I saw the play this afternoon. It found it always interesting, but, as you suggest, Sergius, never exciting, never thrilling. And while you’re right that “there’s a psychologically richer story to be told about men like Putin,” I think you’re faulting the play for failing to do something it never intended to do. Ultimately this is a play about Boris Berezovsky, not Putin, and I found Boris’s character rich indeed (though perhaps that was in part because of Stuhlbarg’s terrifically entertaining performance).
