Paul Rudd and Michael Shannon star in Craig Wright's suspense.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Director Dexter Bullard, who staged a previous production of the play in Chicago, succeeds at creating atmosphere—down to the huge eye-shaped window on the sky.’’
‘‘Rudd rises to the considerable challenge posed by Steve, who is at once guileless and presumptuous, well-meaning and self-serving to the point of being callous and cruel. The easy affability that he has brought to numerous films is distorted into a glib sense of entitlement that becomes comically anti-social.’’
‘‘The superbly-acted 'Grace,' which opened Thursday night at the Cort Theatre, is odd and utterly compelling. The play, by Craig Wright, pokes fun at a common religious belief, while making as eloquent and sensitive an argument for the rewards of faith as you'll find.’’
‘‘Sam, who’s been scarred all over by life, has come to mistrust the world. And because Sam is played by Michael Shannon, we trust in his mistrust so deeply that it hurts. By the way, his instincts aren’t wrong.’’
