Great acting, Slow, Romantic, Delightful, Intense

See it if ...If you appreciate great acting. Acting is outstanding.

Don't see it if ...a very slow, tortured love story is not your thing. Play could be 30 minutes shorter and nothing would be left out.

Intense, Raunchy, Great acting, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if The acting is excellent and it is well directed but so stupidly changed in venue completely destroying Strindberg's play.

Don't see it if If one likes graphic sexual scenes and a complete change from Strindberg's original script.

Enchanting, Exquisite, Epic, Intense

See it if you want a story with plenty of twists, turns, and gasping surprises.

Don't see it if you don't like intense situations.

The New York Times

"Our global age of income inequality certainly cannot be guaranteed to add a jolt of relevance to any classic play, but it definitely serves as an illuminating backdrop to Thomas Ostermeier’s stark and penetrating production of 'Miss Julie...' The intriguing idea that Mr. Ostermeier’s terrific production teases from this classic text is that the self-insulation of the Russian elite contains the seeds of self-destruction."

"Absoultely blistering...Ostermeier is a genius at rejuvenating old plays. Here he uses every trick he can think of — loud music, video projections, a rotating set — and it works. He also demands extremely physical performances from his cast...It’s tough to watch, but intensely rewarding and supremely topical."

"There’s little sense of threat in this version of Strindberg’s play...There’s a perverse desire to work against the text...Ostermeier’s understandable resistance to Strindberg’s symbolism and fascination with sexual deviance make the tragedy unmotivated and unlikely...Without an atmosphere of dread, the action becomes absurd."

"'Miss Julie' is a hard play to love, and the physically imaginative but dramatically chilly adaption doesn't make it any more captivating...Despite hyper-heated action, it's all only intermittently compelling...There are some touching moments, but Julie's relationship with Jean becomes less a matter of clashing wills and needs than an extended S&M session."
