg News
Stiller needs more time to get a purchase on the role. Jennifer Jason Leigh is archly convincing as Bunny, dressed a la Jackie Kennedy, in David Cromer's sensitive x-ray of a production. It's Edie Falco who will steal your heart as Bananas...Gaunt, stringy and practically translucent, she's so emotionally open that it may be all you can do to keep from running onstage to wraps your arms around her.
