Intense, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if Well written, epic themes, heart-wrenching solid family and socially relevevant drama.

Don't see it if You've seen a really great production of it. Can appear rather melodramatic and supporting parts can be cartoonish.

Searing, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting, Depressing

See it if you want to see an excellent revival by one of the greatest American playwrights of the 20th century. Powerful acting. It hit me hard.

Don't see it if you prefer plays that are happy, peppy, and bursting with love! This is a painful and sad show. The American dream has gone awry.

Great writing, Edgy, Profound, Masterful, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy Miller plays. Similar to Death of a Salesman. While acting good with strong leads, yet felt a little weak in presentation.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy older plays that take time to weave the story so that all pieces fit together. Story dated but still contemporary.

Resonant, Relevant, Profound, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if This classic play holds so much truth in today’s unethical political climate. Saving ones wealth over “all his sons”.

Don't see it if If a 3 act drama is too much for one to sit Thur FYI use hearing aids to block out stupid people who talk and eat during perfirmances.AGAIN!

Also The cast comes with highly crafted acting skills and Interesting color... Read more Read less

Dark, Intelligent, Clunky acting, Great writing, Intense

See it if you want to see the legendary Bening, albeit overacting and maybe even miscast in the role. Father and son were powerful together. Great set

Don't see it if u have superlative expectations. I didn't. I liked it. Race blind casting is weird for me. Racially different siblings in 1950s middle USA?

Masterful, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see Arthur Miller's masterpiece brilliantly performed by a stellar cast.

Don't see it if you prefer a more lighthearted play - this is drama at it's best.

83
Great performances from all three leads in spite of a very sick slow first act. colorblind casting confounds the play

See it if Want to see a really good production of a classic play with some great performances but with a very slow first act

Don't see it if You don’t have the patience to get through an old fashion play with a very slow first act.

75
Relevant, Great acting

See it if it's a classic play and searing family drama. Acting is wonderful, especially Tracy Letts.

Don't see it if There's lots of exposition, with the anticipated explosion in the last ten minutes. If it weren't for the fine acting it would be slow.

Also The contrasting ways the characters deal with loss is interesting, and... Read more Read less

Overrated, Great lead performances. great set design. clunky plot--especially in last act.

See it if You want to see a terrific performance by Annette Bening and a really good one by Tracy Letts. You're interested in Miller's canon.

Don't see it if You want something fresh without moralizing and clumsy plot devices. You want strong acting all around.

Also I have a like/not so much relationship with Arthur Miller's plays. I u... Read more Read less

See it if you like Arthur Miller and have never seen this before. I wasn't as moved as I'd expected to be except by Chris Keller.

Engaging, Entertaining, Excellent direction, Great acting

See it if an excellent, moving production in which the nearly flawless and seemingly effortless acting draws you in

Don't see it if the plot does wobble a teeny bit here and there, but the direction and acting make that flaw insignificant

Don't see it if you're looking for laughs.

"O’Brien’s literal-minded production does not make a resonant case for the drama today...Ms. Bening goes deepest of the four leads in exploring the muck at the bottom of her character’s personality. She also has terrific technique...But the opacity of the production overall means we still can’t r...

"There is a real and precious thing at the center of 'All My Sons.' It is the trio of Tracy Letts, Annette Bening and Benjamin Walker...All three are believable in every detail—blockbuster actors dedicated to small, unshowy connections to one another. In scene after scene, they do wonders. Around...

"The play’s glaring issues go unexamined...Miller’s not a wit, nor is he particularly agile with seeming small talk or elegant exposition...What does stick out—over and over again—as the play ploddingly establishes its circumstances, is its blithe sexism...While Letts and Walker eventually get to...
