“Grounded”: My FT Review

The Financial Times has posted my review of “Grounded,” a new play by George Brant off-Broadway, starring Anne Hathaway (pictured) as a drone pilot and directed by Julie Taymor. Bottom line: ‘Brant provides scant geopolitical context, and arguably this lack of facts helps to reinforce the soullessness of the pilot’s existence, but his writing style is a bit too staccato for my taste — a few developed anecdotes would have helped deepen the story emotionally. But Hathaway’s memorably kinetic performance is noteworthy in itself.’
