“Rarely has sexual passion been depicted with such tense, animalistic ferocity on a Broadway stage. Carla Gugino offers a thrilling, brave, luminous, ultimately haunting performance. Pablo Schreiber and Brian Dennehy give performances of unflagging commitment and exposed feeling. A gutsy, entrancing, visually spectacular production.”
