Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz star in the Broadway revival of Harold Pinter's drama.
Comments from published critics
‘‘[Rafe] Spall is, of course, much lesser known than his A-list co-stars, but it is Spall who runs off with the show at its crucial junctures, an imbalance that strikes me as perfect for 'Betrayal,' and, frankly, very much to the credit of these actors.’’
‘‘Liquor is the lubrication that keeps each participant from going on a table-flipping screaming rant or utterly collapsing. [Mike] Nichols proves once again—as if anyone needed it—that he is brilliant at stripping away everything that is not the meaning of the play.’’
‘‘[Daniel] Craig is suave and collegial as Robert, a London book publisher. [Rafe] Spall is hungry and rough-edged in a sexually magnetic way as his best friend Jerry, a writers’ agent.’’
‘‘A respectable stage actor before he became 007, [Daniel Craig] brings the same fierce intensity to talking that he does to zipping across moving trains and zapping supervillains.’’
