Staged Confederacy of Dunces Reviews


I’m typically very sceptical about a great piece of art being adapted for another modality and though the reviewers don’t fully grasp CoD, I think this shows. Burma cynical? Only the shallowest of readings of the book would suggest that but if he comes over as such in the play, then we have a disjuncture. The New York Times review is the most insightful, most regurgitate the same old memes. (H/T to fellow CoD nut Robert Bugg for several of these links)
