See it if you are a fan of Albee and his themes. Great performances.
Don't see it if you prefer faster paced shows.
See it if You're a fan of Glen Close or the other stars in the show.
Don't see it if You like slow moving or overly wordy shows.
See it if you like great acting with superb direction. One of my fav Albee works, the other who's afraid. A must see with great actors.
Don't see it if Albee is not for everyone, so do some research on Albee first to see if he is for you.
See it if I was so disappointed in DB. GClose was dull! No one could lift the show above her dead weight. I wanted one of the many drinks poured!
Don't see it if Albee creates fascinating situations and characters, but this production had no life. Not enjoyable.
See it if You love Edward Albee, no matter how weak the production.
Don't see it if You don't like Albee and can't sit still for a three hour play.
See it if You want to see the actors in it and are interested in the play. Beautiful set.
Don't see it if Don't want to see a dated slow drama
See it if Of course the performances were great, as was the writing.
Don't see it if This play is dated, deals with the problems of self-indulgent people. I didn't find it relevant to today. For me, it was a big who cares.
See it if you love glenn close
Don't see it if you hate a play with little comedy.
"Great Edward Albee, tepid production...although the play still dazzles with wit, gorgeous writing and the lurking terror of mortality, Director Pam MacKinnon spells things out here instead of letting Albee toy with us through suggestion and suspense. Nothing, alas, is delicate."
"As you would expect of these highly accomplished, multi-award-winning cast members, none of them are bad. But they’re giving us the play, instead of living it."
"Pam MacKinnon directs this solid revival with a keen ear for the curling, teasing rhythms of Albee’s ornate lines, and the performances are top-notch...this Pulitzer winner still stings and sings."
"Whether audiences are encountering A Delicate Balance for the first time or for reappraisal, watching the six supremely accomplished actors in this cast bite into their roles is thrilling."
"MacKinnon’s feisty if occasionally restless revival makes intriguing work of Albee. The production can feel like it’s oscillating speeds, but the constant is shimmering character work, and why wouldn’t you expect that from such a cast of heavy-hitters?"
"A Delicate Balance is no play for sissies...a brilliantly constructed if ultimately unfathomable play that only Edward Albee can get away with writing."
Things finally become interesting, even zany, in the second scene of the second act. Until then, though, “A Delicate Balance” comes across like a dramatically static rewrite of “Virginia Woolf” with rather less drinking and much less cursing."
"Albee's gift to humanity, you might say: a pleasurable three acts of watching others teeter on the brink, which always helps you last another day on terra firma yourself."
