The Country Girl, by Clifford Odets

The Country Girl

Frances McDormand, Morgan Freeman and Peter Gallagher star in the Broadway revival of Clifford Odets' "The Country Girl" at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. (Newsday / Ari Mintz / April 27, 2008)

I don't think I liked it. The play didn't have the real drama and left me untouched and dissatisfied. It seems like the actors, very good ones, somehow got together without proper casting or a director and just went through the motions of putting on a play. Morgan Freeman and Frances McDormant didn't work as a married couple, even though, separately they were good. Peter Gallagher became the glue that held the semblance of a play together, but, though he gave his 95%, he wasn't enough.
