Closing:

Theater: John Golden Theatre / 252 West 45th Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

In Seminar, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Alan Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting new comedy.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Seminar

    Shredding Egos, One Semicolon at a Time

    Ben Brantley

    November 20, 2011: Maybe you can’t judge a book by its cover, but apparently you can come up with a spot-on appraisal just by eyeballing a couple of sentences. That, anyway, is the impression left by “Seminar,” the shiny, facile new comedy by Theresa Rebeck, which stars Alan Rickman as the posturing celebrity teacher of a writing workshop.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Seminar

    Alan Rickman leads a great cast in Theresa Rebeck's super play about novelists, 'Seminar'

    Mark Kennedy

    November 20, 2011: There are terrible moments of silence in Theresa Rebeck's new Broadway play. No, not to worry: None of the actors has forgotten a line or flubbed a cue while performing in the wonderful new comedy "Seminar," which had its world premiere on Sunday. Those pauses are just the moments where everyone in the Golden Theatre is frozen, staring at Alan Rickman.

    Alan Rickman is head of a talented class in 'Seminar'

    Elysa Gardner

    November 20, 2011: In the first scene of Theresa Rebeck's new comedy, Seminar (* * * out of four), we're introduced to a group of aspiring young writers who represent a compendium of clichés.

    Seminar

    David Rooney

    November 20, 2011: A slender but enjoyable play about the courage and self-knowledge required of any artist, with an ace ensemble led by Alan Rickman in fine form.

    Seminar

    Marilyn Stasio

    November 20, 2011: Teaching the young proves a treacherous business for both tutor and students in "Seminar," Theresa Rebeck's dark comedy about a literary lion and the young writers he eats for breakfast at his private seminars. Alan Rickman is heaven-sent as the sexy, sneering, snarling literary legend who condescends to tutor four aspiring novelists who have paid through the nose for the privilege of being abused. But these clever youngsters know how to play this intellectual contact sport, and even though everyone stops short of drawing blood, the civilized games they play are enormously entertaining.
