BWW Review: THE WEATHERMAN, Park Theatre (https://www.broadwayworld.com/westend/article/BWW-Review-THE-WEATHERMAN-Park-Theatre-20190822)

Apparently Newman and his costar Mark Hadfield "deliver a set of exquisite performances," "with Newman quietly taking over every scene he's in." Also, "Newman exudes charisma with his quietly sophisticated portrayal." But would we expect less from him?

Wow - this review couldn't be more different from the previous if they actually set out to be:

The Weatherman review exploitative trash that fetishises male bravado (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/the-weatherman-review-exploitative-trash-that-fetishises-male-bravado-z6cmd6hlt)

But as we well know, there's no pleasing everyone...

But at least there's a photo of Newman...

The Weatherman, Park Theatre, review: channelling Pinter - and not always in a good way (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/theatre/what-to-see/weatherman-park-theatre-review-channelling-pinter-not-always/)

Apparently this play is polarizing - either people like it or they don't...

But there's a different photo of Newman...
