The set is lackluster at best - not a typical Roundabout production at all. Like everything about this revival - lackluster and bare. It seems the trend these days - strip away the costumes, the set, the makeup and glamor and lay bare the script for all. Well, it hasn't always worked in the past, and employing the gimmick this time hasn't either.
It's a touching play (Scott McPherson) but this incarnation left me feeling empty and un-touched. I wanted the subject to move me but a juggernaut this time around this play is not.
