James McLure

Is there anything new a work about codes of masculinity such as this has to offer us in ? And yet, by virtue of simply treating it as a period piece, Joe John Battista's new production of Lone Star , running at 13th Street Repertory Theater through June 16, does hold a certain sociological and historical fascination. And when the text itself is performed as sensitively as it is here, especially by lead actor Matt de Rogatis, it's enough to temporarily pulverize any reservations one might have about the play's dated qualities. The only major points of drama in McLure's play are Cletis's offstage destruction of Roy's pink Thunderbird convertible and Ray's revelation of a long-held secret involving Roy's wife. But for Roy, these developments have the effect of plunging him into existential despair, since his car and his marriage were the only things keeping him psychologically afloat in his postwar fog. The surface of Lone Star remains light throughout, the stakes made to feel low as we do little more than witness these three men hang out, pump each other up, and verbally and physically spar.
