Unstoppable: Stoppard's Shipwreck Coasts Into Opening Night

Unstoppable: Stoppard's Shipwreck Coasts Into Opening Night

Tonight marks the opening of Shipwreck -- the second of three chapters from Tom Stoppard's The Coast Of Utopia -- at Broadway's Lincoln Center Theater at the Vivian Beaumont. Directed by Jack O'Brien, the full trilogy will be realized in early 2007 through Salvage.

While the entire eight-hour marathons have just extended to May 13 after initially selling out, Shipwreck is scheduled to clock-in at a mere three hours.

Lincoln Center describes Shipwreck as centering:
...on the visionary Russian leader Alexander Herzen and his fellow revolutionaries who find inspiration as well as frustration in exile in Paris and London. As the revolution of 1848 unfolds outside Herzen’s door and the tides of political and social upheaval swell, Herzen's circle, and his family, are profoundly affected.

The first installment was roundly met with a chorus of critical approval. Will that momentum continue? Find out shortly as I capsulize the reviews.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
