    After Extramarital Activities, Politician Looks for the Words

    Ben Brantley

    November 4, 2013: All he’s trying to do, says Bill, a proverbial man in a bar, struggling to find the words, is “to begin the conversation, the honest conversation.” In your dreams, Bill. This deluded fool lives in a play by Bruce Norris — or to be specific, an alternately energizing and tedious comedy called “Domesticated,” which opened on Monday night at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in a Lincoln Center Theater production. And Bill’s status as a resident of Norrisville means that conversation just ain’t gonna happen.

    Off Broadway Review: ‘Domesticated’

    Marilyn Stasio

    November 4, 2013: “Domesticated” is the kind of play that big subscription houses are always on the hunt for: An entertaining domestic drama on a stimulating topic (the breakup of a marriage under scandalous circumstances), written by a reliable scribe (Bruce Norris, Pulitzer and Tony-winning author of “Clybourne Park”), performed by top-drawer thesps (Jeff Goldblum and Laurie Metcalf), and guaranteed to give auds something to talk (argue?) about on the drive home. In short, the kind of play you might just have to commission, which is just what Lincoln Center Theater did.

    Domesticated: Theater Review

    David Rooney

    November 4, 2013: NEW YORK – What Bruce Norris did for prickly attitudes surrounding race in his Pulitzer- and Tony-winning Clybourne Park, the playwright does for similarly irreconcilable issues of gender politics in Domesticated. While not as incisive or ingeniously structured as the earlier work, this is a tart, provocative comedy of the most corrosive kind, driven by scathingly funny dialogue. Anna D. Shapiro’s super-streamlined production for Lincoln Center Theater boasts a terrific cast, with a superbly matched Jeff Goldblum and Laurie Metcalf facing off as the warring husband and wife under a sticky spotlight.

    Review: A Philandering Pol Gets Tamed in Razor-Sharp "Domesticated"

    Robert Kahn

    November 4, 2013: Playwright Bruce Norris cast a jaundiced eye on race and class in his Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning “Clybourne Park.” With “Domesticated" a meaty new drama, he sifts through equally fertile soil -- gender and sexuality -- with nearly as satisfying results.

    'Domesticated' review: Sex scandal tale resists convention

    Linda Winer

    November 25, 2013: Don't be lulled by the laughs, or even the sniggering, in "Domesticated," the latest Bruce Norris tragicomedy to draw us into a familiar situation before scorching all sides with their -- our? -- own hypocrisies.
