“You think people are dead but that’s not always the case.” This line from Florian Zeller’s The Height of the Storm captures all the mystery and intrigue of the new Broadway drama running at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Friedman Theatre. The 80-minute play examines the final years in a marriage that has lasted half a century, and what happens when one partner survives the other. A hit in London, the show is anchored by brilliant performances by three-time Olivier Award winner Eileen Atkins and two-time Tony and Olivier Award winner Jonathan Pryce. In the three clips below, get a look at the haunting piece and the stellar performances by stage greats Atkins & Pryce.
