Anyone who has been part of an acting class in the last three decades has probably encountered at least sections of John Patrick Shanley’s play DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA. Its emotion-filled confrontations and small cast make it ideal for scene study. Originally produced off-Broadway in 1984, the two-character drama concerns Danny and Roberta, two lonely and troubled people who meet in a bar in the Bronx, hook up and spend the next twenty-four hours deciding if they’d rather get closer, run away, or beat the hell out of each other. Actors Juliet Landau and Matthew J. Williamson and […]Read On »
On the heels of “The Big Bang Job,” “The San Lorenzo Job” has Nate (Timothy Hutton) and company heading in pursuit of Damian Moreau (Goran Visnjic) to the title island nation, where the dictatorial President Ribera (Alastair Duncan) holds sway. San Lorenzo has no extradition treaties and Moreau bought Ribera his position, so it’s a safe haven for the criminal – or so he thinks. With an election coming but U.N. inspectors thick on the ground, Ribera has jailed all of his opposition, including Eliot’s (Christian Kane) old friend Gen. Flores – who refuses to be sprung from prison without his men.
As Season Three of LEVERAGE has had a through-line of Nate (Timothy Hutton) et al being urged/blackmailed by a mysterious Italian (Elisabetta Canalis) to go after mysterious, extremely powerful international criminal Damian Moreau, it stands to reason that the season finale would bring our team and the villain face to face. Director Marc Roskin and writers Chris Downey & Geoffrey Thorne have crafted an episode that has not only the customary LEVERAGE intrigue and impersonations, but also some surprising (for this show) gunplay and fatalities.
