Sienna Miller’s Broadway Debut ‘After Miss Julie’ Gets Shocking Reviews
Hollywood actress Sienna Miller's Broadway debut in "After Miss Julie" has been hit by a string of bad reviews with critics mauling her performance.
The actress stars in Patrick Marber's adaptation of the August Strindberg classic "Miss Julie". On the opening night Thursday Miller's performance came under the spotlight, with critics labelling her "second rate", reports contactmusic.com.
"Ms. Miller registers as a healthy, sane young woman with good diction, good posture and great legs. Commendable as these attributes are, they are of limited use in portraying a tautly wound, death-courting neurotic who is eaten alive by her own demons," wrote Ben Brantley, of the New York Times.
"If Julie is written as clashing chords of conflicted impulses, Ms. Miller plays them like a novice at a piano, plunking down each note loudly and individually," he added
Added Wall Street Journal theatre critic Terry Teachout: "A model turned second-tier movie star, all she does is stalk around the stage striking vampy poses... she has no more business playing a classic stage role than I have posing for the cover of Vogue."
"After Miss Julie" runs until Dec 6.
