THE BROKEN HEART NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: February 4, 2012
Did He Like It?*
The Broken Heart, a 1629 tragic-comic gem written by John Ford, (Tis Pity She's a Whore), is set in ancient Sparta, but Ford's world more closely resembles the 17th Century court of Charles II. A young woman forced to marry a ridiculously jealous codger. A cruel nobleman bent on frustrating his sister's happiness. A princess who tries to stand aloof from the emotional discord, but lives to feel love ruining her composure. These are the main plot engines.
All Is Not Well in Gloomy Sparta, and You Can Bet It Won’t End Well

"“Our court wears gravity more than we relish,” says the Spartan King Amyclas, hoping for some festive wedding celebrations to raise the collective spirits, in “The Broken Heart,” a 17th-century drama by John Ford being presented at the Duke on 42nd Street by Theater for a New Audience."
