  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF The Cripple of Inishmann

    On a Barren Isle, Gift of the Gab and Subversive Charm

    Ben Brantley

    December 22, 2008: "For those of you for whom an annual reading of “A Christmas Carol” is as welcome as a two-ton fruitcake, the Atlantic and Druid Theater Companies have provided a savory alternative. That’s the fine imported Irish revival of Martin McDonagh’s “Cripple of Inishmaan,” which opened Sunday night at the Linda Gross Theater, offering its own salty variation on that sugarplum Tiny Tim. He is called Cripple Billy, and like Dickens’s beloved tot, he is sickly, misshapen and deeply wistful. I can promise you, though, that he isn’t about to say, “God bless us, everyone.”"
