Frank Langella on Broadway in Man and Boy

12 Oct

Man and Boy: What a show! First, Frank Langella is amazing. It is such a treat to see this guy’s complex intensity live. And the story is strikingly relevant to today’s times, despite being written by Terence Rattigan in 1963. Set during the Depression, the play features Langella as a finance mogul dad who heads to his estranged son’s apartment for refuge when word gets out that he’s at the center of a Ponzi scheme that will cause economic collapse. Can you say Bernie Madoff? Yet I still managed to feel bad for the guy (only a little). For his son, though, I cried.
