But looking at the logo for Terrance Rattigan's play, Man and Boy, which opens tomorrow at the American Airlines Theatre, there is no such confusion. And even a cursory glance at the image tells you a lot about the play, even if you know nothing about it, like I didn't.
Of course, the details of the photo tell us specifics of the plot. The figure is either the person involved in the news article, or is connected somehow to that person - his boss? an investigator? Hmm, the bit of news photo that you can see confirms that the man in the fedora is the man that made headlines. And the headline really tells the rest: "Financier Sought in Scandal."
But given the amount of information the excellent photo gives, as well as its style, maybe keeping the title a mystery is actually a selling point. One thing is for sure, though. The image and Frank Langella's presence in it pretty much rules out that Man and Boy has anything to do with those nasty sites you can find by Googling!
