Melodramatic, Disappointing, Absorbing, Dated, Gorgeous set

See it if you want to see this play from the 20th Century American Theater canon performed, and if you're curious to see Bening's return to the stage

Don't see it if you're looking for dramatic fireworks matching our kinetic-brained era. The play's 70 years old. Its pace and moral quandaries reflect it

Also I really wanted to like this production of "All My Sons." I'd anticipa... Read more Read less

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, 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

78
Thought-provoking, Intense, Great acting, Dated, Absorbing

See it if you want intelligent theater well acted. While the details are dated the concepts are relevant to today's loss of morality and conviction.

Don't see it if you do not want to think but rather wish to be entertained. There is no spectacle here. One also has to be prepared for raw emotion

78
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 The play seems outdated.Tracy Letts disappoints but Walker great.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.

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

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.

77
Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if you enjoy marriage dramas/black comedy

Don't see it if want something flashy and over the top.

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
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.

75
Dated, Slow, Great acting

See it if great acting is more important than a dated, self righteous play.

Don't see it if you are looking for something updated and relevant

75
Relevant, Great acting

See it if it's a classic play and searing family drama. Acting is wonderful, especially Tracy Letts.

Don't see it if There's lots of exposition, with the anticipated explosion in the last ten minutes. If it weren't for the fine acting it would be slow.

Also The contrasting ways the characters deal with loss is interesting, and... Read more Read less

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
Overrated, Great lead performances. great set design. clunky plot--especially in last act.

See it if You want to see a terrific performance by Annette Bening and a really good one by Tracy Letts. You're interested in Miller's canon.

Don't see it if You want something fresh without moralizing and clumsy plot devices. You want strong acting all around.

Also I have a like/not so much relationship with Arthur Miller's plays. I u... Read more Read less

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
Great writing, Great acting, Dated, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if you love old fashioned American dramas performed in an old fashioned way

Don't see it if you don’t like revivals
