It comes as a disappointing surprise that such a stellar cast cannot infuse life into this dated and sometimes embarrassing show. The anachronistic attitudes and overt racism that run through it feel out of place in contemporary theater. It might have been saved had the dialog been brilliant, but it is flat and obvious. There is little background given for the motivations of certain characters' actions, which make the play's dynamic feel artificial. That these esteemed actors appear to by working so hard on stage is evidence of the flawed nature of the script and their effortful theatricality doesn't rescue it.
