Hatchet Job of the Day
BROKEN GLASS at the Vaudeville Theatre has been getting a string of good reviews with both Charles Spencer in the Telegraph and Michael Billington praising it as an oasis of good production in the barren desert of today’s West End.
Not innovative enough unfortunately for Quentin Letts of the Mail who struggles to come to terms with the fact that the play wasn’t written exclusively for him.
It’s about guilt, self-loathing, psychoanalysis and Jewishness. Lots of Jewishness. To a nice Anglican boy like me this soon became a bore.
Letts is not only bored by the (doubtless challenging) subject matter he seems uninterested in the quality of the performances which he claims would only be of interest to “collectors of top acting”, a category he seems happy to persuade us he is not in.
