J.T. Rogers' drama chronicles the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords. Winner of two 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Play. More…
It’s 1993 and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat are standing together in the White House Rose Garden, signing the first-ever peace agreement between Israel and the PLO. How were the negotiations kept secret? And who are these mysterious negotiators? Featuring dozens of characters and set in locations across the globe, 'Oslo' is both a political thriller and the personal story of a small band of women and men struggling together—and fighting each other—as they seek to change the world. Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, and starring Tony winners Jefferson Mays and Jennifer Ehle.
See it if You need 3 hours of free air-conditioning. Like to see actors try to breathe feeling into roles that have little in the writing.
Don't see it if you don't like emotionally void history lessons. Though well acting there's no one to care about. This author should write history books.
See it if You have knowledge of subject matter, and are interested. You enjoy history, talky shows.
Don't see it if You don't know or care about subject. I was lost from the 5th minute. Uninteresting set. Never had a clue what was going on.
See it if You must have every possible look at the Oslo accords.
Don't see it if You like theatre where the characters have all of their facets explored; this is far too much a bunch of people yelling over one another.
See it if you're interested in the Israel-Palestine conflict and have a background of information on it
Don't see it if you want to follow an emotional journey of a character, you don't have a background of the political climate in the 90s
See it if you want a history lesson as a Broadway show
Don't see it if . It was more of a lecture in a classroom than a show. I don't know what I was looking for based on the subject but I could not concentrate
See it if You're interested in back room political maneuvering. I'm sure it is a well written historical play but it just didn't keep my interest
Don't see it if I found it very boring. It was hard to understand the various accents in the large theater. Acting was fine but I found play confusing.
See it if you enjoy theatre being used as a history lesson or lecture rather than an engaging piece of live theatre.
Don't see it if you're expecting Oslo to combine it's well-researched text with the creative capabilities owned exclusively by live theatre.
See it if you can get close seats as the dialogue is difficult to hear/understand with the actors not speaking loud enough.
Don't see it if You are expecting anything like what these reviews say. I left after the first intermission.
