Review – Dan Cody’s Yacht

The Manhattan Theatre Club has mounted a new play by Anthony Giardina that is interesting but ultimately hollow.  The title is a reference to a fleeting incident in The Great Gatsby about the desire to gain riches and the price sometimes necessary to succeed.  What you are willing to do to reach success and help your children are explored through the evening but the arguments are stilted and ultimately not satisfying.  The concept is interesting and the dialogue true to life but the debate does not become compelling. The performances are first rate and the scenery design quite interesting.  I hope the script continues to be developed as there is the heart of a good play here.
