‘Burn This’: Adam Driver & Keri Russell’s Big Broadway Blow-Up
Well, here’s a treat if you really miss Adam Driver at his maddest and most threatening and weird as Adam in Girls.
In Lanford Wilson’s Burn This, which opens at the Hudson Theatre on Broadway tonight (to July 14), his character Pale is really messed up, and really physical; the whole stage and theater reverberates when his profanity-spouting, menacing character barrels across the stage.
This well-known 1980s play was written at a time when mad and messed-up men may have seemed like attractive propositions. Now we know better of the damage of tormented souls, and we certainly know about the damage they inflict on others.
