    Critical Acclaim

    Burn This critics don’t have enough good things to say about Adam Driver’s performance. The Guardian claims, “A standout performance from the brooding [Driver] is the main selling point of an 80s-set comedy-drama that fails to match him,” while the New York Post points out that he gives “a performance as wonderfully weird as it is vanity-free”.

    While Driver is the highlight of the show, he does not steal it, and the other actors, especially beautiful Keri Russell, unite to convince us of the various ways people live and love after a tragedy. The Hollywood Reporter states, “Burn This ignites and smolders in director Michael Mayer’s revival,” and New York Magazine reports that  Burn This feels rare and refreshing in American theater.”

    Comparisons to the Smash-Hit 1987 Performance

    The 1987 off-Broadway production of Burn This garnered awards and theater legend for it’s moving performances displayed by its actors. John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich, In the Line of Fire) played the romantic lead, Pale, brother to Robbie, the recently deceased. According to The New York Times, Malkovich brought “dangerous sex appeal” to the “coked-to-the-gills” part. In a show centered on the raw passion of people in love and in mourning, he gave an impeccable performance.

     The Times is sure that Driver’s performance in the frenetic role will likewise have a powerful effect. “People will be speaking with the same gratified wonder of Mr. Driver’s very different but equally compelling Pale. Even more than Mr. Malkovich did, Mr. Driver makes us aware that real grandeur doesn’t always come in the expected, esthetically pleasing packages.”
