The Big Love (Apr 1991) Tracey Ullman - Plymouth Theatre

"For the first time in my life, I was absolutely speechless," says Florence Aadland, the Hollywood mother played by Tracey Ullman in "The Big Love," as she recalls her 15-year-old daughter's fateful night of violent sex with Errol Flynn in 1957. If "The Big Love" is any indication, the first time Florence Aadland was speechless was also the last. In this one-woman play that has washed ashore on Broadway at the Plymouth Theater, Ms. Ullmann natters on for two hours, a not inconsiderable proportion of which is devoted to joking descriptions of rape. She refers to the penis by two different affectionate nicknames in the first half-hour alone. ' "The Big Love" was directed and co-written (with Brooke Allen) by Jay Presson Allen, the creator of "Tru." Apparently its mission is to do for Ms. Ullman and Florence Aadland what "Tru" did for Robert Morse and Truman Capote. Like Mr. Morse, Ms. Ullman needs a career break but no introduction, at least to those who have admired this young English comic actress on television, in films ("I Love You to Death") and in last summer's "Taming of the Shrew" in Central Park. But who, you ask, is Florence Aadland? In 1991, actress-comedian Tracey Ullman played the part of Florence Aadland in a one woman show based on the book.
