Golden Boy is officially off and running on Broadway, and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive for the production over all and Yvonne Strahovski in particular.
The Hollywood Reporter posted their glowing review, paying special attention to Yvonne’s Broadway debut as Lorna:
Strahovski, an Australian actress best known for her television work in NBC’s Chuck and Showtime’s Dexter, makes a striking Broadway debut. Playing a role originated by Frances Farmer, Strahovski looks smashing in Zuber’s sharp ‘30s suits, nailing both the brittle façade and the longing for genuine feeling that grows as Lorna is pulled between Tom and Joe.
The icily beautiful Ms. Strahovski, making a striking Broadway debut, brings out the velvety heart beating under Lorna’s cool, hardened-steel exterior. Slinging Lorna’s tart wisecracks with the expertise of a 1930s B-movie star, she also manages to turn her borderline stereotypical character into a rounded human being who is almost as tortured by Joe’s plight as he is.
Yvonne Strahovski is New York City to prepare for her upcoming role in the revival of Golden Boy on Broadway. She’ll star opposite Tony Shaloub and Seth Numrich. Numrich stars as Joe, a promising violinist who is tempted to become a boxer; Shaloub plays Joe’s father; and Yvonne plays, Lorna Moon, Joe’s manager’s girlfriend who Joe falls for as well. Last night Yvonne, Seth, and Tony appeared at a photo call to promote the play, which begins previews on November 8 with opening night set for December 6. Golden Boy will be performed at the Belasco Theater, where the play was first presented in 1937.
