The design team of Derek McLane (scenic), David Lander (lighting), and John Gromada (composition/sound) magically transform the stage at the Loeb Drama Center into the sultry environs of a run-down tourist hotel on the tropical coast of Mexico in the summer of 1940.
[Director Michael Wilson] garners a superb performance from Amanda Plummer, a very good performance by Bill Heck, and benefits from a supporting cast of Tony-winners and Broadway-caliber production values.
Plummer’s is by far the best performance here, and by any actress on a local stage this year.
Bill Heck stars in an all-star Night of the Iguana at ART.
Wilson knows well how to cast and pace a Williams play so that not a word is lost, nor a nuance missed.
Michael Wilson’s starry revival... ends in triumph thanks largely to some of Williams’ best all-time writing, a superb turn by Amanda Plummer and a cameo-to-end-all-cameos from the great James Earl Jones.
This is a very solid, well-executed production of a lesser work by a great playwright, and well worth a look.
On a personal level, Iguana provides an added dimension of meaning by mirroring our current national circumstances of chaos, rage and incoherence.
WBUR/The ARTery: A.R.T. Offers Memorable Production Of Williams' Expressionistic 'Night Of The Iguana' (February 27, 2017)
Director Michael Wilson has made the rehabilitation of Tennessee Williams one of his missions.
The one raw, disruptive performance is Ashley’s as Judith Fellowes, the leader of the Texas ladies. It’s the production’s glimpse of the real Tennessee Williams.
