See it if Great acting by the 3 leads. Powerful show. Sound, lighting and set super. Great audience. Arthur Miller is a treasure. ALSO

Good set, Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Uneven acting

See it if an Arthur Miller fan; like shows about families with hidden secrets; deception, guilt, resolution.

Don't see it if you want a cohesively acted play. Not everyone seems on the same page. Some lapses in believability mar the 2nd act.

Also Still, the play held my interest. I saw an early preview​. Actors stil... Read more Read less

Mesmerizing, Pertinent and resonant, Miller at his best and most human, Absolutely must-see theatre, Gripping

See it if you enjoy slow-yet-steady-building dramas that grip, throttle, and destroy you by the end; you want to see Arthur Miller at his most real.

Don't see it if you need frothy, unthinking fair that won’t haunt you afterward; looking for pure entertainment; or are triggered by war talk and gunshots.

Also This is my first time seeing Arthur Miller’s All My Sons live and, aft... Read more Read less

Riveting, Profound, Great acting, Wonderful sets, Absorbing

See it if you want to see some terrific acting (Bening/Letts/Walker) in a resonant Miller play. Even knowing the ending, I was still drawn in.

Don't see it if color-blind family relationships create a problem for you. It is a tad distracting to meet Ann's brother. But I did let it go.

Benning & letts!, Classic, Impressive lighting & set, Great writing, Melodramatic tragedy

See it if You want to see a fine production of Miller's classic, melodramatic tragedy. Solid acting and directing -- Letts and Benning shine.

Don't see it if You want an uplifting, light evening in the theatre. This is heavy family stuff.

Also The Ibsen inspiration in Miller's script is palpable.

"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...
