    Reaper Arrives? Grab a Kimono

    Charles Isherwood

    January 30, 2011: Total fearlessness is not a requirement for embarking on an acting career. But it is definitely a necessity for essaying the role of the dying gorgon Flora Goforth in “The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore,” a curious, rather curdled 1963 play by Tennessee Williams.

    The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore

    Erik Haagensen

    January 30, 2011: Tennessee Williams' 1962 play "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore," an unruly, extravagant, almost surreal meditation on mortality, failed on Broadway in two different productions a year apart, bombed again in 1968 on screen under the title "Boom!," and is regarded as the turning point in Williams' career: He never again had a commercial success. I've always considered it a better play than its reputation, but I never thought it could work as well as it does in Michael Wilson's mesmerizing production for Roundabout Theatre Company. If any production can undo the decades of unwarranted critical scorn heaped on "Milk Train," this is the one.

    Sandy MacDonald

    January 31, 2011: Director Michael Wilson has done the Tennessee Williams canon and New York audiences a tremendous favor by reconsidering a mid-career failure, the 1963 play The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, now being presented at the Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre.

    The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore

    Fred Sokol

    January 31, 2011: Tennessee Williams' script for The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore sustains interest but I would not list it among his very best. Cast members perform commendably, and the settings fully transport theatergoers to another land within the current production at Hartford Stage, concluding on June 15th. The play itself is thought provoking and disturbing.

    The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore

    Elyse Sommer

    January 31, 2011: Tennessee Williams produced a large body of work. Though best known as a playwright, his oeuvre included essays and short stories, with the latter often seedlings for plays. His 1962 The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Any More, now being given another New York life at the Roundabout Company's Laura Pels Theater is a case in point; its seeds being planted during the 1950s in a story entitled "Man Bring This Up the Road!."
