A Moon for the Misbegotten

O’Neill clearly had a miserable life and this play gives us more in the form of James Tyrone.

The play is interesting, but depressing and the cast was fantastic – Jenny Young as Josie Hogan was amazing. We have never seen her before, but will definitely be looking for her again. Jim Mezon as Phil Hogan and David Jansen as James Tyrone both gave brilliant performances. But there really should be a rule against having two drunk scenes in one play. Even two great drunk scenes!

One Response to A Moon for the Misbegotten

    Yes, it was really well done and I guess it's a good play as well – but I don't think I want to pay for O'Neill's therapy even, or especially, post mortum.David Jansen has certainly come a long way as an actor, and Mezon and Young also gave great performances – I just thought it was a bit of a waste of their talents.
