Commentaire:   


Presse: "The marvelous young actor Ben Platt is giving a performance that’s not likely to be bettered on Broadway this season. What’s more, this gorgeous heartbreaker of a musical...has grown in emotional potency during its journey to the big leagues, after first being produced in Washington and Off Broadway. Rarely – scratch that — never have I heard so many stifled sobs and sniffles in the theater." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"'Dear Evan Hansen' takes its title from letters Evan writes himself as therapy. The show's so satisyfing it deserves a thank you note." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Simply put: Platt is giving one of the greatest leading male performances I’ve ever seen in a musical, and the thrillingly modern and moving Dear Evan Hansen is worthy of it." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Then, there’s Platt in a class all to himself, with the impeccable instincts of both a comedian and tragedian while singing his heart and guts out. An incomparable performance that ranks among the finest in years. 'Dear Evan Hansen' may be the story of a nerdy teenager, but it’s that rare show that connects and enlightens all of us." Roma Torre for NY1

"The show was already impressive in its lauded off-Broadway premiere at Second Stage Theatre earlier this year, directed with as much vitality as sensitivity by Michael Greif. But the characterizations now seem even more fully lived-in and the connective tissue among the ensemble — whether playing biological or adoptive family, young lovers or high school acquaintances thrust into an uneasy friendship of convenience — has genuine sparks." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Through the alchemy of Michael Greif, who directed the original productions at Arena Stage and at Second Stage, Broadway’s Music Box Theater proves a perfect fit for this sensitive musical starring a sensational Ben Platt as a neurotic misfit trying to survive senior year in high school. As for the music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul: Not since “Next to Normal” has a score tapped so deeply into the troubled psyche of its needy protagonist." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaire: Six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald makes her Broadway return in this behind-the-scenes peek into one of the most important musicals of all time. Shuffle Along, or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed examines the turbulent drama that surrounded the staging of 1921's Shuffle Along, an all-black cast musical that was instrumental in breaking down racial barriers on The Great White Way.

McDonald last trod New York's boards in 2014's Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, the critically adored Billie Holiday play that bagged the singer her sixth Tony. Her previous wins were for Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin' in the Sun and Porgy and Bess. Also among the all star cast are Tony winners Billy Porter (Kinky Boots) and Brian Stokes Mitchell (Kiss Me, Kate)  (plus)

Commentaire:   


Presse: "To sign, or not to sign. That is the question that hangs so urgently over the wavering title character of 'King Charles III,' Mike Bartlett’s flat-out brilliant portrait of a monarchy in crisis, which blazed open on Sunday night at the Music Box Theater." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Director Rupert Goold’s tight and zestily acted staging provides the play a royal showcase." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Galvanizing and astonishing, 'King Charles III' doesn’t just send you back to Shakespeare’s histories; it makes you want to write one." David Cote for Time Out New York

"Playwright Mike Bartlett's vibrant and thrilling 'King Charles III' opened Sunday at the Music Box Theatre, borrowing much of The Bard's style and symbols but looking to the near future. It crackles with intrigue and ideas." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"King Charles III is written largely in blank verse, which might sound like a cumbersome affectation. But in Rupert Goold's expertly crafted production it hums with the music of conversation and often-heated debate, occasional rhyming couplets and all." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"A spellbinding performance by the amazing Tim Pigott-Smith." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaire: Stage legends Angela Lansbury and Marian Seldes team up in this warmly funny and unexpectedly touching new play by Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Master Class, Love! Valour! Compassion!).  (plus) 


Presse: BEN BRANTLEY of THE NEW YORK TIMES: "The true tension in 'Deuce' arises from the fight between two valiant, vibrant actresses against a swamp of a play that keeps trying to suck the life out of them. And even a director as assured as Mr. Blakemore, who has done so brilliantly by the plays of Michael Frayn, can�t make us pretend otherwise.

JOE DZIEMIANOWICZ of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS: "Both Tony-winning actresses sparkle with the rarest of star power. But even that can't make Terrence McNally's pleasant but wafer-thin story anything more than it is - a coupla golden girls sitting around talking."

CLIVE BARNES of THE NEW YORK POST: " 'Deuce' should have been a grand slam at the Music Box Theatre last night. Instead it was a double-fault. And the double-fault was certainly not made by the actresses, for even the brilliant stereo sound effect of unseen bouncing tennis balls was far more impressive than the play itself, which our misguided heroines exuberantly bounced across."

JACQUES LE SOURD of the JOURNAL NEWS: "They (Lansbury and Seldes) are at the service of a play that is really a chamber exercise meant for a smaller theater, and a lesser cast. But then no one would care enough to sit through it."

MICHAEL SOMMERS of STAR-LEDGER: "McNally's slight piece about a pair of former tennis champs is scarcely any great shakes as drama, but it's pleasant enough. Viewers should expect an amiable 90 minutes with Lansbury and Seldes, each one charming in her own distinctive way."

ELYSA GARDNER of USA TODAY "Imagine a ring made of two precious gems set in pewter, and you'll have a sense of the immensely frustrating experience provided by Terrence McNally's 'Deuce' "

LINDA WINER of NEWSDAY: "There are definite pleasures in watching these beloved actresses trying to persuade us - and themselves? - to be fascinated and touched by the reunion of two aging tennis champions being honored at the U.S. Open. But it would be patronizing to these formidable women to pretend they don't seem wedged into a vehicle too flimsy for their muscle."

ROBERT FELDBERG of the RECORD: "You can't help but appreciate the professionalism of Lansbury and Seldes in 'Deuce.' Feelings about the playwright are another matter."

ERIC GRODE of the NEW YORK SUN: "Moldy new comedy about a storied women's doubles tennis team, has stumbled onto Broadway with the grace of a John McEnroe temper tantrum. This dispiriting waste of talent and time exists solely to let two grandes dames of the theater ...engage in the sort of banter and bathos that went out of style with 'The Gin Game.' "

JOHN SIMON of BLOOMBERG: "Sorely missing is a plot. Two women attending a tennis match might work as a snappy revue sketch; stretched out into an evening's entertainment it is both too much and not enough. "

MICHAEL KUCHWARA of ASSOCIATED PRESS: "Terrence McNally's 'Deuce' is a wisp of a play, more a conversation between two old friends than a full evening of theater. But if you are going to listen to two people talk, it helps to have the chatter delivered by the heavenly Angela Lansbury and the equally celestial Marian Seldes."

DAVID ROONEY of VARIETY: "Lansbury and Seldes turn the featherweight 'Deuce' into a game, set and match victory. "

Commentaire: Originally produced by The Almeida Theatre Company  (plus) 


Presse: BEN BRANTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says �The big moments that are supposed to generate shivers and gasps feel lukewarm and unfulfilled. And you never sense the damning connectedness of these people...Otherwise, this empty house is still waiting to be haunted.�
CLIVE BARNES of THE NEW YORK POST says "David Eldridge's dining-room trage dy-comedy 'Festen' - that's Danish for "celebration" - is an odd duck. Carefully, indeed brilliantly, coached by the director, Rufus Norris, the production that opened last night at the Music Box flaps its histrionic wings to some major effect, but it remains odd and it remains a duck."
HOWARD KISSEL of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says "Plays about skeletons jumping out of family closets were once startling. "Festen's" revelations seem merely musty."
MICHAEL SOMMERS of STAR-LEDGER says "A preposterous melodrama about something rotten in Denmark, "Festen" is a stinking misconception on Broadway."
JACQUES LE SOURD of JOURNAL NEWS says "Festen" is Strindberg without the nuance or the real drama seething just below its cool surface. It is simply cool, and all surface. Meant surely to be disturbing, the play never gets near your emotions. Ian MacNeil did the chic design work, which ultimately is dominated by one long dining table. The people sitting down at it are certainly about to have a bummer of an evening. Whether the chic crowd that attends the show will also suffer is debatable. The play's subject may be incendiary, but the payload, this time, is a dud."
LINDA WINER of NEWSDAY says "Engrossing, aching, classic-Greek inevitability of the family dynamics. The shocker itself is not likely to surprise audiences numbed by the din of dysfunctional-family melodramas of the last decade. What gives the revelation its shiver creeps out from the visceral emotions amid the formalities of the gathered clan."
MICHAEL KUCHWARA of ASSOCIATED PRESS says "As one of the main characters says midway through "Festen," the English import based on a Danish film that has arrived on Broadway with an American cast: "Welcome to this curious birthday party". "Curious" is not the half of it. Think "unlikely," "unsavory" and, at times, "unwatchable" because of some flagrant miscasting. In other words, "Festen," playing at the Music Box Theatre, is no cause for celebration." "
FRANK SCHECK of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says "Ultimately, there's a fussiness to the staging that is at odds with the extremity of the emotions on display. Rather than being the lacerating experience it intends to be, this production seems more interested in showing off its bravura technique."

Presse: BEN BRANTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says “I dreamed I went to a Broadway show that was supposed to be madly eccentric and surreal, featuring a giant lemon, transvestite angel and a hero with Tourette's syndrome. But then, in one of those head-spinning shifts of setting that occur only in nightmares, I found mystrapped inside a musical Hallmark card, a pastel blend of the twinkly teddy bear and sentimental sunrise varieties. And suddenly, as the breath was leaving my body, I realized I was drowning, drowning in a singing sea of syrup.”
HOWARD KISSEL of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says "Rarely have I felt as keen a sense of anticipation in an audience as I did at Joseph Brooks' "In My Life." Advance word had it that this musical, by the composer of "You Light Up My Life," was going to be a disaster of legendary proportions. The letdown came early. "In My Life" is awful, but as disasters go, it's minor league."
CLIVE BARNES of THE NEW YORK POST says "Fulfills every unpromise possible. In fairness, there is at times a kind of crazy professionalism lurking around in the wings that seems determined never to make it onstage."
MICHAEL SOMMERS of STAR-LEDGER says "A professional crew of performers and designers do their darnedest to make this bizarre thing fly. Now and again, the musical manages to take off for a few minutes. While this un-reality show never really wings to anywhere profound, its tuneful high points can be weirdly enjoyable."
JACQUES LE SOURD of the JOURNAL NEWS says "A picture of a giant lemon serves as the musical's final backdrop. An extremely close textual study of the script uncovers no explanation for this, other than J.T.'s declaration that "Lemon is something I say when I'm feeling good." Unfortunately, it's something a critic says when he's feeling queasy."
MICHAEL KUCHWARA of ASSOCIATED PRESS says "It's more fun to talk about "In My Life," the bizarre new musical at Broadway's Music Box Theatre, than actually sit through it."

Presse: Making Miracles On Broadway
It is the miracle of Broadway. Six months after Bill Kenwright opened in New York to notices which should have guaranteed the show's closure within a week, the musical has now played 270 performances to 270 standing ovations and is taking more than £200,000 per week.
Even New York Times critic Frank Rich, whose review read like the kiss of death at the first night party, has moved to hold up Kenwright publicity as a heroic model of positive theatrical production.
And the woman at the centre of the continuing excitement on West 45th Street is our own Petula Clark. It was when she and pop star turned-actor David Cassidy took over the leading roles that the turnaround happened.
Ms Clark may be almost over-familiar here from her early days as a child actress and squeaky clean songstress, but in America she is regarded as a sophisticated star. Songs like Downtown and Don't Sleep In The Subway also spoke directly to US audiences.
"I've been asked to do Broadway musicals before, I've even been asked to choose my own show, which was very flattering."
She admits she very nearly did not make the trip with Blood Brothers . "I'd seen it in London. I liked it a lot but it's very Liverpool and that's not me. When I read about the reviews in New York I thought it was such a pity.
"The Bill asked me to come and do it. I said No right away. There seemed little chance of the show surviving. But my husband said perhaps Bill knew something I didn't know, like the word-of-mouth that was going around, so I started to think again." The happy ending has almost wiped out the pain she suffered with the West End failure three years ago of a musical she wrote herself, Someone Like You. "That really hurt but you have to put these things behind you. I learned one big lesson - not to compromise. Little by little I allowed it to slip away from me. Next time I'll know better and say my way is the right way. Just like Bill."
-London Evening Standard 1995

"'Blood Brothers' wipes me away, without fail, every time. Petula Clark is in thrilling vocal form. David Cassidy is a gutsy revelation."
-New York Newsday

"'Blood Brothers' is better than ever with David Cassidy and the incomparable Petula Clark. A Perfect marriage of performers and the parts they play."
-Associated Press

"One of the best. A musical of gripping, chilling power."
-The Newhouse News Service
