See it if you're open to an intelligent strongly acted interpretation of a play that created scandal in the 20s. The thoughtful direction stayed w/ me
Don't see it if you're risk averse or unwilling to travel for your theater. I'd recommend a little research on Gods of Vengeance before attending.
See it if You have nothing better to do.
Don't see it if You don't like bad acting and bad presentations.
"This vaudeville effect is unfortunately somewhat distracting and doesn’t help the audience to follow the plot...'Merciful Father' surely taps into some issues that are sadly still relevant, especially when it comes to religion. However, Hadari's script calls for some clarity, and the production could be trimmed of some unnecessary fluff. But there is certainly value in this play, and the terrific acting ensemble all deliver their parts with conviction."
