Marie Mullen won the best actress Tony for the original Broadway production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane as a tortured daughter. Now she has returned almost 20 years later to play the tormentor — her cruel, selfish mother. Her remarkable performance at the Mark Taper Forum, harrowing and yet oddly empathetic, is matched by the rest of this dazzling cast in this hilariously vicious revival of Martin McDonagh's raven-black comedy.
