A Review of Born Yesterday (Broadway)

I saw Born Yesterday (Broadway) on 06/08/11. Overall, I'd say it was a 5-star rating. I'd summarize it by saying “this is an excellent revival”

Nina arianda was a highlight of the show because she gives a career defining performance. I would recommend this show to anyone even if you had seen it before.

Jim Belushi gives a solid performance and is menacing at times. Robert Sean Leonard gives a very understated performance but is excellent as well. I think as a result of Nina and Jim's performances which are very broad, RSL seems out of place. But his charater does keep the show from being just a broad comedy. The set was lush and beautiful as well. A great day in the theater!
