There's little hand clapping for the City Center Encores! Applause. For starters, leading lady Christine Ebersole, great as she is, lacks the requisite bitchiness, for the role of Margo Channing- think Lauren Bacall or Bette Davis.
Director Deborah Warner and actress Fiona Shaw have come up with a dazzling production of Beckett's Happy Days. Relevant for twenty-first century audiences, while still preserving the grandeur of this classic work.
