Intelligent, witty, philosophical play superbly performed.
3 January 2003 | by (virginia) – See all my reviews

Probably too "intellectual" for most audiences. Shaw wrote as play within a play, "Man and Superman." A four-sided debate on the meaning and purpose of life. The serious subject enlivened by Shaw's humour and wit. The play has little action, but the 1960 TV production overcomes this with clever staging.

Scott witty and sardonic, the perfect devil, well before he became famous.

My rating would be higher except I am relying on my memory as I have not seen the show since it was originally on NY's Channel 13. I keep hoping that one of the PBS networks will realize what a treasure it is and re-televise it.

cheers, Boom

PS The Broadway cast mentioned in the next review had Cedric Hardwicke as the Commendatore, Agnes Moorhead as Dona Anna, Boyer Don Juan and a superb Laughton as the Devil. An LP recording was made by that cast.
