I know a lot of people find the ending incredibly moving, and while its a neat theatrical trick I felt the moment was also totally unearned. It’s - dare I say it - a teensy bit schmaltzy and calculated. But then I felt the same about petty much all two parts of it.

But one question I’ve had about this sequence and have had since I saw it in London: are these performers paid? How are they credited? Do they have to be Equity members to be on a Broadway stage? The effectiveness of the coup de théâtre is predicated by it being completely unexpected: it’s a small ensemble drama and suddenly there are a lot more people onstage, albeit briefly, and none of them are listed in the programme. This isn’t a criticism, but I’d be curious to know what - if any - were the contractual hoops the producers had to jump through to make it possible.

Joe.
