'Burn This' tells the story of four New Yorkers whose lives are uprooted by a young dancer's accidental death. Set in downtown New York in the raw and gritty 1980s, the combustible drama explores the spiritual and emotional isolation of the dangerous, sexy, raw, and demanding Pale (Adam Driver) and the modern dancer Anna (Keri Russell), and their tempestuous relationship after the two iconoclasts are brought together in the wake of a life-changing personal tragedy. Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer.
See it if you want to see the actors, no matter how miscast, or waste your time to get a glimpse of a gorgeously-rendered 80s Tribeca loft
Don't see it if you don't want a dated play with not much relevance to the present day, where everything relies on the actors' chemistry and they have none
See it if You want to see a really great performance by Adam Driver. And a nice set.
Don't see it if You have anything else to do. Or if you have to pay for tickets. I'm not usually this flip about shows, but this one is missable.
See it if You love these particular actors or want to see them up close and personal.
Don't see it if I thought it was boring and went nowhere. Over acted and boring. Don’t see if you want something entertaining and that keeps your interest.
See it if You enjoy every show on Broadway, especially old classic revivals with all-star casts. This one for me did not work.
Don't see it if If you are not familiar with this play and are expecting a smoldering, sexy love story you will be very disappointed. The ads are misleading
