REVIEWS

McPherson makes little attempt to have Dylan’s introspective, poetic songs (arranged in a period country-folk style, with intricate harmonies) directly flow out of the dialogue. Instead, they function as a kind of live soundtrack, commenting upon a preceding scene or heightening an emotion or mood. The musicians (who play their instruments onstage) and back-up singers mix in with the principal actors, creating a seamless company. The ensemble (including Jay O. Sanders, Kimber Elayne Sprawl, Todd Almond, Robert Joy, Marc Kudisch, Luba Mason and Matt McGrath) is uniformly excellent, but it is Mare Winningham who anchors the production with her raw and powerful performance as Elizabeth. CONTINUE READING THE AM NEW YORK REVIEW
This achingly beautiful musical weds the songs of Bob Dylan to a book, by Conor McPherson, that explores the unsettled destinies of the denizens of a boarding house in Duluth, Minn., during the Great Depression.What unites the characters, diverse though they are, is a sense of tenuousness, the feeling that the earth will never feel firm beneath their feet, that they will forever be on a search for a resting place. In short that they will remain adrift, “without a home, like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone,” to borrow a famous Dylan lyric that is emblematic of the musical’s central theme, the loneliness that follows the characters like an unshakable shadow. CONTINUE READING THE BROADWAY NEWS REVIEW
McPherson directs the production with calculated style, proving himself the rare playwright who can helm his own work. The actors often sing at microphones. Many times they gather in groups to back up those, like Bayardelle and Scott, fervently soloing. Winningham goes to the onstage piano, once playing Debussy’s “Clair de Lune.” Almond has a harmonica solo. At different times, Mason and Kudisch work a drum set. Among the 13-strong cast members, there’s no first of equals—unless it’s Winningham for her addled Elizabeth or unless it’s Scott for his down-and-out boxer or unless it’s Bayardelle for her wise Mrs. Neilsen or unless it’s McGrath for his slippery Reverend Marlowe or unless it’s Kudisch for his bullying Mr. Burke or unless it’s any of the other terrific eight.
