Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you like Arthur Miller and have never seen this before. I wasn't as moved as I'd expected to be except by Chris Keller.

Don't see it if you only like musicals or comedies. This is neither. It remains timely & devastating.

Overrated, Disappointing

See it if you like seeing stars on stage.

Don't see it if you're expecting to see brilliant staging and great acting all around.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if You appreciate Arthur Miller and great acting. Tracy Letts and Annette Benning are excellent as the parents.

Don't see it if You have no interest in a story taking place in 1947. These characters go through a lot of turmoil- it is not a happy play.

90
Intelligent, Resonant, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want an old beautifully written Miller play that stands up to time and is still relevant with an outstanding cast

Don't see it if you are not into serious drama and are looking for something light and do not have the patience for a three act play.

Also This revival of Arthur Millers play is a beautifully staged production... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Great acting

See it if You love Annette Benning and/or a rather slow story of a dysfunctional family

Don't see it if You expect a deeply involved or edge of the seat excitement. Was a good story w/good acting but I expected better entertainment factor

90
Engaging, Entertaining, Excellent direction, Great acting

See it if an excellent, moving production in which the nearly flawless and seemingly effortless acting draws you in

Don't see it if the plot does wobble a teeny bit here and there, but the direction and acting make that flaw insignificant

77
Slow, Relevant, Great staging, Great acting, Cliched

See it if you love Arthur Miller. Tracy Letts is superb, as are Bening and Walker. If you enjoy a relevant-to-our times, drama.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of blind-casting; it seemed unnecessary as it took place in the "forties". The character of Ann had nothing to do really.

90
Intense, Intelligent, Riveting, Resonant, Great acting

See it if you are interested in plays by Arthur Miller with a talented cast led Annette Bening and Tracy Letts. It is intense and absorbing.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy deep stories about family relationships, conflicts, and secrets.

Intelligent, Riveting, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you want to see an outstanding production of a classic American play with great acting. We don't get to see All My Sons on Bway that often.

Don't see it if you want to see a comedy or a musical.

Also A truly great production (the set is amazing) of a great play by Arthu... Read more Read less

See it if Seeing great actors and intelligent dialog should hold anyone s,interest

Don't see it if You like a like a lot of flash and pizzazz and have no recollection of the era when the play takes place

98
Scintillating and devastating

See it if you are an Arthur Miller fan and are in the mood for an issues play that is surprisingly resonant in this day and age.

Don't see it if you cannot countenance Miller's less than rosy representation of the seamier side of capitalism. (Boeing 737 MAX8 anyone?)

Also The three main leads are so strong that you feel you are eavesdropping... Read more Read less

Intense, Riveting, Masterful, Great writing, Great acting

See it if Annette Benning is great, but the entire cast is excellent in this show. Lots of twists and turns - and angst!

Don't see it if you're looking for laughs.

85
Profound, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You miss what theater once was, great writing, great acting with something to go home and think about

Don't see it if you are looking for 90 minutes with no intermission & pure fluff

78
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

"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...
