Slow, Cliched, Great acting

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.

Absorbing, Indulgent, Great writing, Relevant, Profound

See it if you are a fan of Arthur Miller and want to see one of his most profound works. Diverse casting also gives it fresh and new life.

"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...
