Bond, Wolverine's Ho-Hum Play

Perhaps they should stick to escaping explosions. Hugh Jackman of Wolverine fame and Daniel Craig, better known as James Bond appear in the new play A Steady Rain which opened on Tuesday at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater. The New York Times is lukewarm on the whole performance, which it calls a "small, wobbly pedestal on which two gods of the screen may stand in order to be worshiped." While both were "just fine in their parts," as two friends from childhood on different sides of the law and in love with the same woman, the performances are hardly likely to help audiences forget about Wolverine or Mr. Bond.
