Zach Braff - Critics Unimpressed With Zach Braff's West End Debut

SCRUBS star Zach Braff has been hit with a slew of bad reviews after his debut appearance on London's West End stage.
Britain's leading theatre critics were less than impressed when the curtain went up at a press showing of All New People, which Braff also wrote, on Tuesday (28Feb12).
Michael Billington of The Guardian newspaper called the production a "muddled, meandering affair that reeks of self-gratification", while The Times' Libby Purves declared it "the most aimless, pointless play I have ever seen".
In The Independent's critique, Paul Taylor wrote that Braff "is still writing in the rhythms of television sitcom where the wisecrack and its instant gratifications predominate over longer-term goals".
However, Braff did receive a four-star review from the Daily Telegraph's Charles Spencer, who praised the show's blend of "the comic and the poignant" and said it "deserves to prosper".
Spencer added, "This 90-minute piece never outstays its welcome."
All New People, which was staged at New York's Second Stage Theatre without Braff in the cast last year (11), centres around a man contemplating suicide on his 35th birthday.
