THE WRONG MAN Last Night
Posted by: sergius 09:13 am EDT 10/05/19

This sure feels like a tryout for Broadway. The show is slickly through-composed in all its elements (score, movement, lighting) and so it glides by. Director Thomas Kail and orchestrator Alex Lacamoire, impose a synthesis here that somewhat recalls their achievement with HAMILTON though the show mostly resembles MURDER BALLAD in its sound and presentation. THE WRONG MAN intends to be a parable of social injustice, but it never finds any real gravity in this regard; it's more sexy sell than sincere. Nonetheless, the stagecraft is impressive, especially Joshua Henry's. He provides a commanding, Janus-faced performance that toggles convincingly between force and vulnerability and cuts through the show's considerable gloss.
