Great writing, Great staging, Ambitious, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like intense family dramas with secrets revealed. Much in the genre of "Death of a Salesman", father and son(s) are the focus.

Don't see it if It can be quite distressing and depressing. While not "typical", it's a metaphor for overly ambitious fathers and projecting on to the son.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Cliched, Absorbing

See it if Anette and Tracy give good performances. Classic play done well. Can be moving and timely when at its best. Strong production.

Don't see it if Feels dated. Leads up to a "surprise" twist that isn't much of a surprise. Can be very slow. Basic, by-the-book production of a classic.

"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...
