At Harry Hope’s saloon, the biannual visit of charismatic traveling salesman Hickey (Washington) is cause for celebration. But when a newly sober Hickey arrives, his renewed outlook on life threatens to upend the lives of his old friends, leading to a series of devastatingly comic and heartbreaking events. This epic 18-character drama is directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe ('Shuffle Along,' 'Bring in 'da Noise/Bring in 'da Funk,''Angels in America.')

Great acting, Intense, Great writing, Dated, Entertaining

See it if Great piece of classical theater by Eugene O'Neill.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if you have 2 brain cells to rub together.This is the quintessential production of a difficult play.Brilliant acting by all.4 hours felt like 2

Don't see it if you want a 90 minute piece of fluff.This requires that you pay attention & focus on what isn't said.It is worth the effort. Cast is amazing.

During previews
Ambitious, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if you are ready to commit four hours to the theatre. This masterwork from the late 1930s is a slow character study with limited action.

Don't see it if You just want to see Denzel, this is a true ensemble piece. You're a tourist who wants entertainment

Great acting, Intelligent, Profound, Great writing, Slow

See it if you want to watch a very well-acted, thoughtful production of a classic play.

Don't see it if you want something that's more faster-paced; this is a bit slow, with a running time of about four hours.

Great acting, Great writing, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if Denzel Washington is a masterful actor, with a wonderful voice. His Hickey was charismatic and touching.

Don't see it if This show was not miced and people past about row L in the orchestra couldn’t hear a damn thing! Inexcusable and infuriating. ,

Also I’m going to rant here. In this day and age, there is no excuse for a ... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great acting, Relevant, Indulgent, Slow

See it if O'Neill's epic take on human futility in the wake of casual determinism The bar patrons' "pipe dreams" are all fiercely portrayed by cast

Don't see it if Denzel's Hickey is merely serviceable lacking the potent spark needed to galvanize O'Neill's drunks (& us) Very well directed by Wolfe

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You’re a fan of Denzel I would see it. I’m personally indifferent about him but the entire cast was incredible. Very absorbing.

Don't see it if If you can’t sit through a almost 4 hour play. Are expecting Denzel from start to finish. He doesn’t come in until about an hour in.

Dark, Well-acted, Memorable, Examining, Bleak portrait of dreary truths

See it if four hours of tense reflections upon human decisions, desires, dreams, and self-fed delusions, and a hint of impended death, fascinate you.

Don't see it if you don’t appreciate Eugene O’Neill’s darkness. Death, discouragement, depression, and drunkenness serve as eye-openers--sometimes too late.

Also As typical with O’Neill plays, the fraught, gloomy The Iceman Cometh r... Read more Read less

See it if a show about disillusioned men who are spending their last years in a bar with a bottle; some great performances & interesting staging

Don't see it if you want something upbeat, don't like O'Neill's work, can't handle almost 4 hours (4 Acts with 2 intermissions & 1 short break); often drags

Also I thought D. Washington's performance was wonderful. Several others we... Read more Read less

See it if You’re a fan of dark flawed characters with lots of slow backstory development. Amazing cast, most are outstanding! David Morse shines!

Don't see it if You want to see Denzel Washington at his best. In my opinion he was the weakest link in the cast.

Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Great writing

See it if You’re a fan of O’Neil or want to see a strong performance from Denzel Washington as Hickey.

Don't see it if You’re not up for a 4+ hour. The actors don’t have mics so it can be challenging to hear well if you’re off to the side.

Ambitious, It has its moments, Perplexing

See it if you like O'Neill and want to see yet another production of this play. It's still great writing. Really good acting --overacting at times

Don't see it if you understand theatre and believe that it is incongruous to have a black protagonist that everyone looks up to in 1912 blue-collar America

Also "Blind casting" particularly doesn't work in this play, even though De... Read more Read less

Funny, Great acting, Intense, Great writing

See it if you love Denzel and great acting in general. The performance I was at was constantly interrupted by a very rude, inconsiderate audience.

Don't see it if I can't give an accurate review because of the horrible audience, standing, talking, phone ringing, popping water bottles throughout

Great acting, Resonant, Great writing, Slow, Dated

See it if you love Eugene O'Neill and Denzel Washington. The acting is great from an excellent cast. The pacing is slow and drags in the 4 hour show.

Don't see it if you don't want to sit through a 4-hour play; are hard of hearing; don't like O'Neill; want a fresh play; are just there for D. Washington.
