Roundabout Theatre Company presents Clive Owen in his Broadway debut in this unsettling drama of desire and blurred realities by British playwright Harold Pinter. More…
A married couple are visited by the wife's former roommate, whose presence raises questions about the nature of the three's past and present relationships with each other. Deeley is quite looking forward to meeting Anna, his wife Kate’s friend from long ago. But as the night goes on, Anna’s visit quickly shifts from an ordinary sharing of memories to a quiet battle for power. Tony Award winner Douglas Hodge directs this revival of the haunting and passionate play, which has not been seen on Broadway in over 40 years.
See it if I wouldn't recommend this production to anyone. Unintelligible and, therefore, hard to sit through. Lots of words without meaning.
Don't see it if you value your time. This Pinter was especially mystifying. Very long, even at 70 mins (an expensive ticket for a short time in the theater)
See it if you are into surreal dialogue. Pinter is a niche taste. It's really well acted though and the sets are stunning.
Don't see it if you are not into surreal dialogue, overdone characters and unintelligible British accents.
See it if Not worth seeing. Slow and boring. Extremely disappointing since these actors are usually excellent. The play made NO sense. Terrible show.
Don't see it if If you don't like Pinter. And even if you think you do like Pinter this play may change your mind.
See it if You enjoy impenetrable nonsense.
Don't see it if I just saw it, and I feel like 3 people just threw poo on me for an hour, and then took a bow.
See it if you're a fan of Pinter and have an understanding of his work.
Don't see it if you don't like long dramas that make you think.
See it if you like the actors. It was somewhat overacted (though I got the feeling it was directed to be so) but did hold your interest.
Don't see it if you expect it to make sense or resonate. The performers have chemistry but at the end you're just not sure they took you anywhere.
See it if Excruciating, incomprehensible, slow moving, depressing and self indulgent play. A total bore.
Don't see it if You want a lively or engaging, absorbing story.
See it if You want to see a short, 70 minute play with a great cast. Play itself, not so great, story is lacking. Or if you love Pinter's work
Don't see it if you are looking for a cut and dry story. Or if you do not care for Pinter;s work.
See it if you enjoy great acting and want to be in and out of a show in minimal time.
Don't see it if you have no patience for Pinter at his most Pinter. You don't want to listen to subscriber audiences cough relentlessly through a quiet play
See it if you like Pinter. Like all of his work, it's not an easy evening but can be very rewarding. This time, not so much.
Don't see it if you're not a Pinter fan. His work is difficult even at it's best.
See it if You are a Pinter fan and relish post-show arguments about what the play is REALLY about. Apparently Pinter wasn't totally sure either.
Don't see it if You need to understand, at some level, what is actually going on, and prefer your Pinter at normal conversational level rather than shouty.
See it if you're a Pinter die-hard. The turntable set revolving at a glacial pace sums up the play: actors going round&round but getting nowhere.
Don't see it if you can help it.
See it if you like a serious, thinking-required, heavy plays. Also see it if you enjoy quality staging, movement, & acting.
Don't see it if you want a clear cut plot & an easy going theater experience.
See it if Many plot twists, but a bit hard to understand. Good actors.
Don't see it if you're looking for dazzling entertainment. It's only an hour long. It starts our rather boring.
