“Misery” At Broadhurst Theatre Reviewed


Based on one of Steven King’s most horrifying books I expected more horror in the play. The setting was not scary at all, actually it was a nice, cozy country side home that looked like something I would have gladly rented on Airbnb. I have to say Laurie Metcalf did an awesome job at portraying a deranged psychopath. She was the best part of the play.

Bruce Willis was ok. Nothing special there. He let out a few moans and groans when subjected to pain but other than that he was pretty damn stoic the whole time. Bound to a wheelchair or strapped to the bed he didn’t seem to really mind it.  I was hoping for more edge of your seat nail biting, shivers down the spine suspense but there wasn’t much of that. The most suspenseful part was when Paul Sheldon (Bruce Willis’ character) coaxed the looney bird to have a romantic dinner in an attempt to poison her and failed, and the ending part which I don’t want to spoil for y’all.

The romantic dinner scene was actually funny. Willis’ attempt to gas up the crazy Annie Wilkes (Laurie Metcalf’s character) was entertaining, watching her get all bashful when he compliments her modest dress almost made her seem like a normal person.

 All in all I enjoyed watching it, got to see two great actors live and the plot was interesting. An hour and 30 minutes long with no intermission was cool with me. The play had a happy ending which is always nice. I kinda want to go read the book now.
