What an epic storyline. What monumental characters.
And this Broadway production, despite all the giant tv screens, the whirling cameras, and Cranston’s bombastic performance, it remains tame emotionally.
The Beatrice Straight/William Holden scene was so full of rage and its blocking so uncontained. And what happened to the Lorraine Hobbs (the black Marxist revolutionary) character so powerfully played by Marlene Warfield? Her storyline was by far the most timely and edge-y.
