Overview Reviews

Critics’ Reviews

[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.

Review by Chris Jones from The Chicago Tribune

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.

Review by Mark Kennedy from Associated Press

[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.

Review by Jeremy Gerard from Bloomberg Businessweek

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.
