  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Thou Shalt Not

    One Flew Over the Cuckold's Nest

    Ben Brantley

    October 26, 2001: It takes a singing dead man to bring a spark of life to ''Thou Shalt Not,'' the limp and lugubrious musical tale of lethal passion that opened last night at the Plymouth Theater. Portraying a murder victim who returns to haunt his killers in the show's second act, a young actor named Norbert Leo Butz provides this fascinatingly ill-assembled production with something it has been aching for since its first scene: a shot of showbiz adrenaline.
