Christopher Hampton's The Philanthropist at American Airlines Theatre, New York Post, April 27, 2009.
Run, run away from this one!
We had a fantastically sunny weekend here in New York. Not that I saw that much of it as I spent most of it at the theater, going to the theater or coming back from the theater. (That damn F line being all screwed up didn't help.)
You can see any of the plays in this trilogy but I really recommend going for the trifecta. And if you can, catch them all in one day -- they do a marathon every Saturday. The first play starts at 11:30am, the second is at 3:30pm and the last at 8pm.
Yep, it's almost that time of the year again. The dark horse this year is…the U.K. Don't laugh, it's true! I look at that country's entry over at the New York Post's blog. My fellow Eurofreaks, it's going to be a good vintage, I can just feel it.
Bobby Cannavale and Sarah Paulson take a break from their TV series, Cupid, to appear in this pretty nifty production. Actually I'm not even sure Cupid is still going on. These two just can't get a break on the small screen. I mean, how many cancelled series has Paulson alone been in? Thank god for theater, eh?
We've resolved a few kinks and I'm happy to announce I'm now also blogging on the New York Post's site. I'll stick to the stage there, though my definition of the stage is, of course, rather wide... Now go and bookmark that sucker!
Very mixed feelings about that one, to say the least. I'm actually supposed to start blogging at the Post very soon and I'm looking forward to developing some points I just didn't have space for in print. I hope they will help further illuminate my assessment of the play.
I'm chief drama critic at the New York Post. Before that, I was arts & entertainment editor at Time Out New York.
Why all the French stuff? I am, indeed, from France, and have been living in America for over 20 years.
