It's Only a Review: Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and More Remember Their Negative Reviews Over the Years

We quizzed the cast of Broadway's It's Only a Play on the worst things ever said about them in print.

You only remember the bad reviews. Or so says the cast of Broadway's It's Only a Play. In the spirit of Terrence McNally's comedy about actors anxiously awaiting their opening-night reviews, we asked cast members Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and F. Murray Abraham, and director Jack O'Brien and playwright McNally himself, to recall the worst review they've ever gotten. Could Lane really have been a "rank amateur who should never be allowed on the stage"? We find that hard to believe.
