Skip the play about FLW, maybe
If you're planning a trip to New York and think the new play about Frank Lloyd Wright's life -- Frank's Home -- might be worth a look, you should read Charles Isherwood's review in the New York Times. The critic blasts the play as a "dreary drama," that is "sloppily constructed," includes "flaccid staging" and, in the end, is "unrelentingly dour." The play, written by Richard Nelson, was originally staged at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal partially disagrees, calling the play "deftly paced and admirably unfussy." However, Teachout's not exactly a fan of the entire production. If you are undeterred by the scathing NYT review, Frank's Home is at the Playwrights Horizons Mainstage Theater on West 42nd Street through Feb. 18. (Photo courtesy of New York Times)
