Middle-aged white male wish fulfilment writ large, The Starry Messenger is a dull, disappointing and delusional three hours at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
Jim Norton, Jenny Galloway and Rosalind Eleazar join Matthew Broderick and Elizabeth McGovern in the West End production of The Starry Messenger by Kenneth Lonergan.
The joy of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train is in meeting his characters: watching them perform to each other; hearing their patois and verbal brio; exude a charisma which they know gives them power.
Originally directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman and performed by LABrynth Theatre Company, Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Olivier-nominated Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train, returns to London in a striking revival directed by Kate Hewitt.
Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Stephen Adley Guirgis doesn’t pull any punches with his tough, uncompromising prison drama Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train at the Young Vic Theatre.
This revival of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train is a layered story of two violent criminals, the system they hope can save them and the redemptive power that comes from confession.
Jesus Hopped The ‘A’ Train is gripping from start to finish, laced with black humour and a play that will have you questioning your reactions and beliefs.
