Frank Langella in "Man and Boy"

Monday, October 31, 2011

Frank Langella discusses his career and his role in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s “Man and Boy.” Set at the height of the Great Depression, it tells the story of a ruthless financier whose business is dangerously close to crumbling. He tracks down his estranged son in the hopes of saving his company. The play is about family, success and what we’re willing to sacrifice for both. “Man and Boy” is playing at the American Airlines Theater.

Mr. Langella:

I am so very grateful for your exemplar:
method is of the moment, trial and error.
No cant. No heavy breathing.

Proving among other things that there is hope for New Jersey and those emanating from it.

I absolutely loved this production. Mr. Langella is a true theatrical gem, and it speaks highly of the play, that all the performances were equally balanced. I natter more on it here: http://heresheisboys.com/2011/10/16/man-and-boy-review/

Does the cast go back into rehearsals when it's known ahead of time that an understudy is going to be in the play, so the other actors have a chance to see what kinds of adjustments they'll need to make?

I'm enjoying this interview--I saw Mr. Langella in "Dracula" years ago.
