In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge—forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance, and post-war disenchantment across generations.
See it if you've never seen a production of this play. You would be better off to wait until the next revival. The last revival was only 11 years ago.
Don't see it if you don't like revivals that are superficial. The colorblind casting doesn't help. Jack O'Brien was a very poor choice for director.
See it if With a mostly spectacular cast, the direction falters on one of my favorite Miller plays. If you have not seen it before go.
Don't see it if You have seen other productions. Despite Benning and Letts, the show is poorly directed with no vision. Even the final moment rings false.
See it if and ONLY if you live to see any production of any Arthur Miller play.
Don't see it if you were hoping to see the glamorous Annette Bening from the movie Bugsy. SPOILER ALERT: She plays a distraught 1950's wife and mother.
See it if You want to see a classic play onstage, with good performances from the leads. The set is also gorgeous.
Don't see it if You want a fast-moving play. The first hour dragged for me, and I was not amazed with Annette Bening.
See it if You want to see great actors on stage, but not much else.
Don't see it if You want to see a dated direction. No clear point of view and a monotonous production lacking of rhythm
See it if Arthur Miller a classic drama that resonates today!
Don't see it if Having seen many productions of this play it may not live up to your expectations.
See it if You can put aside the 1940s view of women and connect to the Arthur Miller, father son obsession well acted by Bening, Letts, & Walker.
Don't see it if You don’t like Arthur Miller sometimes heavy-handed, yet still moving and resonant family drama.
See it if You are a die hard Miller fan, a fan of Annette Bening (she is the best thing about it) or if you like your revivals to be museum pieces
Don't see it if You like fresh takes on revivals or coherent acting (each seemed to be acting in a different play).
See it if I was disappointed with the script, direction and Annette Benning, she wasn’t bad but she wasn’t great. I was impressed by Tracy Letts.
Don't see it if you want to see something that feels fresh and full new ideas
See it if You can focus on the words of Miller
Don't see it if You want a production that brings out the depth and relevancy of the writing. It is uneven and only the third act is enjoyable.
See it if You gotta see Bening onstage again. Looking for that ole Miller magic. (hint: not there. You want to see Ben Walker's excellent acting job
Don't see it if You can't bear more "cross-cultural casting" which doesn't work at all. A creaky plot which is stretched to it's limit. Screaming actors.
See it if Rarely performed Arthur Miller play with Annette Bening back on Broadway. Once again Roundabout gives playgoers a beautiful set on stage.
Don't see it if Blind casting drives you nuts. How many plays and musicals now do this over and over again. This was talked about by many in attendance.
See it if you just love Arthur Miller. I loved Death of a Salesman, but not this one nor did I like A View from the Bridge. This was so drawn out.
Don't see it if you want action and a script that moves forward in a normal manner. It seemed to repeat thoughts and ideas ad nauseam. Annette was blah.
