  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF After Miss Julie

    Let me just say up front that I was rooting for Sienna Miller, who is making her Broadway debut in Patrick Marber’s “After Miss Julie,” which opened Thursday night at the American Airlines Theater. She has always struck me as a game, gutsy kind of gal, as intrepid in choosing film roles (“Factory Girl,” “Interview”) as in courting (and wrestling with) the fame that now accompanies her like an unwanted bodyguard.

  • WALL STREET JOURNAL REVIEW OF After Miss Julie

    August Strindberg's "Miss Julie," written in 1888 and last seen on Broadway for three nights in 1962, is now being performed there again—after a fashion. In "After Miss Julie," Patrick Marber's 1995 rewrite, Strindberg's once-scandalous, still-disturbing play about an arrogant young countess (Sienna Miller) who sleeps with her father's footman (Jonny Lee Miller) is transplanted from 19th-century Sweden to England in 1945.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF After Miss Julie

    Patrick Marber's apt idea for After Miss Julie, his updated spin on August Strindberg's landmark 1888 drama Miss Julie now making its American premiere at the Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre, was to unfold the play at an English manor on the 1945 evening the Labor party took over the British government. But while the revision succeeds in paralleling the reshuffling of Great Britain's eternally class-conscious system, the resulting production is not exactly revelatory in any way.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF After Miss Julie

    That's some handsome country kitchen Allen Moyer has designed for "After Miss Julie," with its chunky farm table, its sideboard stacked with Wedgewood and its oven range fringed by hanging copper pots and hissing steam. Pity there's so little cooking in Mark Brokaw's enervated production. Like Strindberg's play, Patrick Marber's blunt postwar-English update of the 1888 drama about class and sex requires an actress capable of negotiating wild swings and reversals. But Sienna Miller is out of her depth in the title role, making her dance of power and death an unaffecting tragedy.

  • ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW OF After Miss Julie

    Based on a play by 19th-century Swedish playwright August Strindberg, Patrick Marber's After Miss Julie instills the upstairs-downstairs tension of a film like Atonement with the raw sexual pulse Marber later perfected in his late-'90s drama Closer. Re-set in a fabulous, artfully lit representation of a 1945 British estate's kitchen, the three-person play tackles class prejudices intertwined with a classic battle of the sexes. Jonny Lee Miller (Eli Stone) is solid as John, the simple chauffeur who forsakes his patient betrothed (a sly Marin Ireland) for a taste of forbidden fruit. After his fiancée retires one night, he engages in an illicit fling with the master's daughter, the haughty but crumbling Miss Julie (Sienna Miller).
