Wrestling with Reality

  1. I have not yet seen the play with Jim Parson, as I am seeing it on July 7th, but your review is obviously only your opinion. I have seen the film with Jimmy Stewart several times. I will wait until I see it for myself, as I love Jim Parsons and do feel that he will revive the role that James Stewart portrayed in as much credibility as any actor could do when portraying another actor’s role. You mention that it’s ‘dated’, well, it is from the 1940’s. What did you expect?!!! Be realistic in your review…!

    1. True, Harvey is almost seventy years old, but a good revival should still feel fresh, or at least be conscious of its anachronisms–recent productions of Death of a Salesman (1949), A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), and ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore (c.1629) have proved just as engaging and relevant as any new play. Not to mention all the great Shakespeare we get here in New York.
