Perfection in a play, The Habit of Art
9 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

I really did not expect to be so affected by this play, on screen, from the National Theatre Live series. It was breathtaking. I honestly have never seen another show in which everyone seemed so completely on and every aspect worked seamlessly. The acting was perfection, my heart tried keeping beat with the impeccable timing and I left the theater feeling I had seen the best play of my life. I see a lot of plays and I have not even begun to doubt that feeling.

The Habit of Art is deeply moving, enlightening, hilarious and, best of all, honest. I knew little going in. I won't spoil it for you with details.
