About the show

Three-time Emmy Award nominee Adam Driver ("Star Wars: The Last Jedi") and Golden Globe Award winner Keri Russell ("The Americans") star in the first-ever Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson’s acclaimed play. More…

'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 Alter tragic loss of friend and brother, a couple are drawn together to grieve and attempt to move on. Kerri Russell & Adam Driver excellent

Don't see it if This play was written B.C. (Before Cellphones) but the dialogue is still crisp, funny, and touching.

One liners for days, Funny, Great acting

See it if You like sharply written dialogue, and for Adam Driver’s ferocity/intensity/individuality -for Brandon Uranowitz's funny turn as Larry

Don't see it if Keri Russell is good, funny & strong, but script doesn’t give her as much to work with - the men have much meatier dialogue & characters

Slow, Romantic, Disappointing, Dated

See it if Only interesting if you are an Adam Driver super-fan; his part is worthy, but rest of production lacks flair and still stuck in 1986.

Don't see it if you are hard of hearing! Voices of these actors do not carry. Don't expect fireworks from these two, chemistry is lacking.

Disappointing, Dated, Funny, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you want to see Adam Driver show his acting chops as a somewhat comedic Stanley Kowalski. You'll hang on every word of his opening rant!

Don't see it if you don't want to be dismayed by Keri Russell's weaker performance. It was hard to believe her attraction to Driver's character.

Great acting, Without purpose, Great staging, Dated, Funny

See it if You love the actors.Adam Driver is a terrific presence in an amusing play that unfortunately doesn’t make you care enough for the characters

Don't see it if You want plays to be great-this isn’t funny enough or moving enough or poetic enough to be great. You remember Joan Allan in the role

Also Set is beautiful, and I’m pleased to have seen the play. An interestin... Read more Read less
