  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF les liaisons dangereuses

    Hedonism becomes a gravitational force in Ben Daniels’s compelling turn as an 18th-century libertine in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which opened Thursday night in an eye-filling, very imbalanced revival at the American Airlines Theater.

  • NEWSDAY REVIEW OF les liaisons dangereuses

    Les Liaisons Dangereuses, so exquisitely unrepentant and sophisticated when the Royal Shakespeare Company brought it to Broadway in 1987, feels long-winded and a little dowdy and self-consciously naughty in the good-looking but erratic revival that opened last night at the Roundabout Theatre Company.

    Love is a many splendored thing — except when it isn't. In the Roundabout Theatre Company's new production of Christopher Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses, the characters played by Laura Linney and Ben Daniels at first seem resolutely unromantic. Anti-romantic, you might even say.

  • NEW YORK POST REVIEW OF les liaisons dangereuses

    Vice and depravity wrapped up like a box of bonbons, costumes to die for, a dashing swordfight - and while virtue isn't rewarded, at least the wages of sin are ironically paid. What is there not to like in Les Liaisons Dangereuses?

    Christopher Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a total anomaly in modern dramatic literature.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF les liaisons dangereuses

    No argument is likely to flare up when I say that Laura Linney as La Marquise de Merteuil in the Roundabout Theatre's accomplished revival of Christopher Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses is more exquisite than anyone else currently on Broadway.
