HISTORY BOYS BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: April 23, 2006
Synopsis: The National Theatre of Great Britain's production of Alan Bennett's The History Boys opens on Broadway, directed by the National's artistic director and Tony Award winner Nicholas Hytner.
An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results and a history teacher who thinks he's a fool. Alan Bennett's The History Boys is about staff room rivalry, the anarchy of adolescence, and the purpose of education.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"The seats in the Broadhurst Theater are no softer or wider than the ones in most Broadway houses, where the penalty for playgoing is almost always fanny fatigue. Yet for the entire, substantial length of the "The History Boys," the madly enjoyable play by Alan Bennett that opened last night, you somehow feel nestled in a plump armchair that has been custom made for your body — a perch that you are reluctant to leave, even after more than two and a half hours of sitting."
