Still catching up from last week, I’ve just posted my review of Wally Shawn’s Marie and Bruce, being revived by the New Group in a production starring Marisa Tomei and Frank Whaley, beautifully staged by Scott Elliott. I liked everything about the production but one thing. It’s a big but, though. Check out the whole review online here and let me know what you think.
It’s a tough play, in many ways, but I retain very fond memories of the original production at the Public Theater, which I saw not long after I moved to New York in 1980. Directed by the late great Wilford Leach, the production starred Louise Lasser and Bob Balaban (below).
