Intense, Thought-provoking, Conservatively-slanted, Great staging, Captivating

See it if you enjoy courtroom dramas or want to learn more about this highly controversial trial.

Don't see it if you lean toward the left. This is a very conservative depiction of the trial with a specific political intent that many will not agree with. Read more

Ambitious, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow

Don't see it if You want a neutral edit of the court proceedings.

“The acting, directing and design are all competent...While there are some inherently riveting moments...it can feel at times like sitting through the tedious parts that 'Law and Order' leaves out...‘Ferguson’ could have looked more broadly into the significance of the confrontation and reaction to it for what it says about America...McAleer intends 'Ferguson' not just to debunk popular assumptions about the Brown killing but to discredit the entire movement."

"Members of the cast played their roles with impervious conviction, inciting an unyielding sense of resonation and sympathy...For anyone interested in seeing an incredible cast gaining a more objective scope on the misfortune of Michael Brown and ensuing injustices that follow, this play is definitely suitable."
