Corrie Times Review

The Brantley weighs in.


On balance, positive:

The play, directed by Mr. Rickman, is not an animated recruiting poster for Palestinian activists. Its deeper fascination lies in its invigoratingly detailed portrait of a passionate political idealist in search of a constructive outlet. And its inevitable sentimental power is in its presentation of a blazing young life that you realize is on the verge of being snuffed out.

But then:
It is all the more surprising, then, to discover that for long stretches “Rachel Corrie” feels dramatically flat, even listless.

His main criticism semes to be of Megan Dodd's performance, surprisingly.

Not a "money" review. But quotable.
