POIGNANT

Does anybody need another Wall Street Morality lesson? Apparently we do. The fast pace and state of the art staging made a tired subject electrifying. My husband and I are fans of Stephen Pasquale and to see him perform live was the reason we came to New York. He did not disappoint, nor did any of the actors. My rating system is 1* I walked out: 2* I did not like it: 3*I liked it: 4* I would see it again; 5* I want to hold on to it. I want to hold on to "Junk"

TRUNCATED REVIEW

Our performance ended one hour in when the sound system failed (hence the waffle-y 3 stars) and we were all told to leave. That said , what we saw of "Junk" was a Gordon Gecko "Wall Street" retread: a Pennsylvania steel mill is in trouble and vulture capitalists are circling. Good guys, bad guys, double crosses and a journalist fill the retinue, and most run at 12 on a 10 point scale. The director needs to tone it down, especially for an intimate room like The Vivian Beaumont. Good staging for the space, reminiscent of "Beautiful" with stacks of boxes alternately hosting the various scenes, or perhaps its a sly homage to the Dilbert takeover of the cubicles of the 1980's. It's impossible to tell whether the piece would satisfy or merely stay aboard the "Evil Capitalist" train, it closed prior to intermission and never came back. Tip: If your house gross is $150,000 a night invest in a backup sound system. If you're a failing steel mill find a white knight. Cheap insurance, both.
