In 'A Delicate Balance', Agnes (Glenn Close) and Tobias (John Lithgow), a long-married couple, must maintain their equilibrium as over the course of a weekend they welcome home their 36-year-old daughter after the collapse of her fourth marriage, and give shelter to their best friends, all the while tolerating Agnes’ alcoholic sister Claire. Tony-nominee Pam MacKinoon directs the Broadway revival.
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 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 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 probably just don't see it, even if you're a fan of Albee, and even despite the phenomenal cast.
Don't see it if you're on the fence about it. The first-rate cast does not help this from being a deeply confused and confusing production.
See it if You love strong performances and Albee's writing. It's a wonderful play.
Don't see it if you don't like slow plays or thinking plays. It's a play more for the mind.
See it if you want to see a great play from one of the best playwrights there is. A great uncomfortable drama.
Don't see it if you are looking for light entertainment.
See it if Beautifully mounted, well directed with outstanding talent, great energy and touching. Remarkable cast! The book was prettified.
Don't see it if if a production reflecting current problems is not interesting to you.
See it if You love powerful music with an absorbing story and incredible performances.
Don't see it if You do not like stripped down musical productions.
See it if you want to see amazing performers and are willing to look past the vagueness of Albee's plot.
Don't see it if you don't like Albee's writing. I think you really have to be an Albee fan to love this, though the performers are fantastic.
See it if you love an understated drama, love bickering families, love Albee or any of the amazing actors in it, have a tolerance for long monologues.
Don't see it if you can't stand improbably long monologues or repressed drama.
See it if you're a fan of albee, drama, and great actors
Don't see it if you prefer light, fluffy entertainment or to leave the theatre on a high
See it if you are a huge play buff and tend to go see shows because they feature big name actors.
Don't see it if you don't like shows in which the characters complain and bicker endlessly. My least favourite show to date.
See it if This is one of Albee's best works. The performances this time don't quite connect, however. A disappointment, but a noble effort
Don't see it if you're not willing to support important work, even if flawed
See it if You want to see a vibrant, energetic production with great singing.
Don't see it if You want to understand every word. Some lyrics and lines difficult to understand.
See it if I saw the original production 4 times, this scaled down version is amazing and much better. 3rd time and Heather Headley/Cynthia amazing!
Don't see it if you don't want to cry or be affected by a powerful performance
