Journey's End: 02/21/2007

If ever there was a case to be made for giving a Tony Award for for an ensemble of actors, that case is being made at the Belasco Theatre where Journey's End is currently blowing away audiences nightly. Based on the real-life experiences of playwright R.C. Sherriff, the play is a tight, tense, emotional portrait of several days on the front line in France during World Ward I. It's a pleasure to see an audience as involved and engaged in a two-and-a-half-hour, almost plot-less drama as the one I sat with this evening. David Grindley, who directed the play a few years ago in London, has assembled a perfect, mostly American cast, lead by the superb Hugh Dancy and Boyd Gaines. Let's hope that Journey's End, bucks the trend and a thought-provoking intense drama can find success on Broadway.
