"Resurrection Blues" to close one week early

Resurrection Blues, is to close one week early on 15 April 2006.

Written by Arthur Miller the play opened at the Old Vic on 2 March 2006, following previews from 14 Feb to very poor notices from the popular press: NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, “A towering embarrassment” PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, “Bizarrely awful production.” MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, “Clumsily inept, poorly acted production” CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “The most terrible embarrassment.” BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, “Interesting, uneven play…energy and tension are lacking.”

Directed by Robert Altman, designed by Robin Wagner, lighting by Rick Fisher.

High in the mountains of a South American banana republic, a revolution is brewing. When the rebels’ messiah-like leader is captured, a New York production company swoops in to televise his execution – death by crucifixion – and an explosive chain of events ensues. Resurrection Blues satirises misguided global politics and the predatory nature of a media-saturated culture.
