Resonant, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Terrific staging with great leads in a rarely performed Miller play exploring greed,materialism and the terrible price paid - great Bening

Don't see it if It’s a tough play and the second pause intermission breaks the mood and momentum ; second their actors need to find their groove

Good set, Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Uneven acting

See it if an Arthur Miller fan; like shows about families with hidden secrets; deception, guilt, resolution.

Don't see it if you want a cohesively acted play. Not everyone seems on the same page. Some lapses in believability mar the 2nd act.

Also Still, the play held my interest. I saw an early preview​. Actors stil... Read more Read less

A bit stiff

See it if Bening is wonderful. Very moving story although the first act is slow and the message is driven home with the repetitiveness of a jackhammer

Don't see it if Thought they could have done more with the set and staging to open things up a bit and make it more interesting. Costumes misfired.

Also Gone are the days of the static, simple one set play. It may have been... Read more Read less

Poorly acted, Boring, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Disappointing

See it if you've never seen an Arthur Miller play and want to see a decent production of one. Or if you want to see a top-notch Annette Bening live.

Don't see it if you are hoping for a bold re-imagining of an Arthur Miller classic. This is a workmanlike production with inconsistent acting.

Also This is not a bad show, but it's certainly not an inspired one either.... Read more Read less

Great acting

See it if You admire the work of Arthur Miller. Riveting performances by Tracy Letts and Annette Bening.

Don't see it if You are distracted by uneven direction and weak performances by supporting players.

Also Annette Bening is the strongest element here. She deserves better than... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Great staging, Intense

See it if Rarely performed Arthur Miller play with Annette Bening back on Broadway. Once again Roundabout gives playgoers a beautiful set on stage.

Don't see it if Blind casting drives you nuts. How many plays and musicals now do this over and over again. This was talked about by many in attendance.

Great staging, Indulgent, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you just love Arthur Miller. I loved Death of a Salesman, but not this one nor did I like A View from the Bridge. This was so drawn out.

Don't see it if you want action and a script that moves forward in a normal manner. It seemed to repeat thoughts and ideas ad nauseam. Annette was blah.

Bland, Slow, Relevant, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You must see Annette Bening on stage; you can wait a few weeks to see if it gets better; you have never seen it; you like nice sets/lighting

Don't see it if You want a well-directed production; you want great acting all-around; you know how Jack O'Brien ruins most every show he touches

Also This is a fine production, but nothing more that "fine." That's too ba... Read more Read less

Riveting, Masterful, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy classic American drama with strong lead performances.

Don't see it if you're fidgety. This is a one-set, three-act play. There is plenty of drama as the story slowly reveals itself, but this is mostly talk.

Also The story is of its time and shows its age. But that's no criticism; I... Read more Read less
