Sienna Miller Gets Trashed In Broadway Reviews


Sienna Miller had her opening night on Broadway last night. She stars in the new production of After Miss Julie and if the critics had their way she wouldn't be there at all. The reviewer from The NY Times admitted he is a fan of Sienna Miller, couldn't wait to see her and this is all he could find to say nice about the performance.

"Ms Miller registers as a healthy, sane young woman with good diction, good posture and great legs. Commendable as these attributes are, they are of limited use in portraying a tautly wound, death-courting neurotic who is eaten alive by her own demons. If Julie is written as clashing chords of conflicted impulses, Ms Miller plays them like a novice at a piano, plunking down each note loudly and individually."

That isn't good.

Here is another from The Wall Street Journal.

"A model turned second-tier movie star, all she does is stalk around the stage striking vampy poses... she has no more business playing a classic stage role than I have posing for the cover of Vogue."

Next time Sienna you really need to portray a woman who is having an affair with a married man. You will win a Tony.

I hope this convinces her to give the acting thing a rest and try something far outside the public eye.

That's funny. I would have thought that her demons (and I suspect she has plenty) would have helped, but sounds like her vanity overshadows her acting.

I don't know why celebs always do Broadway. I guess they think they are making themselves look like "serious artistes". But it almost always backfires and they just prove they can't act for shit without editing and special effects.

Sienna is not doing Strindberg. Is After Miss Julie already considered a modern classic?
