From the show:
Betrayal, the sold-out London hit starring Tom Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton, and Charlie Cox comes to Broadway for a strictly limited engagement.
Direct from a standing-room-only hit run in London, Betrayal is the story of an illicit affair that unfolds in reverse—from the end of a marriage to the first forbidden spark. Starring Golden Globe and Olivier Award winner Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), Zawe Ashton (Velvet Buzzsaw) and Charlie Cox (Daredevil) in their Broadway debuts, this stunning production features the daring vision of one of the UK’s most acclaimed directors.
See it if You are fan of the actors and If you enjoy (or have never experienced) slow paced play that focus mainly in the acting.
Don't see it if You are not a big fan of plays that have a slow pace activity and that require some extra attention to the story.
See it if You're Pinter groupie or mother of one of the, admittedly brilliant, actors.
Don't see it if Reverse chronology robs of dramatic tension. Blank stage seems pretentious. Characters’ arty jobs reinforce privileged, out of touch people.
See it if You like Pinter....this is the best production of Pinter I've ever seen. The direction is masterful and intriguing & so are the performers.
Don't see it if It may shock if you're not expecting a more plot-driven, linear play. Requires lots of work on the part of the audience.
See it if You enjoy incredibly well-acted, enthralling theater that leaves you reconsidering perceptions and reactions, and intertwining relationships
Don't see it if You don't like to consider challenges to society's expectations/conventions, or if you have a short attention span.
See it if You want a show that makes you think and feel. Jamie Lloyd is a brilliant director and the three leads are very strong.
Don't see it if You want to see a grand spectacle with light/fluffy plot. Set is minimal and the play focuses on dialogue. Dark humor, by no means happy.
See it if you like bad copies of Van Hove's View From The Bridge...you want to semi sleep for 90 minutes in a FREEZING cold theater set at 68 degrees.
Don't see it if You expect an exciting and emotional play. Expecting a riveting production. You want your money's worth. You expect anything of excellence.
See it if You like a little more thought with your theatre. There’s no extra “stuff” to draw your attention away from the main characters
Don't see it if You’re expecting lots of humor and music - it’s definitely not “Oklahoma”
