Scarlett Johansson's films earned a total of $210 million, the least of all the actors on the list for her roles in seven films, including the Woody Allen flicks Match Point, Scoop and Vicky Christina Barcelona.
The play itself got great reviews but, according to critics, Johansson is the real standout. She left quite an impression as 17-year-old niece Catharine.
The New York Times critic Ben Brantley praised the actress's "effortless" performance and liked that her acting skills, not her celebrity status, stood out. Brantley wrote, "Johansson melts into her character so thoroughly that her nimbus of celebrity disappears."
Washington Post writer Peter Marks thinks Johansson is extremely convincing as an naive, young girl. He writes, "the surprising achievement belongs to Johansson, who proves to be capable of far more than collaborating in eyebrow-raising star casting. She's got the broad vowels and engaging innocence for Catherine."
The revival play will run for fourteen weeks.
