Theater Review: The Old-Fashioned Emotional Play of The Winslow Boy

17 October 2013 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Alessandro Nivola flaps onto the scene, beady and batlike in a big black Inverness coat, the temperature of The Winslow Boy immediately rises. Until then, it has been a rather cool if compelling light drama, introducing its large themes of justice and right (two different things) through the small talk of people taking tea and sandwiches. Suspense has been maintained less by means of character development than by the sneaky manipulation of information.We have already learned, for instance, that Ronnie Winslow, a 13-year-old cadet at Osborne Naval College shortly before World War I, has been expelled for allegedly forging and cashing a five-shilling postal order. We have seen how the shame of this unproved atrocity has thrown his upright but slightly shabby middle-class family into chaos. His father, a principled curmudgeon, has decided to do whatever it takes to have his boy exonerated. The stakes and the unlikelihood »

The Winslow Boy: Theater Review

17 October 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

New York – While Terence Rattigan’s plays gathered dust for decades after being swept aside by the kitchen-sink realists of the 1950s and ‘60s, the old-fashioned structural virtues and tremulously submerged depth of feeling in the British dramatist’s work have drawn renewed appreciation in recent years. Fresh fuel for that rediscovery is supplied in Lindsay Posner’s affecting revival of The Winslow Boy. The 1946 drama follows a father’s tenacious quest to prove the innocence of his 14-year-old son, a Royal Navy cadet accused of theft. But as is often the case with Rattigan, plot becomes secondary

Separate Tables

Directed by Lin Snider and Justin Bennett

Out of the Box Theatre Company


West End Theater
, 263 West 86th Street, NYC

October 2-5, 2013 (Closed)

If you know of stage play more perfectly realized than Out of the Box Theatre's polished realization of Terence Rattigan's Separate Tables, let me know and I will rush to see it. However, that is unlikely, as co-directors Lin Snider and Justin Bennett have created a profound rarity indeed: a flawless production. Everything about this rendering of Rattigan's play, which opened in London in 1954 and on Broadway in 1956, is sheer perfection: every performance, the set, the costumes, the invisible effortless direction, the brief musical interludes -- all make for one of the most exhilarating evenings of theater I have ever experienced. It is unfortunate that such a fine production was limited to only six performances: a production of this outstanding caliber deserved a much longer run, »

Al Pacino, 'Phil Spector,' and Media Justice

21 March 2013 6:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The gigantic frizzed-out wig on Al Pacino's head might be enough to make you curious about Phil Spector, the new HBO drama written and directed by David Mamet. In a multitude of wigs as conspicuously creepy as the actual Spector's, Pacino plays the fantastically successful music producer and reputed loony-tunes guy convicted of the 2007 murder in his home of Hollywood wannabe and  club hostess Lana Clarkson. The first question the film raise isn't about the murder though. It's an issue that comes up with both Pacino and with Mamet today: are you getting the good or the evil twin? Pacino the actor who can still dazzle, or the over-the-top sputtering blowhard? Mamet the disciplined writer of The Untouchables and Glengarry Glen Ross or the self-indulgent filmmaker (The Winslow Boy) who dictates that everyone to speak in artificial, terse Mamet-talk? Phil Spector veers toward the good -- although slick and easy »
