THINGS WE WANT
The New Group, previews start October 7.
Because Ethan Hawke’s adding “director” to his CV…
…with an indie-cred dream cast: Peter Dinklage, Paul Dano…
…and the New Group’s Hurlyburly rocked.
Best case: The Hawke who did Hurlyburly.
Worst case: The Hawke who did The Hottest State.
BAM; opens September 6.
Because it’s Sir Ian Freakin’ McKellen!…
…teamed with another knight: director Sir Trevor Nunn…
…who’ll show Kevin Kline (last year’s Lear) how it’s done.
Best case: The best Lear in memory.
Worst case: The best Lear until next year.
