And, as written by Foote and played with unexpected restraint by Ms. Buckley, she’s a precise and cleareyed study in the arrogance of the entitled rich. The scenes in which Gertrude apologizes — sort of — for her drunken bad behavior are ruthlessly well observed. You realize that in Harrison, being rich means never having to say you’re sorry."<br /><br />From <a href="http://m.hollywoodreporter.com/review/old-friends-theater-review-628283?utm_source=dlvr.it&amp;utm_medium=twitter" target="_blank">The Hollywood Reporter</a>: "Buckley is the undeniable standout as the volcanic Gertrude, whose pathetic neediness is vividly demonstrated by her alcohol-fueled rages. But the rest of the talented ensemble is equally fine, especially Foote, a veteran performer of her father’s work, who is deeply moving as the quietly dignified and unexpectedly strong-willed Sybil, and the always wonderful Smith, whose venerable career includes an early film appearance opposite James Dean in East of Eden." <br /><br />From <a href="http://www.broadway.com/buzz/171726/thumbs-up-betty-buckley-the-spirited-cast-of-the-old-friends-ignite-horton-footes-drama/" target="_blank">Broadway.com</a>: "The magnetic Betty Buckley, almost never seen on stage without a highball glass in her hand, manages to be both vile and surprisingly sympathetic as a conniving, needy socialite who throws tantrums, makes false promises and otherwise manipulates everyone she sees.<br />&nbsp;Veanne Cox is delightfully snotty as Buckley's frenemy, a rich and bored housewife who taunts her drunken husband (Adam LeFevre) and flirts with any man in sight."<br /><br />From <a href="http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/theater/old-friends-review-post-mortem-horton-foote-1.6056355" target="_blank">Newsday</a>: "Betty Buckley, finally back with a character worthy of her, is wonderful as the rich, monstrous widow, matched greed for grasping greed by Veanne Cox. The great Lois Smith brings sweet gusto to the abused matriarch, while Hallie Foote plays disappointment proudly in director Michael Wilson's impeccable production."<br /><br />Don’t miss the chance to see Buckley's triumphant return to the New York stage in <i>The Old Friends</i>, now through October 6.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9YUztAIBTJQ/UjNFS5ZPjfI/AAAAAAAAOto/Ppb7-fSN2Eo/s1600/Old-Friends.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="252" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9YUztAIBTJQ/UjNFS5ZPjfI/AAAAAAAAOto/Ppb7-fSN2Eo/s400/Old-Friends.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><br /><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PTZLiTTy2aM/UjJMs-eyPXI/AAAAAAAAOtY/vTaKt8OPS8M/s1600/BuckleyCox.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PTZLiTTy2aM/UjJMs-eyPXI/AAAAAAAAOtY/vTaKt8OPS8M/s400/BuckleyCox.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br />From the <a href="http://theater.nytimes.com/2013/09/13/theater/reviews/the-old-friends-a-horton-foote-play-in-and-of-the-60s.html?ref=theater&amp;_r=0" target="_blank">New York Times</a>: "Gertrude is the grandmaster of such gambits.
