About the show

Award-winning actors Annette Bening and Tracy Letts return to Broadway in the play that launched Arthur Miller as the moral voice of the American Theater. More…

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.

Intense, Great acting, Disappointing, Absorbing

See it if you are a Miller fan, are a WWII head or enjoy seeing great actors in a staid production.

Don't see it if you are expecting anything beyond what's on the page. This production could be from the 50s.

Intelligent, Great writing, Disappointing

See it if You have never seen a production of All My Sons. You love Annette Benning or Tracy Letts.

Don't see it if You are expecting a "must see" production of a classic play.

Also This production did not live up to it's potential. The acting is uneve... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Dated, Slow, Resonant

See it if if you want to see Annette Benning in a challenging role. The play seems outdated.Tracy Letts disappoints but Walker great. Dull direction.

Don't see it if So disappointed in this reveal. The set, the direction and Tracy Letts all were uninspiring. Benning does her best.

78
Slow, Dated, Overrated, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if if you want to see one of Arthur Miller's plays.

Don't see it if you want to see a classic play with new life.

Slow, Relevant, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you're a fan of Annette Benning who is brilliant here; same for Tracy Letts; you want to see colorblind casting, I applaud it, & the script!

Don't see it if You've seen it; you don't have 3 hrs to kill; you want more than old-fashioned theatre onstage today, you are bored by realism and 4th walls

77
Solid, Slow, Resonant, Great acting

See it if Well done version of this Arthur Miller work. Good acting but a slow build to an intense climax.

Don't see it if You don’t like serious plays.

77
Dated, Talky, Ambitious

See it if You love classics and want to see a by-the-book interpretation. Also if you want to see a true star (Benning) in the flesh.

Don't see it if You want a story without holes and a very tidy, but sad, ending.

75
Great acting, Dated, Intense

See it if You like dramatic plays that unfold progressively - just when you think things can’t get worse ... well...

Don't see it if Annette Bening was definitely amazing but felt a little slow and unimaginative in staging

75
Thought-provoking, Intense, Great writing

See it if You enjoy an old-fashioned (however, still very timely), well-made play that will grab your attention.

Don't see it if You like lighter fare, or want some laughs.

Also This is a capable production with two very fine performances from Benj... 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?

75
Relevant, Intelligent, Great writing, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy a well-acted, handsomely-mounted view of the American Dream that still feels relevant

Don't see it if you don't like Arthur Miller or if you don't like to see the underside of the American Dream

75
Slow, Intense, Dated

See it if You need to add to your classics. Dialogue and attitude to women dated but searing family relations timeless.

Don't see it if You can’t suspend disbelief on certain casting and legal matters.

72
Slow, Relevant, Great writing, Dated, Entertaining

See it if you desire a classic slow-burning drama with a great performance by Bening (as well as an overwrought one by Walker) in a standard staging.

Don't see it if you don't care for slow, exposition-heavy dramas that are clunky in spots & often overwritten. This play is from another era & it shows.

71
Slow, Intense, Great acting

See it if you are a fan of Arthur Miller; Annette Benning; Tracy Letts...

Don't see it if you want a fast moving show...

Slow, Resonant, Intense, Dated

See it if you want to see Annette Benning onstage.

Don't see it if you're looking for a reinterpretation of this Miller classic.

Also It was a very by the number production that really didn't have anythin... Read more Read less

Intelligent, Clever, Entertaining, Dated, Intense

See it if you haven't seen the play before. The script is so good and the it's a by-the-book production that lets the script shine.

Don't see it if you have seen the play before. While the four lead actors are great, there's nothing really new being presented or offered.

70
Intelligent, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Relevant

See it if You like a conventional play about human nature and morals entertwined in family with tragic consequences...brilliant acting by Tracey Letts

Don't see it if You want to see a deep level of human emotion on stage.

70
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting

See it if You want to watch Annette Benning command that stage! If you like socially conscious work, this is good production of a classic.

Don't see it if You are bored with straight, narrative, classic works, or don't enjoy slow boils.

68
Overrated, Absorbing, Disappointing, Slow, Resonant

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.

65
Great writing, Great acting, Banal

See it if You want to see a great cast deliver the goods on a classic.

Don't see it if You like your revivals to reinvent or challenge material seen time and time again.

60
Slow, Community theatre level of production, Uneven, Insipid

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.

Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, But this production isn't great, The play is incredible.

See it if If you love Annette Benning. the play is a masterwork

Don't see it if It was a very meh production

Train wreck of a revival, Disappointing, Bad acting, Poorly-cast

See it if You want to see an Arthur Miller Play, but done poorly.

Don't see it if you can watch the old movie with Burt Lancaster and Edward G. Robinson.

Also Annette Bening acting is the worst thing about this production, she sc... Read more Read less
