Neil LaBute is great...this cast made him better

This was a captivating story from beginning to end. But it’s the cast that completely bends the story to their particular characters will;Amber Tamblyn was absolutely genius in my opinion. She was sharp as a tack and delivered her lines with a crushing combination of brutality and sweetness. But honestly , for all we know of Eric McCormack as a star, don’t ever forget he is an equally brilliant stage actor and this proves it.

LaBute Goes Off On Hollywood

LaBute let’s loose all his disdain for celebrity culture, L.A., Hollywood, actors, industry people, the culture of “showing” and being obnoxious about yourself, personal branding, smartphones & more with this script. It’s acerbic, intelligent, often hilarious, sometimes incredibly smart, & has his cruelty & gift for sharp dialogue running throughout in it. I’d have changed one major thing. I mean major. Because it’s too easy & pat & you know as soon as it’s proposed how it will play out. Other than that: it works. BUT that one thing does nearly ruin it. Despite a particularly juicy moment that comes from it. Performances across the board are simply great but I like Missy the best. Playing “dumb” is difficult & Ari Graynor is fantastic at it.
