Resurrected Is He Dead? Opens

Resurrected Is He Dead? Opens

This evening, the fifth Broadway opening of the past week occurs at the Lyceum Theatre. The long-lost Mark Twain work Is He Dead? is adapted by David Ives and directed by Michael Blakemore.

Even more intriguing is the comedy's casting of Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz in his first non-musical role on Broadway. Butz will portray artist Jean-Francois Millet, an artist who thinks the value of his work will increase if everyone presumes he's dead.

Butz isn't the only actor I'm paying to see. I'm pleased that he'll be sharing the stage with such former Tony nominees as David Pittu, Michael McGrath and John McMartin, as well as theatre favorite Byron Jennings.

Will critics think this comedy was worth resurrecting, or call it dead on arrival? Find out tomorrow as I not only present my regular critics' capsule of top theatre critics, but also share my very own SOB Review.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
