REVIEW: Ripcord, New York City Centre Stage 1 ✭✭✭

Ripcord at New York City Centre Stages

Holland Taylor is in exceptional form as the coiled, steely Abby. She manages to humanise a thoroughly inhuman creature, making her likeable despite Abby’s more loathsome attributes. This is a real testament to Taylor’s finely honed skills – she truly makes something out of nothing. In particular, in one key scene, late in the play, she is marvellously unsentimental when the text (and the audience the night I was there) seems to beg for maudlin excess.
