Commentaire:

Manhattan Theatre Club kicked off its 2018-2019 Broadway season at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre with the U.S. premiere of The Nap, written by Olivier Award nominee Richard Bean and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.

Richard Bean is perhaps best known for his hit West End and Broadway comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, which helped to boost the career of James Corden in the States, earning him his first Tony Award. But now, Mr. Bean (sorry, we couldn't resist!) returns to the Great White Way with a new comedy, based around a group of outlandishly appealing misfits in Sheffield, England, and the world snooker championships. For those not in the know, snooker is a revered British sport, similar to pool, and in somewhat of an intriguing, theatrical gimmick, the game is played live (albeit semi-stage, of course) in front of the eyes of the audience at each performance. Indeed, the result of the game directly affects how the play will conclude at each performance.

Kudos to Ahmed Aly Elsayed - the 2018 United States National Snooker Champion - who portrays two of our protagonist Dylan Spokes' opponents in the tournament. Not only does he get the opportunity to show off his skills with a snooker cue, but he's also a natural on the stage in his acting debut. And then we have the illustrious mob of zany characters, dreamt up by Richard Bean in this typically British, madcap comedy. From transgender ex-gangsters to con-artists posing as police officers, these over-the-top characters are brought to life by an accomplished ensemble cast of stage and screen stars, including "Transparent" standout Alexandra Billings as Waxy Bush and Broadway favorite and 2-time Tony Award nominee Johanna Day as Stella.

With Daniel Sullivan at the helm, the pace gathers momentum in later scenes and manages to maintain itself as we snowball into the finale. This is also partly thanks to the practical scenic design by Tony Award winner David Rockwell which allows for quick set changes and modestly depicts the realities of our protagonist's environment from a neglected, training room (where a meter charges 20 pence for 12 minutes of electricty) to the bright lights of the Sheffield Crucible, hosting the championship tournament.

Richard Bean's script keeps the audience on its toes with as many twists and turns as a Formula 1 racecourse and The Nap is a wonderfully light-hearted adventure into the worlds of illegal betting, professional con artists and a sport that, in direct contrast, prides itself on its history and traditions of a clean and above board reputation.  (plus)

Saint Joan (Original)
Joué durant  1 mois 2 semaines

  (24 previews)  (55 représentations)

Première preview: mar. 03 avril 2018
Première: mer. 25 avril 2018
Dernière: dim. 10 juin 2018


Metteur en scène:
Daniel Sullivan •  
Chorégraphe:
 
Avec:

Condola Rashad (as Joan), Jack Davenport (as Warwick), Walter Bobbie (as Cauchon), Adam Chanler-Berat (as Dauphin), John Glover (as Archbishop/Gentleman), Patrick Page (as Inquisitor/Baudricourt), Daniel Sunjata (as Dunois), Maurice Jones (as Courcelles, Page to Dunois), Russell G. Jones (as Tremouille, Page to Warwick), Max Gordon Moore (as Bluebeard, Ladvenu), Matthew Saldivar (as D’Estivet, Polly), Robert Stanton (as Chaplain, English Soldier, Steward to Baudricourt), and Lou Sumrall (as La Hire, Executioner) 

Commentaire:

Four-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad takes on the iconic role of Joan of Arc in the Manhattan Theatre Club's production of the 1923 Bernard Shaw classic. Although the production marks the eighth Broadway revival for the play, it was last performed on the Great White Way at the Lyceum Theatre back in 1993.

Director Daniel Sullivan's take on the classic is noble and classy with a striking church organ-inspired set design by Scott Pask, coupled together with Christopher Ash's at times firey and at times mystical projections that are never overused.

Saint Joan is an engaging history lesson brought to life by a talented ensemble cast, with standout performances by Patrick Page and Adam Chanler-Berat, in particular. And the jewel in the crown is Shaw's final scene - a dream sequence that utterly captivates and is sure to catch out those unfamiliar with the play with a pleasant surprise or two.  (plus)

Children (The) (Original Broadway)
Joué durant  1 mois 3 semaines

  (15 previews)  (63 représentations)

Première preview: mar. 28 novembre 2017
Première: mar. 12 décembre 2017
Dernière: dim. 04 février 2018


Metteur en scène:
James MacDonald •  
Chorégraphe:
 
Avec:

Francesca Annis (as Rose), Ron Cook (as Robin), and Deborah Findlay (as Hazel) 

Commentaire:

The acclaimed Royal Court Theatre production of Lucy Kirkwood's The Children makes the trip over the pond for an American premiere, courtesy of the Manhattan Theatre Club. The original London stars - BAFTA Award winner Francesca Annis, Olivier Award nominee Ron Cook, and Olivier Award winner Deborah Findlay - are all reprising their respective roles in New York at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Expertly acted with unassuming naturalism, the trio of actors tell a story that gradually unfolds to reveal that the stakes could not be any higher. The banal setting of a room inside a British cottage, courtesy of Miriam Buether's bleakly realistic design, juxtaposes with the chaos of "exlcusion zones," contamination and radiation we learn is ensuing in the outside world. Playwright Lucy Kirkwood's slow-burning and captivating drama drip-feeds us the details about the disastrous events that have led to our three protagonists' current predicament and keeps us guessing about their shared histories and the reason for their sudden reunion. Kirkwood lowers our defenses by her naturalistic style of dialogue and awkwardly played small-talk until she finally reveals her hand, consuming us in the gravity of the situation and the decision these characters must make.

In our current climate where political leaders attempt to devalue climate change, The Children could not have picked a more appropriate time to land on Broadway. With a sense of foreboding, the play highlights the sins of our generation by using the microcosm of one British nuclear power station and poses the question if we - the guilty party - should be forced to sacrifice ourselves for the good of innocent, future generations.  (plus)

Harold Prince •

Avec:

Chuck Cooper, Janet Dacal, Bryonha Marie Parham, Emily Skinner, Brandon Uranowitz, Kaley Ann Voorhees, Michael Xavier, Tony Yazbeck, and Karen Ziemba 

Commentaire:

No career on the Broadway stage can quite match up to Harold Prince's. With a record number of 21 Tony Awards under his belt, the acclaimed Broadway director and producer is celebrated in this Broadway premiere courtesy of the Manhattan Theatre Club. Hal truly is the Prince of Broadway!

The musical revue, which first premiered in Japan in 2015, brings together the crème de la crème of Broadway talent, re-imagining the classics that Mr. Prince brought to life over six decades of his illustrious career. It has been common practice in the music industry for decades for recording artists who have enjoyed enough longevity in the business to release “Greatest Hits” albums. After all, if you release enough studio albums, you’re bound to have enough beloved hits on there to justify the project. Well, now acclaimed Broadway director and producer Harold Prince is getting in on the act and has compiled a musical revue of theatrical gems from his unprecedented stage career.

With a cast of nine, comprised of musical theatre veterans and rising stars, each of them (whether male or female) takes a turn at breaking the fourth wall and speaking to us in Mr. Prince’s own words. They deliver insider anecdotes about his career choices as if they were channelling his spirit, signified all the while by them grasping Prince’s signature glasses in their hand or characteristically balancing them on top of their heads. These interludes sporadically appear between musical numbers that have become iconic and eternal in Broadway history.

Directed by Prince himself, with choreography and co-direction from fellow Broadway favorite Susan Stroman (a five-time Tony Award winner in her own right), the revue attempts to break away from the notion of being self-aggrandizing in that the cast members (as Prince) frequently remind us of the number of flops and negative reviews the director/producer has endured over the years. Indeed, at the beginning of the show an onslaught of show titles are projected onto the stage one after another as a kind of larger-than-life résumé and perhaps only the most ardent of Broadway aficionados would be comfortably familiar with every single title. But, of course, the household names are all there in all their shining glory and it is these that provide the musical content for this nostalgic evening of celebration.

The overture alone makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, beautifully arranged by Jason Robert Brown (who also provides the original song “Do the Work” for the curtain call). He has intricately woven together an exhilarating, musical patchwork quilt of all the standards we are about to experience (again), before we strap ourselves in for a rollercoaster ride through the decades. From West Side Story to She Loves Me, from Sondheim classics such as Follies, Company and Sweeney Todd to Lloyd Webber behemoths like Evita and The Phantom of the Opera, Hal has collaborated with them all... even Kander & Ebb are gloriously showcased here by Cabaret and Kiss of the Spiderwoman. The list goes on...

Highlights of the show include a heart-wrenching rendition of “Send in the Clowns” from A Little Night Music by Emily Skinner and Bryonha Marie Parham’s show-stopping take on the title song from Cabaret, whilst Chuck Cooper gives a joyously playful version of Fiddler on the Roof’s “If I Were a Rich Man” and Michael Xavier hits it out of the park with “Being Alive” from Company. And Tony Award nominee Tony Yazbeck, who once again proves he belongs to the tap-dancing elite during “The Right Girl” from Follies.  (plus)

Commentaire:

August Wilson's 1979 two-act play from The American Century Cycle about a gypsy cab station arrives this December for its Broadway premiere, the last of the playwright's works to play the Main Stem. Helmed by actor/director Ruben Santiago-Hudson, this marks his third collaboration on a Wilson play, having previously won a Tony Award for his role in Seven Guitars. This play is celebrated for its ferocious and spirited dialogue between the very different characters, as well as the myriad subplots and relationships.  (plus)

Manhattan Theatre Club's Heisenberg moves to the main stem after its acclaimed Off-Broadway run. It's the second Broadway production of a work by British playwright Simon Stephens, whose stunning, five-time Tony winning adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is still thrilling New York audiences two years after its debut.  (plus)
