Miller Stung By Broadway Reviews

SIENNA MILLER's Broadway debut has been hit by a string of bad reviews - with critics mauling her performance in AFTER MISS JULIE.
The actress stars in Patrick Marber's adaptation of the August Strindberg classic Miss Julie, alongside fellow Brit Jonny Lee Miller.
But on opening night on Thursday (22Oct09), it was the Alfie star's performance which came under the spotlight, with critics labelling her "second rate".
Ben Brantley, of the New York Times, writes, "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."
Wall Street Journal theatre critic Terry Teachout adds, "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."
After Miss Julie runs until 6 December (09).
