A doll's House, Part 2 (2017-04-John Golden Theatre-Broadway)

Type de série: Original
Théâtre: John Golden Theatre (Broadway - Etats-Unis)
Durée : 2 mois 3 semaines

Première Preview : Saturday 01 April 2017

Commentaires : One of the most important works in theatre history gets a sequel in 2017, when A Doll's House, Part 2 debuts on Broadway. Written by Lucas Hnath (The Christians), this new play imagines Nora Helmer returning to her family, years after she walked out on them in the climatic moments of Ibsen's 1879 masterpiece. Held up as both a milestone for playwriting and women's rights, A Doll's House is certainly a hard act to follow, yet the fact that producer Scott Rudin is premiering Part 2 on Broadway suggests that Hnath work is something special.
Presse : "A door that was once slammed so hard that the noise could be heard around the world is now being knocked upon, most insistently. In the opening moments of Lucas Hnath’s smart, funny and utterly engrossing new play, which opened Thursday night at the Golden Theater, audience members laugh at the sound of the demanding tattoo being beaten upon that door. That’s because they have probably guessed who’s on the other side.”" Ben Brantley for New York Times

"A door closes — well, slams — and a window opens to a sequel. Lucas Hnath’s compact and provocative comedy “A Doll’s House, Part 2” picks up after Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 classic ended." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"If Ibsen’s play is about suffocation, Hnath’s is about airing things out. Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting—Nora, now a scandalous writer, needs Torvald’s help to avoid being blackmailed by a judge—the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility. And Sam Gold’s exemplary direction keeps you hanging on each turn of argument and twist of knife. Everything about the production works. It’s a slam dunk." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Sam Gold directs in his signature spare style. Set in what is essentially a bare space, there is little action in this tale but much insight, and Gold shrewdly allows the words to take center stage, amplified by some spectacular acting." Roma Torre for NY1

"One of the most famous exits in modern drama prompts an entrance that bristles with tension, provocation and unexpected subversive humor in Lucas Hnath's terrific new play, A Doll's House, Part 2." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"So, did Godot ever show up? Were George and Martha able to save their marriage? And whatever happened to Nora after she slammed the door? In “A Doll’s House, Part 2,” Lucas Hnath pulls off the dramatic parlor trick of bringing back Ibsen’s iconic heroine — in the incomparable person of Laurie Metcalf — to answer that question 15 years later. Despite the modern idiom that Hnath slings around with gleeful humor, it’s amazing how women’s lives haven’t changed." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

"Stunning and deeply moving" Mark Kennedy for The Associated Press

"Composer Jeanine Tesori and writer-lyricist Lisa Kron have done something extraordinary here, reshaping cartoonist Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir into an unconventional memory play that seamlessly integrates music and drama." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

Glass Menagerie (The) (2017-03-Belasco Theatre-Broadway)

Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Belasco Theatre (Broadway - Etats-Unis)
Durée : 2 mois 1 semaine
Nombre :
Première Preview : Tuesday 07 February 2017
Première : Thursday 09 March 2017

Mise en scène : Sam Gold
Chorégraphie :
Producteur :
Avec : Sally Field (Amanda Wingfield), Joe Mantello (Tom Wingfield), Finn Wittrock (Jim O'Connor), Madison Ferris (Laura Wingfield)
Presse : "Mr. Gold and his cast, led by an intrepid Sally Field, have dismantled a venerable classic, but darned if they can figure out how to put it back together again." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"On paper, it’s intriguing. In practice, it makes for a disjointed “Glass” that is empty of emotion and impact. Intimacy gets lost when actors seem to be in different plays." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"For all this production’s cerebral choices and cold, distancing design, the emotional impact is there: love, disgust, betrayal, shame and the longing for understanding. Yes, Menagerie is memory, and I’ll not soon forget this shockingly fresh frame and angle. The glass figures are polished, hard, to the breaking point; the light bouncing off them is nearly blinding." David Cote for Time Out New York

"I applaud any director's efforts to reimagine the classics, but this production never got beyond the experimental stage, and should have been left in the rehearsal room." Roma Torre for NY1

"Despite some fine work from the actors, you end up being moved more by the sheer resilience of the writing than by the intrusive presentation. That's not to say this destined-to-be-divisive production doesn't demand to be seen, not least for the chance to watch Sally Field uncover the raw, wrenching despair beneath the abrasive nagging of her tenacious Amanda." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Of all the plays in the American canon, 'The Glass Menagerie' seems a most unlikely candidate for deconstruction. But that doesn’t deter director Sam Gold from laying hands on this Tennessee Williams gem and subjecting it to a severe reinterpretation — thereby hugely challenging the efforts of a very keen Sally Field." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
