Reviews: “Dorian Gray” Doesn’t Click


Matthew Bourne is one of the world’s most successful choreographers: a cross-dressed “Swan Lake” put him on the map in the U.S., and his work on “Mary Poppins” continues nightly on Broadway. Bourne’s latest piece, “Dorian Gray” (pictured), an updated version of the Oscar Wilde book about a man who doesn’t age, has just opened at the Edinburgh festival. The run sold out long ago, but the reviews — read them here and here — aren’t pretty. No word yet whether “Dorian Gray,” which plays London next month, will come to the United States.
