“A raucous family comedy, a melodrama of forbidden love, a political thriller, and a classic tragedy lamenting the sins of fathers, all in one...Donnelly is just one member of the strongest large cast in a Broadway production in years...Considine has perhaps the largest challenge in playing Quinn...But the fault lies with Butterworth, not with Considine who is electric...A truly universal tragedy, grounded in a thousand brilliantly observed details...Intensely gutsy and vital.” Full Review
for a previous production “What is up on the Shubert Theatre’s stage feels much more Sorkin than Lee to me, and not in a good way...It didn’t help that Finch was played by Daniels...His every moment on stage was compelling yet not at all evocative...I also felt too aware of Rudin and Sorkin’s attempts to manufacture relevance...In many scenes this production delivered...But the production was compromised from the start by the mismatch of writer and subject.” Full Review
