Haunted By The Past: Ann (Katie Holmes) and Chris (Patrick Wilson) try to move on from his brother’s disappearance in “All My Sons” (photo credit: Joan Marcus)
Lithgow and Wiest deliver knockout performances as grieving parents weighed down by a terrible secret. Wilson holds his own with the two acting veterans and has great chemistry with Holmes, who strikes just the right balance of heartfelt emotion and the kind of charm that only a glamorous bombshell can carry off.
“All My Sons” is also helped along by brilliant staging, with projected screen elements and haunting music effectively underscoring major plot points.
After the show, I joined the crowd of theatergoers hoping for a glimpse of the cast. Most of them stopped for pictures and autographs.
“All My Sons” takes its final bow on January 11th.
