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 Don’t see it. Hated it.
Don't see it if It was long and boring. Denzel Washington could not save this. It is a bunch of drunk men muttering on stage for hours on end. Awful.
See it if You’re an O’Neill completionist and set out to see every show of his on Broadway. Also some good acting from the supporting players.
Don't see it if You want a production that brings something new to the table.
See it if You wanna see Denzel. I admit I wanted to see what he would bring.
Don't see it if You don't want to leave yet ANOTHER Broadway show disappointed and disheartened at the lack of artistry... Ugh... Just don't go.
See it if See it only if you are a fan of the story and know what to expect.
Don't see it if Boring. Way too long. A bunch of drunkards in stage mumbling about their boring lives. Even Denzel couldn’t save this show. Hated it.
See it if You need to see Denzel on Stage.
Don't see it if You don't want to sit through 4 hours of slow moving dialog with VERY little story between poorly developed characters you don't care about.
See it if you are a dedicated O'Neill fan; you want to see a superb cast overcome some bad direction and fussy staging
Don't see it if you expect true insights into this period piece that is still relevant from a director who has a reputation worthy of much better work.
