A Behanding in Spokane
Reviews are in and it looks as though I was right. Christopher Walken has been unanimously hailed as giving one of the best performances of the year in Martin McDonagh's A Behanding inSpokane. The play itself, while not one of McDonagh's best, still got pretty strong reviews, making me more secure in having predicted it for a best play nomination. The atmosphere of the play was also praised as being top notch, leading me to change one of my set design calls in order to give Behanding a slot, yet knowing that I made a good call by putting this show into the lighting design category. Later today, or possibly tomorrow, I will put up an updated set of predictions based on this new information.
