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 appreciate the craftiness of Miller and a heavy dose of Greek fate. A well-architected, inevitable tragedy with some resonance.
Don't see it if Maybe this production, or just the era of the writing, but although I was touched, I was never moved. The concerns here seem far away.
See it if If you like Arthur Miller's work. Two good actors but not convincing as far a married. Good set and c ou costumes.
Don't see it if Jack o'Brien d ou es not do a good job moving the characters around in this sho w. The last production was much better. Bening yells 2 much.
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 are a die hard Miller fan, a fan of Annette Bening (she is the best thing about it) or if you like your revivals to be museum pieces
Don't see it if You like fresh takes on revivals or coherent acting (each seemed to be acting in a different play).
See it if With a mostly spectacular cast, the direction falters on one of my favorite Miller plays. If you have not see it before go.
Don't see it if You have seen other productions. Despite Benning and Letts, the show is poorly directed with no vision. Even the final moment rings false.
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.
See it if The acting was extraordinary. The biggest surprise was Annette Bening. The entire ensemble was outstanding. Mezmerizing. Do not miss
Don't see it if This is theatre at its best. It is a show for people who love serious drama, classic theatre. There are no laughs or music.
