Brits relying on ‘Faith’

Blightly drama opens on B'way

Leave it to the Brits to elevate the discourse on the red carpet.

At Thursday’s opening-night party for the Broadway revival of “Faith Healer,” everyone — including thesps Ralph Fiennes, Ian McDiarmid, honorary Brit-for-the-night Cherry Jones and director Jonathan Kent — had thoughtful comments about Brian Friel‘s play.

Fiennes even busted out some Coleridge when describing the challenges of performing the play, a 2½-hour evening of interlocking monologues in which the actors never appear onstage together.

“I’m like the Ancient Mariner, crashing the wedding party with a story to tell,” he said.
