The Columnist Critics' Reviews

"Under Daniel Sullivan’s unerring direction, John Lithgow delivers a riveting turn in the title role of this crackling entertainment. The mercurial actor can go from flashing rage through wounded pride to glittering charm without breaking a sweat."

Review by Erik Haagensen from Backstage

"Outfitted by costumer Jess Goldstein in the WASP uniform of bow tie, natty suits and owlish horn-rimmed glasses, with his ever-present cigarette holder trailing a curl of smoke, Lithgow is a magnetic central figure, imbuing the role with rich humor that offsets Joe’s more questionable behavior."
