    CHARLES ISHERWOOD

    April 28, 2010: As good actors age — perhaps a more felicitous word would be mature — they learn how to do more with less.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Collected Stories

    April 28, 2010: Teacher vs. pupil. Let the conflict begin. Or in this case, the play — Donald Margulies' "Collected Stories," in an exemplary Broadway revival which Manhattan Theatre Club opened Wednesday at its Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    April 29, 2010: You can tell where Donald Margulies' "Collected Stories" is going as soon as its two characters meet -- which is about a minute in.

    April 28, 2010: Anyone who takes acting seriously would walk a Broadway mile to see Linda Lavin play a distinguished but earthy author who is betrayed by the adoring protege who worms into her reclusive life. Pulitzer Prize-winning scribe Donald Margulies deftly if oh-so-laboriously lays out the groundwork for the final confrontation that allows Lavin to rip her guts out. Manhattan Theater Club a.d. Lynne Meadow, who previously directed Lavin in "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife" and helms here, respects her star's firepower and has hired a classy tech-team to prove it. But lordy, lordy, what a boring play it is.

    April 28, 2010: In this season of revivals, one might well ask, "Do we really need another production of 'Collected Stories' "? After all, Donald Margulies' two-hander, about the blurred lines between fiction and friendship, has had two similar productions in New York within recent memory: the premiere, presented Off-Broadway in 1997 with Maria Tucci and Debra Messing, and a subsequent staging just one year later, headlined by Uta Hagen and Lorca Simons. Linda Lavin and Samantha Mathis starred in a Los Angeles edition in 1999, which was later broadcast on PBS.
