Tammy Blanchard is a powerhouse. Good to see her in this.

 

Otherwise, I'm not all that jazzed about Washington outside of film. His stage appearances have been pretty uninspired in my experiences, but there's no doubt that Rudin will have total sell-outs with this starry casting.

 

Iceman is basically now the Gypsy of plays: Revived every couple years with a new 'name' inserted into the now-famous 45 minute monologue. FWIW, Kevin Spacey gave the most brilliant performance in this show out of any other actor I've seen tackle it. He was electric.
