    ‘All the Ways to Say I Love You,’ a Lesson in Guilt

    Ben Brantley

    September 28, 2016: When a subway rumbles under the Lucille Lortel Theater these days, audiences assembled there for Neil LaBute’s “All the Ways to Say I Love You” may assume that it’s just Judith Light’s thundering pulse. Portraying a schoolteacher with a secret (or rather, A Secret) in a self-flagellating monologue that could have been written only by Mr. LaBute, she gives palpable force to a buried guilt that keeps clawing its way to the light, like some prematurely entombed figure out of Edgar Allan Poe. Her performance in this MCC production, which opened on Wednesday night under the assured direction of Leigh Silverman, is a model of modulated transparency. It’s an artful “now you see her, now you don’t” presentation of character that almost makes you believe that the story being told on stage may wind up surprising you after all.
