The Little Foxes

Riches abound for ticket holders who catch Ivo van Hove’s brutally incisive revival of Lillian Hellman’s 1939 family drama. Once again, the Flemish director partners with Elizabeth Marvel to peel the withered, tradition-carbuncled skin off a classic. Working with a rock-star cast, Van Hove doesn’t deconstruct the text so much as strip it bare and blast it at top volume; Marvel’s portrayal of Regina Gibbons gives full scope to the character’s cruelty, but shows her just as bullied and exploited as the black servants who maintain a genteel memory of Old Dixie.—David Cote
