Tony and two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington returns to Broadway in a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s classic portrait of hope and disillusionment. More…
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.')
See it if You feel like you have to see this classic O'Neill play or anything that is Tony nominated.
Don't see it if You don't want to sit through a 4-hour show with a meandering script with way too many characters to follow and little payoff
See it if you love the play or want to see a movie star.
Don't see it if you love the play. It's a very odd production and often loses track of the story and characters.
See it if You have never seen the play before or you are such a Denzel Washington fan that you want to see him despite a disappointing performance.
Don't see it if You want to feel good about the human race.
See it if You are a dedicated O'Neillean revival fan or would die to see Denzel. This play is two hours too long and should've cut a lot of exposition
Don't see it if You value your time and want to have fun. This is an intense night of a story that ends up being a story.
See it if It was nice to see Denzel on stage but that happens late in the play.
Don't see it if Inarticulate, hard to understand accents, painfully slow, and too long..
See it if You are a fan of Eugene O'Neill's plays and a fan of Denzel Washington. Denzel Washington turns in a reasonably good performance.
Don't see it if If you don't want to suffer through excruciating performances. Almost everyone "exclaims" their lines in a loud and monotonous way.
See it if you just must see Denzel Washington giving a good but far from great portrayal. James Earl Jones was so much better at Circle in the Square.
Don't see it if you will be annoyed by the hard to decipher accents lost in a curiously guttural delivery (except for Washington whose voice is clear).
See it if YOu love O'niel and want to see great performances.
Don't see it if If you hate O'neil's writing and hate long redundant stories.
See it if you like Denzel Washington and Eugene O'neill Denzel is wonderful. But the story could be told in 2hrs and his monologue was the best part
Don't see it if you don't like long drawn out shows. 4 hours of characters misery
See it if You love Eugene O'Neill and plays with a large ensemble cast.
Don't see it if You're not an absolute fan of Eugene O'Neill. This play is long, depressing, and tedious. Good production, I just don't care for O'Neill.
See it if You have not seen this play & feel a need to. George Wolfe's staging is very good. Denzel is fantastic. It's also an hour shorter than usual
Don't see it if You don't like rather dated, heavily expository plays that keep repeating and repeating. Or serious drama. Or O'Neill in general.
See it if you want to see Denzel
Don't see it if you want an extremely long drawn out production. More was put into the outside facade of the theater than was actually put on the stage
See it if You are a enormous fan of Denzel Washington. His performance is phonemical, but not worth sitting through 4 very long hours of depression
Don't see it if This play should have never been remade. Depressing, no real likeable characters, way too long, and dated
See it if The show opens with 11 drunk guys and a bartender. They drink and talk drunk talk. Denzel appears at the end of the first act.
Don't see it if The first act lasted more than one hour. It should be edited to 20 minutes. Too long and boring! I left after the first act!
See it if You love the cast members, who all act masterfully, or specifically appreciate slow paced “classics”.
Don't see it if You don’t want to spend 4 hours on an irrelevant, shouldn’t-have-been-revived period piece whose star-power can’t overcome its datedness.
See it if you're a fan of Denzel and like dated tales.
Don't see it if you don't like to sit for long periods of time. This show is SO LONG
See it if You're a Denzel Washington or David Morse fan. It's an actors' play, so you get to see them a lot.
Don't see it if You can't withstand 3+ three hours of melodrama. The plot is pretty thin. Yes, there's a surprise at the end, but not enough for 3+ hrs
See it if If you never have seen Denzel on stage, or if you if you like O'Neil's writing.
Don't see it if If you do not like long shows that in this case drag along. Better when I saw it with Spacey, but was not really that good then, either.
