Gleaning details on *Behanding*

Posted on Mon, Feb 22, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Patrick Healy surveys Christopher Walken's career in the New York Times today. What comes across is Walken's remarkable insecurity and nervousness about his more than four decades as an actor. What doesn't come across is much about Martin McDonagh's play, now in previews on Broadway. (It runs March 4-June 6; visit In A Behanding in Spokane, Walken's character, Carmichael, lost his left hand 47 years ago. He encounters a couple of con artists (played by Anthony Mackie of The Hurt Locker and Zoe Kazan) who are willing to give him a hand, so to speak, by selling him one. The entire play takes place nearly in real time (in 90 mins.) and inside a hotel room -- so not much chance for local color there.
