‘1984’ on Broadway Strikes a Chord With a Polarized America

Recommended Posts

It is the small things that pass you by unnoticed. Like this 22 connection!

An import of the West End adaptation of George Orwell’s1984,” which opened last week on Broadway at the Hudson Theater, is offering American audiences a window into life under a totalitarian regime.

A new Broadway production of George Orwell’s landmark novel “1984” opened at the Hudson Theater on June 22 after a successful run on the West End in London. The media hype around the Broadway production has largely centered on audience reactions to the adaptation’s depictions of torture, which, aside from the prerecorded murder of a thought criminal that is shown on a video screen towards the beginning of the production, will be bearable for the average theatergoer. The real torture on Broadway will take place down the street from the Hudson Theater when Michael Moore’s one-man show opens at the Belasco Theater at the end of July.


It's kinda like rubbing it in our faces!
