It's Only a Play Opens
A revival of Terrence McNally's It's Only a Play opened last night at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and the reviews are in. The show did not receive the reviews that its stellar cast and even better ticket sales would seem to merit. The show was basically described as a vaguely amusing, if not quite funny, night out at the theater. Nathan Lane was praised, Matthew Broderick and Rupert Grint were panned. Megan Mulally and Stockard Channing received reviews that were middle of the road. The writing -- well, thank goodness they have all those stars. And oh -- another thing. The irony that a show that makes fun of celebrities stars so many of them, was lost on no one.
