Enron Opens on Broadway
Enron, a new play by Lucy Prebble about the Enron scandal of ten years ago, opened last night at the Broadhurst Theatre. The reviews are in and they are decidedly mixed-to-negative. The New York Times hated it, calling the writing redundant and trite and the production itself predictable, but Variety magazine loved it. Or, at least, loved the spectacle of it -- their critic didn't really comment as much on the writing or the script so much as the production itself. We shall see if Goldman Sachs execs will line up for tickets.
