“Pal Joey”: My FT Review

paljoey21650-200x141Here’s my Financial Times review of “Pal Joey,” currently in revival on Broadway. It stars Stockard Channing and Matthew Risch (pictured). Money quote: “Risch stepped up to the Gene Kelly-originated part of Joey when the original lead, Christian Hoff, dropped out, and while Risch doesn’t quite achieve the pinnacle of Peter Gallagher in a 1995 New York concert revival, he is handsome, seductive, and a more-than-serviceable dancer. You understand why [Channing] would bed him and why she would shed him.”
