  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Enron

    April 27, 2010: In Lucy Prebble’s “Enron,” the flashy but labored economics lesson that opened on Tuesday night at the Broadhurst Theater, money doesn’t just talk. It sings. It dances. It puts on funny animal costumes. And of course it blows bubbles.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Enron

    April 27, 2010: The financial finagling is not as much fun as it should be in "Enron," a flashy yet lumbering docudrama that has arrived on Broadway trailing rave reviews from England, where maybe they take a much keener delight in all-American chicanery.

    Joy Ride Amid Fast Cash and Cooked Books

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    April 28, 2010: The "Enron" that opened on Broadway last night isn't a lecture or a documentary. It's a show. After snoozing through many well-meaning tracts about Iraq, the prospect of a play about a financial meltdown wasn't appealing. But "Enron" is a whip-smart, edge-of-your-seat ride that'd rival anything at Six Flags -- there are even raptor-headed businessmen prancing around.

    Enron

    Marilyn Stasio

    April 28, 2010: Industry doomsayers were all wet about "Enron." This London bombshell is both a dazzling piece of entertainment and a gripping cautionary tale about the criminal chicanery that eviscerated the most respected corporate body in America. Still, it cost a bundle (a reputed $5 million) to haul this hi-tech show into town, and everyone's wondering if starstruck musical junkies will part with their coin for a straight play. What's clear is that the sensational stage effects deliver the same blood-pumping thrills of a musical, wrapped around a play, by Lucy Prebble, with more brains in its head than any tuner since "Assassins."

    Exhilarating 'Enron' is anything but old news

    Elysa Gardner

    April 29, 2010: With Goldman Sachs executives answering to a Senate committee this week, the latest round of financial wizards under fire after being accused of corrupt practices, perhaps the Enron scandal of 2001 seems like yesterday's news.

  • CHICAGO TRIBUNE REVIEW OF Enron

    April 27, 2010: Jeffrey Keith Skilling, the former president of Enron Corp., has been quietly serving a 24-year sentence at a federal prison in Colorado. The misdoings of the convicted architect of America’s biggest corporate bankruptcy have faded from the front pages, replaced by similarly arcane financial chicanery perpetuated by others — not in energy trading, but in the packaging of toxic mortgages.

  • BACKSTAGE REVIEW OF Enron

    April 27, 2010: Playwright Lucy Prebble gets points for ambition. "Enron" wants to be a bold, slashing piece of political theater that exposes the greed and selfishness at the heart of American capitalism through the titular energy company's collapse. I'm in sympathy with her point of view but unpersuaded by her methodology. Her play is like a big, shiny, beautifully wrapped package that once eagerly ripped opened reveals a horde of Styrofoam peanuts through which you search vainly for the anticipated present.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Enron

    April 27, 2010: Bottom Line: Stylized theatrical depiction of the notorious energy company's rise and fall doesn't provide a satisfying return on the audience's investment.
