Betrayal
Midtown W
Overrated, Great acting

See it if you love pinter

Don't see it if you saw the Daniel craig merely being a blank set doesn't add much

Also not sure why it was such a hit in London

Good production solid piece

See it if you want to see the story again

Don't see it if you expect a sorkin west wing twist

Also not really sure why such a controversy about the making of it

A cabaret improv show, doesn't belong in a theater

See it if you like a short hip-hop freestlyle improv show, bits were fine, but overall doesn't merit being where it is - The audience was enthused

Don't see it if you expect much - yes it was entertaining, but way too much time spent teasing out what they would freestyle on

Also save your money ir did not even run the full 1:20 of a run time, well ... Read more Read less

Dark, edgy, interesting, so-so voices

Energetically & well acted

See it if you want to see some very good acting which is paired with very effective and frequently changing lighting and an interest backdrop

Don't see it if you don't want a one man show, but frankly he does a great job of portraying many characters, so it hardly seems like a one man show.
