A Steady Rain was an entertaining 90-minute show. It wasn't live-changing or upbeat, but you did leave the theater thinking "Well that was interesting".

It almost felt like the play was two guys pitching a movie. The play is performed with Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman sitting on stools reminiscing about "the good old days". It's not as boring as it sounds - it's an entertaining story, and there is more interaction than I anticipated, but the story probably would have been more entertaining if it was a movie and you could actually see all the action unfold.

The two actors are Chicago police officers and lifelong friends who were "mildly corrupt". They were generally good people, but bent the rules every now and then. Without spoiling any of the plot, some of this "rule bending" causes some exciting drama.

The play is mostly dialog, but it still felt that Daniel Craig was more comfortable in his role than Hugh Jackman. The acting was decent though, and it was an entertaining show. It's not the best broadway show out there, but it is kind of neat to see two big stars playing these different roles.
