Détails de cette production  


Ethel Barrymore Theatre - Broadway - Etats-Unis


Inspired by a true story, the play follows the trail of a young black con man, Paul, who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge, saying he knows their son at college. Claiming he's the son of actor Sidney Poitier, Paul tells them he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul's intelligence (and the possibility of appearing in his father's new movie), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. After finding him in bed with a hustler, their picture of Paul changes, and Ouisa and Flan turn detective trying to piece together the connections that gave him access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul's cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory as his lies begin to catch up with him.

"That dangerous young man who calls himself Paul Poitier has grown up in the 27 years since he first set foot on a New York stage. All right, perhaps not “grown up,” since we’re still talking about a narcissistic con artist of adolescent fecklessness and zero self-knowledge. But there’s no doubt that he has grown in stature and, in a paradoxical way, truthfulness. This is because Paul Poitier (not his real name) has been embodied with tremulous, searching sensitivity by the screen actor Corey Hawkins in the earthbound revival of John Guare’s marvelous “Six Degrees of Separation.”" Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Broadway’s crazy good revival of “Six Degrees of Separation” is proof of theater’s enduring impact... Director Trip Cullman’s energizing revival delivers its own thrills — and one tiny nit to pick. It’s time for a moratorium on actors jumping on furniture to make a point. Besides Tom Cruise, no one does that. It feels like a con in an otherwise exhilarating, real-deal staging." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Trip Cullman directs with great panache on an evocatively shadowy, morphing set by Mark Wendland. The cumulative effect, once you get over the retro vibe, is renewed respect for a disquieting, still-rewarding work." David Cote for Time Out New York

"Trip Cullman's razor-sharp staging of Six Degrees of Separation serves as a welcome reminder of the fiercely intelligent, pungently funny voice of playwright John Guare at his vintage best." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Despite the vitalizing presence of Allison Janney in director Trip Cullman’s elegant revival, “Six Degrees of Separation” lacks the comic bite of the original production." Marilyn Stasio for Variety


Tony-winning drama Six Degrees of Separation is revived on Broadway in 2017, with acting royalty Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey leading the cast. Inspired by the true story of con man David Hampton, Six Degrees begins with a young man turning up on the doorstep of a wealthy Manhattan couple, bleeding from a knife wound and claiming to be the son of Sidney Poitier. Endlessly charismatic, he insinuates himself into their lives, and brings on something of a spiritual awakening in the couple, before events take an unexpected turn.
