“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

A Note on Miss Helen by Athol Fugard
December 30, 2011

It was a drive into the Karoo to spend a holiday on a friend’s farm and the route I drove that took me for the first time through what had only been a name on a map until then: New Bethesda, a small village in what turned out to be an absolutely magnificent setting. As I drove through it, I couldn’t help responding to it, because I was actually born in that part of the world—as a matter of fact, I was born fifteen miles away from New Bethesda in a place called Middelburg. Driving to my friend’s farm I was struck by its isolation and thought to myself, hell, this would be quite a nice place to have a house to escape from the city if ever I felt like getting away from the world.

“It makes you catch your breath. Rosemary Harris asks us to look close to find the creative soul within. And with the generosity of a great artist, she rewards us with the illusion that we have discovered the majesty of her character all by ourselves. Carla Gugino is bracingly vital and Jim Dale is first-rate in this powerful production.” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times.

Anything Goes on Broadway:
Baby, you're the top!

"The Roundabout Theater Company's current production of Anything Goes is just such a show, chock full of contemporary themes and ageless. It is for these reasons and many more that I'll gladly crown Anything Goes the quintessential American musical.

Apparently, I'm not alone in feeling this big love, after witnessing the smiles, enthusiastic clapping and bopping/foot tapping going on in the audience of the Stephen Sondheim Theater this past Wednesday night. To quote Porter's magnificent lyrics 'The Gypsy in Me' finds 'Anything Goes' both 'Easy to Love' and 'De-lovely.'" -
