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 love Harold Pinter. Probably not his best work but worth seeing just for the staging. The acting was great, just see it.
Don't see it if You don’t like slow, intense, lots of dialogue plays. Some of the audience didn’t get it and unwrapped candy at key dialogue parts......
Also Acting is great, staging is very interesting. Lighting is fantastic.
See it if you want to see top performers at their best. The acting in this show is mesmerizing and intelligent and moving.
Don't see it if you like shows with a happy ending.
See it if You love Tom Hiddleston. The acting in this piece really is strong, but the entire show is one note. One, long, note.
Don't see it if Just go to see any of the actors, if you admire them.The show is poorly directed. It has potential, so it’s disappointing.No levels. Boring.
See it if If you re a Pinter fan, or a fan of intimate, dramatic, plays. Every word was important. Only criticism, sound could be 7% louder in mezz
Don't see it if if you're not a fan of Pinter, dramatic plays, or Tom Hiddleston. 90 min-no intermission-if you get up during play, they'll move you to back
See it if You are looking for thought-provoking theater and you can focus on the writing. A very spare set.
Don't see it if you need a lot going on on stage.
See it if Wonderful adaptation of Pinters play. Clever to tell the story backwards. Keeps you absorbed in the story.
Don't see it if If you have trouble concentrating or prefer musicals.
See it if You love Tom Hiddleston or Charlie Cox, you can get a cheap ticket
Don't see it if you are looking for something resonant, you don't care for any of the actors or don't like minimalistic shows
See it if It's a Pinter play, look it up if you don't know what that means. Nicely staged, pay attention to the shadows, and the star quality.
Don't see it if It isn't about all that much, but the three actors make it seem far more resonant than it is.
See it if you like relationship plays about imperfect people told in non-linear fashion with unpretentious acting, simple sets and costumes.
Don't see it if Infidelity as a subject is one you see as a black or white issue. You prefer plays told in a linear structure.
See it if you consider the domino effect our actions have on others in our lives, and believe there is as much power in what is not said as what is.
Don't see it if you need your plays need and tidy, or if you need to see an elaborate stage. This is a spare production, and all the more effective for it.
See it if you are a fan of minimalist plays with talented actors. You enjoy Pinter's work.
Don't see it if you would rather see a more character-driven plot with more development and empathy. This play does not provide any substance for the viewer
See it if You love Tom Hiddleston and want to see a classic stripped down and naturalistic.
Don't see it if You want pyrotechnics and star powered performances. A bit too cold and pretentious.
See it if you like a well acted story that tackles a situation that is probably far more common than is discussed publicly
Don't see it if you are looking for a fast moving story. This is slow and deliberate. It will keep you discussing it for a while.
See it if You like Pinter plays and overall a great story filled with great acting! It is sublime!
Don't see it if You don’t like plays and want a full stage of props!
