REVIEW: Everybody Loves to Break a Bough: The Cradle Will Rock at Classic Stage Company (for Parterre Box)
At Classic Stage, this pallid imitation of Brecht & Weill meets a director with the same aesthetic.
Rodgers and Hart’s 1938 dance musical proves impossible to resuscitate.
Scott Ellis’s busy production puts Porter’s sublime musical between a rock and a hard place.
Anna Netrebko and Anita Rachvelishvili shine especially bright in this worthy revival.
Lerner and Loewe’s “lost” musical is a wonderful oddity that should be better known.
Seen here, an old fashioned but endearing musical becomes a Trumpian fantasia.
Eleanor Burgess’s thought-provoking, intelligent play was a balm to my wounded soul.
Jez Butterworth’s epochal play provokes feelings of exhilaration and mourning.
Bryan Cranston’s brilliant performance aside, this adaptation proves even more problematic than the original film.
