Yvonne Strahovski Gets Rave Reviews For Broadway's 'Golden Boy' Debut

Broadway's 'Golden Boy' and Dexter special guest star, Yvonne Strahovski both received great reviews after last night's debut. Hit the jump, to read some of the rave reviews from some of the biggest websites.

USA Today:
Those who aren't impressed by such things will surely be moved by the broken look on the face of Tony Shalhoub, cast as Joe's anguished dad; or how Yvonne Strahovski's Lorna struggles to keep her own torment buried behind a cool facade.
The icily beautiful Ms. Strahovski, making a striking Broadway debut, brings out the velvety heart beating under Lorna’s cool, hardened-steel exterior.

Yvonne Strahovski shines as the sullen Lorna, holding her own in a man’s world with engaging feistiness and heartbreaking in her inability to take the chance of being with the man she loves.

Entertainment Weekly: 
And then, of course, there's a girl: Lorna, played by the excellent Yvonne Strahovski, who looks like Carole Lombard and talks like Carmela Soprano. A self-professed ''tramp from Newark,'' she's Tom's mistress and Joe's sweetheart and plenty smart enough to know the trouble that puts her in.

Singling out other cast members seems a disservice to the flawless ensemble as a whole. But Mastrogiorgio finds subtle shadings in Tom’s mix of savvy and insecurity; Crivello oozes quiet, elegant menace; the invaluable Burstein makes Tokio an uncommonly tender figure in a harsh milieu; and Strahovski, an Australian actress best known for her television work in NBC’s Chuck and Showtime’s Dexter, makes a striking Broadway debut. Playing a role originated by Frances Farmer, Strahovski looks smashing in Zuber’s sharp ‘30s suits, nailing both the brittle façade and the longing for genuine feeling that grows as Lorna is pulled between Tom and Joe.
