Week in New York Theater Reviews

Nora 1 Jean Lichty and Todd Gearhart


“A Doll’s House” has 11 characters and, as presented in a production at BAM last year for example, ran nearly three hours (including intermission.) “Nora,” Ingmar Bergman’s adaptation, has just five characters and, in the Cherry Lane production, lasts about half as long (without an intermission.) This seems better suited to the casual contemporary theatergoer …Of course, streamlining the cast puts more pressure on the remaining performers. All are fine in this production; none are consistently thrilling.
