IT'S RAINING MEN!
There is only one thing better than seeing Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig, for the first time, in “A Steady Rain”----seeing them a second. This duo only improves their stage presence as they meld their performance delivery. Both actors give 150% each showing, before and after the play starts. They are uniquely generous with their time and it’s well appreciated. Never should a live performer have to deal with rude theater goers (bad enough that the audience has to), but Mr. Jackman and Mr. Craig have had to do just that. Cell phone interruptions and loud, unnecessary chatter annoyed me, but the gentlemen actors were far more gracious. They acknowledged the offense with warm humor and continued their lines flawlessly. Hope you’re able to make this limited run---the story is very moving even when hearing it over & over. Hats off to Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig!

THEY ACTUALLY MADE ME FORGET WHO THEY WERE
These men are completely believable in their performances. I was quickly drawn in by their characters and was actually able to forget the "stars" that they are. As a Wisconsinite, I'm familiar with Chicago accents and they nail it! I urge you to see this show, it's the best money I spent in NYC. A powerful play performed & produced with excellence!

ACTORS MORE THAN STARS.
I have to admit that I was drawn to “A Steady Rain” due to the fact that I like the films of Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig. When the play began, I watched the opening somewhat star struck. As the play progressed though, they ceased to be Hugh and Daniel to me and began to be Joey and Denny. They pulled me in as they say and I was riveted. These men are actors more than stars, and actors of the highest caliber. The writing is also excellent, first introducing the characters, then developing the story with a great mix of humor and drama. Leaving the theater I felt the story in my chest. It’s something I’ll never forget.

A GREEK TRAGEDY
Wonderful performance by the actors in this play of human tragedy. The language is nothing new. Lots of the s and f words plus the pejoratives you would expect cops to use. I thought it was stunning.

FROM OVERSEAS TO "A STEADY RAIN"....
Hello, we are 2 French "Jackmaniacs" and we will attend the Schoenfeld Theater on October, 23rd and 24th. We are longing for that event..... Our only concern is about the language, of course we can understand English in everyday life situations, but what about the kind of vocabulary that is going to be used in this play ???? We would be so happy if somebody could provide us with the text of the play, so that we could at least read it first and have a chance to understand it all..... Thanks by advance. firstname.lastname@example.org

Celebrity status does not translate into believeable acting from either Messrs. Craig or Jackman, though the former does manage to be somewhat dimensional. The fundamental problem however is Mr. Huff's weak and lurid nonsensical script and the staging thereof. The two's mens stories should evoke gritty, tense interactions between Joey and Denny. Unfortunately those moments are rare. Sets and lighting were thoughtful ... what's with Mr. Jackman's costume? Don't be taken in by the celebrity hype.
