Where Entertainment Is God

And now for the musical!

From Ben Brantley’s July Fourth review of a British play —

“These two redefine the laws not just of chemistry but also of physics, with each coming across as both immovable object and irresistible force…. I was always aware of how ineffably, achingly attracted each was to the other, and of the diametrically opposed ways in which that attraction became flesh….

… His Tom is all flying edges and angles, a perpetually moving and hungry soul who never pauses in the pursuit of his appetites….

… this Kyra is a formidably centered presence, the still counterpoint to Tom’s charming, full-court-press animation….

… The friction and the possibilities of fusion between Kyra and Tom— who must be together and cannot be together— make ‘Skylight’ one of the most intelligently sentimental love stories of our time.”

“The friction and the possibilities of fusion” —

“Rubbin’ sticks and stones together
makes the sparks ignite…
Skyrockets in flight!”
