2005

Directors: Jerry Zaks
Writers: Philip Barry
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Adrian Lukis, Jennifer Ehle, DW Moffett, Julia McKenzie
Storyline:
The chief acting pleasure lies in watching Spacey himself at work. As CK Dexter Haven, Tracy's first, still unsatisfied husband, Spacey constantly reminded me of Jack Benny: there is the same dapper precision, mocking smile and immaculate comic timing. When Tracy's pompous groom says, "I've got eyes and imagination, haven't I?", Spacey gives him exactly the same long, hard stare that Benny used to reserve for the band that would interrupt him in mid-joke. There is also a hint of the mischievous Machiavel about Spacey's performance that for me lifted the whole evening.
