Quotation Mark

Yet the most forceful theatrical response to the administration is now on Broadway, with a nerve-jangling adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novel 1984, which just opened at the Hudson Theatre. This harrowing production stages what might be the most famous picture of a totalitarian future, one that’s penetrated the lexicon (“Big Brother,” “double-think”) and subconscious of generations of readers because of its vision of perpetual war, constant surveillance, and state-sponsored lies.

Theatre is now officially engaged—or entrenched—with the age of President Donald Trump. After the attempted stage invasions and protests leveled against the Public Theater’s Julius Caesar, and theaters that just happened to have ‘Shakespeare’ in their name, comes Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s stark, intense, and visually stunning adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984, which they have also directed.
