I really, really, really want to see this, and will be in NY, but my question is: why is Brantley so surprised at how good Anika Noni Rose is? He's seen her on stage and in movies. She was my favorite in Dreamgirls. I'm fascinated that he was more interested in Terrence Howard than in her. Of course, I'm biased, 'cuz I think she's great.
I saw Kathleen Turner do this with Charles Durning and Polly Holliday. Durning was fabulous. Turner was fine, but wierdly earthbound and disappointing to me. Not my favorite Williams. But oh well, nobody's asking me. hee.
