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.

Fully absorbing, Tragic

See it if you are up for another staging of the play or certainly if you have never seen it and you like serious drama

Don't see it if Tense, protracted family dramas are not of interest to you; you will be turned off by the period setting

Also Because of time constraints I tend to not see things I have seen befor... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Absorbing, Relevant, Great acting

See it if Are a fan of Annette or Tracy. Both performances were stellar and enough to compensate for the dated script. The story is still relevant

Don't see it if Looking for something uplifting or current. The first act does drag and some characters feel hollow.

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

Nearly perfect production of less than perfect arthur miller modern greek tragedy

See it if very well made play; outstanding Letts, Benning/O’Brien’s direction show how evil can co-exist w the commonplace

Don't see it if dated script w obvious anti-war & capitalist messages; ending should be devastating, isn't

Also (a) Parallels between Germany & America: It seems less than coincident... Read more Read less

Profound, Intense, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if Looking for well acted, powerful okay. Great performances especially by Letts and Benning. Plot keeps the audience interested throughout

Miller done well, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if Not my favorite play, but this is a strong production with terrific actors. Worth seeing just for the performances.

Don't see it if You don't like Miller...or only enjoy the avant guard.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Profound, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you enjoy classic Hollywood dramas. This is like watching a 1940s-era film playing out on stage. It’s a slow burn, but ends with a bang.

Don't see it if You don't like family dramas, or period pieces, or themes that are a bit heavy handed

Dated, Thought-provoking, Challenging

See it if Powerful Bening & Walker. Miller's play wrestles with big ideas: loyalties, sacrifice, the compromises we make, the ideals we aim for.

Don't see it if A play that telegraphs it's punches, but still hits hard. It's very serious stuff, and relatively humorless.

Also Because he was so highly regarded I think we hold Arthur Miller to a h... Read more Read less

Intense, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if Arthur Miller classic. Amazing acting. Makes you lost in the story.

Great performances from all three leads in spite of a very sick slow first act. colorblind casting confounds the play

See it if Want to see a really good production of a classic play with some great performances but with a very slow first act

Don't see it if You don’t have the patience to get through an old fashion play with a very slow first act.

83
Intense, Riveting, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting

See it if Letts, Bening and Walker give terrific performances. Seeing an early work by one of America’s best playwrights is thrilling.

Don't see it if Strange blocking. During important sections, actors deliver their speeches with their backs to the audience.

83
Story builds, Resonant, Great acting

See it if Insidious evil of story and it’s snowballing effect still relevant. Annette Bening’s performance was great. It’s a drama that builds.

Don't see it if Somehow the ending didn’t feel emotionally devastating enough. Still worthwhile, relevant story. Letts oddly fitting resembled Cheney!
