With the opening of It's Only a Play tomorrow, critics will begin to release their reviews of the Broadway production.
Considering that the plot of the show centers around the anticipation of opening night reviews, how does the cast of It's Only a Play feel about reading their own reviews?
Rupert spoke to Playbill on this topic, saying:
"No. I don't read them, no. I'm quite scared of them. I mean, the last play I did — it's such a big thing… They have so much power as well, so it does scare me to read them. I just wait for the quotes that come up on the marquee. But, I think it's a really interesting thing for an audience to witness...what it's like for the creative people to read reviews and the tension and misery it could cause."
While Rupert may not read his own reviews, we're excited to read, what must be, some glowing reviews for Rupert and the rest of the cast. May they break a leg at opening night tomorrow!
