Keri Russell & Adam Driver Take A Bow After Premiere Of Broadway Revival ‘Burn This’ [TICKET INFO]
Oscar-nominated actor Adam Driver and Golden-Globe winner Keri Russell took a bow on Tuesday night after opening night of their limited engagement on Broadway. In Lanford Wilson’s Burn This, which first opened in 1987, Driver and Russell play two people thrust together after the loss of a mutual friend – and their performances were met with rave reviews.
The New York Times lauded Driver’s performance as “impressively violent,” comparing the actor to John Malkovitch, who originated the role on Broadway. As for Russell, critic Ben Brantley praised her “in charge” performance. After its original run, Joan Allen won a Tony for Russell’s role in Burn This.
After the performance, Russell and Driver were joined onstage by their director Michael Mayer, the Tony-winning director of 2007’s Spring Awakening. Flowers in hand, Russell and Driver lauded Mayer’s work as the three artists took a bow together.
Burn This will run for a limited engagement at The Hudson Theater through July 14th only. Tickets are available on the theater’s website.
