REVIEWS

Winter storms may be in the rearview mirror, but idle storm chasers should know that there’s a tempest being whipped up nightly at the Hudson Theatre, where a ferociously good Adam Driver is starring opposite Keri Russell in a new Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson’s “Burn This.” Playing a character nicknamed Pale, a man deeply unhinged by the loss of his younger brother, Driver delivers a dazzling whirlwind of a performance, full of heat and anger, explosive grief and consoling passion. When Pale alludes to feeling like he has a furnace in his stomach, you have no trouble believing it: Driver seems to be generating enough emotional heat to power a whole city block. CONTINUE READING THE BROADWAY NEWS REVIEW
[Driver] not only gives a towering performance, he is a tower. If the Ponce Monolith at Tiwanaku ever came to life, it would be Driver’s Pale. This guy’s not just pre-Colombian, he’s downright primordial, and speaks English as if it were a second language coming from a person who never got around to learning a first language. Pale’s tirades show Wilson in peak form, and Driver does them full justice as he races from insult to demand to petty concern and then back to insult and demand and concern about his trousers not being properly pressed. CONTINUE READING THE WRAP REVIEW
Burn This is nothing if not conventional. Strip away the obscenities and epithets – shocking still, but for entirely different reasons than in ’87 – and the tale isn’t yards from Neil Simon or Philip Barry: An emotionally closed woman has her complacency (and her complacent relationship with that stuffed shirt) upended by the arrival of an uninhibited and very sexy wild card of a man who would have been Cary Grant or Richard Dreyfus in other eras. There’s even a gay best friend who cracks wise (and, as played here by Brandon Uranowitz, cracks wise very, very well indeed). CONTINUE READING THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW
