"Dark Good Looks... Mesmerizing"

This production may do the same for Mr. Hayden, whose square­‐shouldered, dark good looks recall the youthful Mr. Schell and whose poise and fervor as he mounts his increasingly persuasive defense are mesmerizing... And in Rolfe’s face­‐offs with his personal icon, Janning, who disdains any defense because he’s already found himself guilty, Mr. Hayden is facing off with an icon of his own. Neither the character nor the actor appears cowed.
