Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"An exotic beast is stalking Broadway. No, I’m not referring specifically to the man-eating title character played by Robin Williams in “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.” I’m talking about the play itself: Rajiv Joseph’s smart, savagely funny and visionary new work of American theater, whose presence on Broadway invites fanciful comparison to the titular beast. A Pulitzer Prize finalist last year, “Bengal Tiger” is like a majestic cat serenely striding through a litter of cute-as-can-be kittens ready for their YouTube close-ups. "

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"The Bottom Line: Dark and disturbing but also corrosively funny, Rajiv Joseph’s play set during the early days of the Iraq War is an exotic original. "

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Rajiv Joseph's script for "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo" has a special request about the actor playing the title character. "The Tiger can be any age, although ideally, he is older, scrappy, past his prime, yet still tough," Joseph says. "His language is loose, casual, his profanity is second nature.""

LA TIMES REVIEW:

"Robin Williams is a comic whirligig who demonstrated fairly early in his career, with the role of the motormouth DJ in Barry Levinson's 1987 film “Good Morning, Vietnam,” that he could adapt his manic gifts to the big screen. And it's a pleasure to report that this Oscar-winning veteran is able to translate his patented talents to the legit stage as well."

CHICAGO TRIBUNE REVIEW:

"The dark, rich and provocative Rajiv Joseph play “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,” a worthy finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, has arrived on Broadway with Robin Williams in the title role of the big cat, caged in an Iraqi war zone. It is a troubled piece of star casting that, regretfully, ensures that the Broadway experience is dominated by issues tangential to Joseph's main points of worthy exploration."

AM NEW YORK REVIEW:

"“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,” a surreal Iraq War drama by Rajiv Joseph, received great reviews in its regional premiere and was a 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist. But it probably wouldn’t have made it to Broadway were it not for the unexpected involvement of Robin Williams in the title role."
