Dominic West as Butley in Simon Gray’s “Butley” at the Duchess Theatre, London.
To be blunt, West stunk. The whole production stunk.
West is uglier than sin, which did not contribute to our enjoyment of the afternoon.
The theater was practically empty the afternoon we saw “Butley”. The many unoccupied seats were exceptionally well-deserved.
The production has closed since we attended the August 4 matinee.
