REVIEWS

Staged by Doug Hughes for Lincoln Center Theater, whose taste for quasidocumentary epics was also evinced in last season’s Oslo, Junk melds a breadth of genres—crime story, tragedy, issue play, cautionary tale—into a fast-moving, broad-ranging social thriller. Read More of the TimeOut NY Review
At first glance, Ayad Akhtar’s new 1980s financial markets drama looks like the kind of thing we’ve seen before. But what separates Akhtar’s play is how it so skillfully integrates the speed, size (with a large ensemble cast to portray leading figures of the financial community plus its cronies, observers and victims) and detailed plot mechanics of a high-stakes thriller with light comedy and space for the characters to consider how high finance both deviates from and reflects traditional American values, including the compulsion to win at any cost, even as the ultimate prize becomes increasingly elusive.

Steven Pasquale (“The Bridges of Madison County”) nimbly plays the Milken lookalike, Robert Merkin, with boyish eagerness that quickly coarsens into wild-eyed obsession.  But his enthusiasm for the dark arts is infectious, and soon all the other boys want to play this game, too. Their collective lust becomes so overwhelming, the whole industry smells like a locker room. Read More of the Variety Review
