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.
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.
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 The play seems outdated.Tracy Letts disappoints but Walker great.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.
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
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
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
