    Ah, Dominatrix: I Knew You Way Back in High School

    Ben Brantley

    August 13, 2010: Is it all right if I go ahead and award Zach Braff the prize for the best New Yorker cartoon of the year? I don’t mean that Mr. Braff, who was the star of the sitcom “Scrubs,” has taken up drawing for magazines (though, for all I know, he may have). It’s just that playing a reluctant millionaire named Harry in “Trust,” a slender new comedy by Paul Weitz, Mr. Braff is the unmistakable, flesh-and-blood avatar of hundreds of pen-and-ink drawings that have appeared in The New Yorker since its inception.

    Cast eclipses black comedy

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    August 13, 2010: There are some things you'd never expect to come out of Sutton Foster's mouth. "Lick my boot" is one. "I'm a brain surgeon" is another. It's all the more jarring because, since her triumph eight years ago in "Thoroughly Modern Millie," she's been typecast as a sunny Pollyanna. If "Trust" achieves only one thing, it shows Foster can do more than belt out tunes.

    Stars go bust with mediocre material

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    August 13, 2010: If you can tell me a clunkier setting than an S&M dungeon to explore the subject of power, you can handcuff me to a lamp post and call me nasty names. For that's exactly where Paul Weitz ("About a Boy," "Show People") sets "Trust," a boy-meets-dominatrix puff piece, a hot ticket now deflating at Second Stage.

    Trust

    Erik Haagensen

    August 13, 2010: Second Stage Theatre seems to be out to corner the market on emptiness. Hot on the heels of its uptown production of the vacant but flashy "Bachelorette," we get Paul Weitz's schematic, wafer-thin "Trust." You'd think a play featuring Sutton Foster as a professional dominatrix would at least keep your mind off the grocery list. Unfortunately, you'd be wrong.

    Trust

    Andy Propst

    August 13, 2010: Four people find themselves on irreversible journeys of self-discovery in Paul Weitz's dark comedy Trust, now playing at Second Stage Theatre. And while their crosscutting paths to their newfound awareness make for initially interesting theatergoing in this stylish production, helmed by Peter DuBois, the play ultimately falters as Weitz's plotting becomes increasingly convoluted.
