THE MASTER BUILDER NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: May 20, 2013
Did He Like It?*
Ruthless and revered architect Halvard Solness (an electrifying John Turturro) is obsessively driven—until a young woman from his past stops him in his tracks. Hilde (Wrenn Schmidt, Boardwalk Empire), a force of unbridled sexual energy coupled with childlike willfulness, enters the master builder’s home and head, trailing mysterious talk of past promises. As she urges the megalomaniacal Solness to ever greater and less sustainable heights, his tragedy-haunted wife Aline (Katherine Borowitz) watches from the sidelines, an unwilling participant in an off-kilter love triangle.
Raising Towers and Wrestling Demons
*By CHARLES ISHERWOOD
Published: May 20, 2013
"Halvard Solness, the driven title character in Ibsen’s 1892 drama, “The Master Builder,” might well approve of the forests of glittering towers sprouting all over Manhattan these days, those skinny glass boxes housing luxury condos by the hundreds. The man devoted much of his life to building homes for families, after all, although hedge fund managers were obviously not among his clients in 19th-century Norway. And he was obsessed with adorning his own home with a sky-stabbing spire, an accusatory finger calling God to account for his failings."
