Roundabout Theatre Company presents Keira Knightley's Broadway debut in a new adaption of the Emile Zola novel, a tale of love, lust, betrayal and guilt. More…
A quiet young woman with a restless spirit, Thérèse submits to a loveless life at the side of her weak and selfish husband…until she meets his childhood friend Laurent. Consumed by their desire for each other, Thérèse and Laurent dream of the day they can finally be together. When their overwhelming passion spins violently out of control, they realize that love can be a dangerous game, and sometimes there is no winner.
See it if I was an outlier as a TR fan. KK's perf was stiff, but I blame the director. Her perf undermined the affair's power, but TR's still haunting
Don't see it if And the sets, costumes, staging were exquisite (water scene, suspended bedroom). Judith L was outstanding. I found TR a satisfying evening.
See it if you like an edgy, good acting piece. very good directing, show moves along nicely.
Don't see it if moves slow at one part, it does keep you interested, however, throughout.
See it if you appreciate Keira working her a** off in her role, and a brilliant set that evokes gothic mood and features a simulated river on stage
Don't see it if you don't appreciate obvious foreshadowing, and Knightley's limitations as a stage actress - big cinematic moments over realistic gestures
See it if You want to see a wonderful set and some very good performances.
Don't see it if You have a problem with women being victims, or with watching really uninspirational behavior in pretty much everyone in the story.
See it if You don't mind a story which, while absorbing, is relentlessly miserable.
Don't see it if You're looking for a feel-good show. Knightley's performance was a little weird.
See it if you're a Keira Knightley fan or want to see a beautiful set featuring an on-stage river.
Don't see it if you aren't into dark, slow dramas.
See it if you are familiar with Emile Zola's novel Therese Raquin, enjoy a chilling slow-burn of a thriller, or are fans of elaborate stage design.
Don't see it if You're looking for intense drama, realistic sex-scenes, or a memorable performance by Keira Knightley (this is Judith Light's show).
See it if you like Gothic tragedy. That's really all this is. Also, if you want to see really original set design. That's the best part.
Don't see it if you don't like ghost stories, you aren't into melodrama.
See it if good production design and acting will trump a somewhat cliched, banal story.
Don't see it if you're looking for something truly innovative, and not just cleverly done.
See it if This is one of the most intense psychological thrillers I have ever seen. Very dark and brooding
Don't see it if You are only looking for a light comic romp!
See it if you are a big fan of the performers, they are truly spectacular in the show
Don't see it if you like lighter, and faster moving productions
See it if you're into pompous, highbrow shows. This is such a disappointment. The only cast member who creates a "true" character is G. Ebert.
Don't see it if let's say that again: "Don't see it." KK glowers and sulks the whole evening, Judith Light is borderline camp. Production a travesty of Zola
See it if you enjoy great writing, are intrigued by inventive staging & are in the mood for something darker.
Don't see it if you prefer spectacles or traditional story telling methods.
