O'Dowd brings all manner of subtlety to Lennie. What he does with his fluttery hands alone is acting inspiration. He sees that Lennie's feelings are all unguardedly on the surface and expresses that through mood changes often simultaneously funny and sorrowful.

Starring James Franco, Chris O'Dowd and Leighton Meester, this new revival of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck's novel follows two migrant workers as they struggle to realize their own version of the American Dream during the Great Depression.
The two friends, George (Franco) and Lennie (O'Dowd) drift from job to job on the farms of California, dreaming of one day being able to own a piece of land to call their own. When Lennie runs into trouble, George must choose between his friend or staying the course to fulfill his dreams.
Franco, O'Dowd and Meester will star alongside Jim Parrack and Jim Norton. The production is set to play a limited run and is directed by Tony-winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County).
