Jessica Chastain shines in Jamie Lloyd's new production

British director Jamie Lloyd revives Ibsen's classic, with Jessica Chastain winning rave reviews for her performance

Henrik Ibsen's 144-year play is reinvented once more in this brand-new production from in-demand British director Jamie Lloyd and writer Amy Herzog. Opening this week, many of the critics were impressed by Lloyd intimate staging and Herzog's sparse script, mirrored by the stark design of the piece, allowing Chastain and co-star, Succession's Arian Moayed to inhabit their characters without any additional frills.

The Guardian:
"Jessica Chastain captivates in minimalist revival...Chastain is captivating as Nora, providing a robust understanding of Nora's inner life beyond the cruelty she suffers. Chastain fully understands the various pieces that make up Nora: her humor, wit and (at times) incomprehension. A fuller, infinite portrait is painted of the long-time heroine through Chastain's work."

"Jessica Chastain shines in a Broadway revival that brings sparkling clarity to a classic... So what's left in the theater when almost all of what the audience expects especially from a Broadway play is stripped away?

In this revival, what's left is a beautiful, spacious clarity about what this oft-produced play is about, who these characters are, what they mean to one another and how they may (or may not) impact audiences of today. There is nothing but dialogue pared down by playwright Amy Herzog (the rare woman interpreting "A Doll's House," at least on Broadway) and played with great skill by most of the actors in the production".


"Jessica Chastain blazes in an intensely intimate take on Ibsen classic...Mounted with daring austerity even by the usual pared-down standards of director Jamie Lloyd, the production finds scorching intensity in stillness....Herzog is one of the most perceptively humanistic American playwrights to emerge in the past 15 years...The three acts may have been squeezed into one, but the ternary trajectory of Nora's character remains sharply defined in Chastain's performance."

Now showing until June 4 at the Hudson Theatre
