Earlier last week I got a chance to see the play listed above: “Farragut North”, starring Chris Noth and Chris Pine (aka the new Captain Kirk) playing at the Geffen Playhouse. It’s always refreshing and almost reassuring to see real film actors doing their thing on stage.
In watching the “battle of the Two Chris’s” it was tough to figure out who won. Chris Pine brought his chops to most every scene but the infamously talented Chris Noth was given practically all the good one liners-zingers.
It will have to remain a draw. Of course it was hard to pay attention to some scenes when all you could hear were swooning hearts of women and teenage girls that filled the Geffen Playhouse.
That’s life though; sometimes everything gets drowned out by the roar of a swooning crowd.
