'Billy & Ray' Off Broadway Review: The Duo Behind 'Double Indemnity'

'Billy & Ray' Off Broadway Review: The Duo Behind 'Double Indemnity'
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS

OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

“Billy & Ray” is a new play about film director Billy Wilder and writer Raymond Chandler making each other crazy as they thrash out their script for “Double Indemnity” in 1943.

Movie buffs who are fond of “Double Indemnity” may be entertained by this play by Mike Bencivenga that just opened at the Vineyard Theater. People who do not know the film noir classic have no business being there, unless they are big fans of Vincent Kartheiser of “Mad Men” repute, who portrays Wilder.

Set mostly in Wilder’s snazzy office on the Paramount lot, the story observes the mismatched men as they try to adapt a lurid novel about sex and murder into a script that the film censors would allow.
