Review Roundup
February 8, 2012

“Mr. Gold’s direction is so passionately precise that it contrives to make most of the rough places plain enough. As for Mr. Rhys’s performance, it’s flat-out phenomenal.  I suspect it will be a long time before another revival as well cast and thrillingly staged as this one comes to New York." - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

Review Roundup: ‘Look Back in Anger’

The Wall Street Journal
Still Angry After All These Years
Terry Teachout

"Mr. Gold's direction is so passionately precise that it contrives to make most of the rough places plain enough. As for Mr. Rhys's performance, it's flat-out phenomenal. I suspect it will be a long time before another revival as well cast and thrillingly staged as this one comes to New York."

Newsday
'Look Back in Anger' suffuses '50s heat
Linda Winer

"There are powder-kegs of fury in director Sam Gold's galvanic, comfortably erotic, nasty revival, not to mention four incisive actors cutting deep into the hyper-articulate verbal and body language."

Read the entire review.

Time Out New York
Director Sam Gold shakes up the 1956 English shocker in a stripped-down revival
David Cote

"The acting is jazzy, sensual and dirty. Rhys is thrilling, with a great ear for his slashing speeches and a splash of Richard Burton’s whiskey growl in his timbre. Goldberg abases herself with perilous abandon. Parry is well cast as the flinty, arch Helena, and Driver continues to impress with his sly, boyish ardor."

New York Post
A look at good 'Anger' management

Elisabeth Vincentelli

"Gold’s bold, imaginative staging makes a strong case for Osborne in the 21st century."
