Durée : 1 mois 2 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Thursday 09 March 2017Première : Monday 03 April 2017Dernière : Sunday 21 May 2017Mise en scène : Pam MacKinnon • Chorégraphie : Sam Pinkleton • Producteur : Avec : Phillipa Soo (Amélie), Adam Chanler-Berat (Nino), David Andino (Blind Beggar/Garden Gnome), Randy Blair (Hipolito), Heath Calvert (Lucien/Lug/Mysterious Man), Alison Cimmet (Amandine/Philomene), Savvy Crawford (Young Amélie), Manoel Felciano (Raphael/Bretodeaux), Harriett D. Foy (Suzanne), Alyse Alan Louis (Georgette/Sylvie), Maria-Christina Oliveras (Gina), Tony Sheldon (Collignon/Dufayel), Paul Whitty (Joseph)Presse : "The mild-mannered musical adaptation of this movie, which opened on Monday night at the Walter Kerr Theater, is unlikely to stir similar passions...it is pleasant to look at, easy to listen to and oddly recessive. It neither offends nor enthralls." Ben Brantley for New York Times
"“Times are hard for dreamers,” the heroine observes. The same goes for audiences dreaming that this show would transcend, or even match, the movie." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News
"Book writer Craig Lucas and songwriters Daniel Messé and Nathan Tysen are at pains to articulate a singable emotional center of the source while staying true to its careening, cinematic narrative. The two duties ultimately cancel each other out." David Cote for Time Out New York
"From the music to the staging to the cartoonish set design, it reeks of well-intentioned children's theatre." Roma Torre for NY1
"This grating stage musical takes the slenderest of romances and drowns it in cartoonish quirks in place of genuine warmth or feeling. And while Phillipa Soo is a creditable stand-in for the movie's uber-gamine Audrey Tautou, as a musical comedy heroine, Amelie Poulain is a dud." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter
"But the star is so bland here, she's not even Phillipa Soo. More than helpful, it's almost mandatory to have seen the movie if you hope to follow the erratic events of Craig Lucas's twee book." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
China Doll (2015-12-Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre-Broadway)Type de série: Original
Théâtre: Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (Broadway - Etats-Unis) Durée : 1 mois 4 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Wednesday 21 October 2015Première : Friday 04 December 2015Dernière : Sunday 31 January 2016Mise en scène : Pam MacKinnon • Chorégraphie : Producteur : Avec : Al Pacino (Mickey Ross) et Christopher Denham (Carson)Presse : Les critiques sont très mauvaises:
"Please cue sound effects of chalk scratching on countless blackboards and the ping, ping, ping of an endlessly dripping faucet, and you have some idea of what Mr. Denham must be going through night after night after night." Ben Brantley for New York Times
"David Mamet said his new play, written for frequent muse, Al Pacino, would be 'better than oral sex.' Oral sex? 'China Doll' is not even better than oral surgery. At least for that sort of medical procedure you get painkillers. And it’s not a complete waste of time and money." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News
"This must be some kind of cynical Broadway-producer experiment: Will people pony up $150 to see Al Pacino in any old garbage? The answer is a resounding yes." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post
"'China Doll' is less a fully realized drama than an elongated rant." Roma Torre for NY1
"'China Doll' offers the sad spectacle of two world-class artists turning in their lamest work." David Cote for Time Out New York
"The play itself is a meandering one-note character study of a doomed man." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press
"There's a dispiriting fatigue to the writing here, even in the customary rhythmic speech that long ago became a Mamet trademark." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter
"Come back, come back, wherever you are, David Mamet. All is forgiven (even 'Race') if you will just quit jerking us around on non-plays like 'China Doll' and get a grip." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Parisian Woman (The) (2017-11-Hudson Theatre-Broadway)Type de série: Original Broadway
Théâtre: Hudson Theatre (Broadway - Etats-Unis) Durée : 3 mois 1 semaine Nombre : 25 previews - 116 représentationsPremière Preview : Thursday 09 November 2017Première : Thursday 30 November 2017Dernière : Sunday 11 March 2018Mise en scène : Pam MacKinnon • Chorégraphie : Producteur : Avec : Uma Thurman (as Chloe), Josh Lucas (as Tom), Blair Brown (as Jeanette Simpson), Marton Csokas (as Peter), and Phillipa Soo (as Rebecca)Commentaires : Academy Award nominee Uma Thurman makes her Broadway debut in The Parisian Woman - a new play by Oscar and Emmy Award nominee Beau Willimon (the mastermind behind Netflix's "House of Cards").
Ms. Thurman leads a starry cast which includes Josh Lucas, Tony Award winner Blair Brown, Marton Csokas, and Tony Award nominee Phillipa Soo, who are all guided by the capable directorial hands of Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon. Judging from the astronomical success of "House of Cards", Mr. Willimon knows exactly how to create dramatic tension in the political arena. Undoubtedly, The Parisian Woman is following suit and causing quite the stir on the Great White Way!
Set in Washington D.C., the play is littered with fresh references to the current President of the United States and weaves a twisting tale of backstage politics, leverage, and blackmail. These plot twists are as unbelievable as they are likely to occur in today's regime, when a man who is caught boasting about sexual exploitation still ends up running the country. The Parisian Woman is also a very modern exploration of relationships, placing the non-traditional under the spotlight. Chloe (Ms. Thurman) and Tom (Mr. Lucas) enjoy an open relationship which proves advantageous when external love interests wield power and influence in the political circuit. Ultimately, we discover that Chloe's love for her husband allows her to stop at nothing to see him climb the ladder.
Mr. Willimon's script is well-written and structured, even to the point where a midway through drop in pace disarms the audience and leaves us unprepared for the startling revelation of the next scene that hits us out of nowhere. And the production is certainly well-cast with Ms. Thurman's multifaceted and mysterious allure perfectly matching the enticing Chloe. In addition, Josh Lucas provides an earnest likeability as Tom, Marton Csokas provides the comic relief in the moments of Peter's desperation, Blair Brown is wonderfully sovereign as Republican Jeanette Simpson, whilst Phillipa Soo masters the difficult arc of her daughter Rebecca with confidence and vulnerability.
