About the show

A new mounting of Strindberg's classic about a life-altering night of passion between an aristocratic woman and her servant. More…

Violence erupts as they realize that they may be more dependent on their positions in life than they thought. Strindberg's drama is as timely as ever as it depicts people struggling with their place in society. The play shows an attempted destruction of the barriers of gender and class. The failure of this attempt gives us a harrowing look at what keeps people from stepping out of the positions they are born into.

Absorbing, Great acting, Profound, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if You want an intimate production of Miss Julie. Male lead is a real up and comer, the ladies were lovely. A real pleasure.

Don't see it if You can't do a 4th floor walk up theatre. You you're looking for a musical.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Edgy, Great costumes

See it if You want to see what happens when the lady of the house becomes involved with her valet. You want to see an intense performance.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a play that gets a bit crazy due to the lady of the house and her intimate relationship with her valet.

Also I loved the set. Their costumes were amazing. The performers did a gre... Read more Read less

Intense, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great acting, Profound

See it if theatre history, 19th Century naturalist/expressionist drama, A. Strindberg, and frank, real portrayal of misogyny/class wars intrigue you

Don't see it if you will compare adapted play to 2014 movie, cringe at unrestrained blasphemy, sexuality, misogyny, stereotyping class, race, or nationality

Ambitious, Refreshing, Great costumes, set and lighting, Well staged, Disappointing

See it if You're up for a literally earthy Miss Julie, well conceived, costumed and lit, and can deal with its attractive young actors mostly emoting.

Don't see it if You don't like your Strindberg condensed or adapted

Also On the one hand, everything about this production looks terrific, & lo... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great writing, Relevant, Intelligent, Multi leveled

See it if Nicely directed absorbing adaptation of play w/performers who completely hold your attention. 1 wild night=destruction.C if u want dif angle

Don't see it if Lead actress over acts throughout which can work your nerves-nonetheless, she is interesting. Saw no reason for cutting of Count's role.

Banal, Confusing, Dizzying, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if i can't think of a reason.

Don't see it if you like good, well acted dramas.

Also i'm stymied by the positive reviews. i thought this show was nonsensic... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You wanna see a slick production that smooths the text out immensely.

Don't see it if You're looking for an unbiased look at sexual dynamics. You're ashmatic (the stage is mostly a very cool pit of dirt, but it gets kicked up)

Also The actors did a phenomenal job of playing the text, but it's still ha... Read more Read less

Great acting, Intense

See it if you are familiar with the previous script

Don't see it if you can't handle a 4th floor walk up, want something light hearted, don't like small theater

Intense, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you like explorations of the class system and how it affects love/relationships.

Don't see it if I found it a bit repetitive and long and maybe overacted and predictable

Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if if you are familiar with the playwright. Very good acting. Austin Reed Alleman is an up and coming actor to watch.

Don't see it if It gets a bit heavy and at times confusing. Don't see it if you want something that is lighter.

Also If you can't navigate 4 flights of steep stairs, when you buzz to ente... Read more Read less

Great acting, Romantic, Slow, Great staging, Intense

See it if ...if you like love stories, slow thoughtful performance with brilliant (Broadway quality) acting.

Don't see it if ...if a very slow-paced story is not what interestes you. A sleeping man in front row was indicative of the pace but brilliant acting.

Dated, Great acting, Great staging, Intense

See it if Well-acted with Shay having a particularly nuanced performance. Great scene design.

Don't see it if Consider Strindberg's views on feminism to be a deal-breaker.

Also Strindberg's Miss Julie does represent the feminist upbringing of the ... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great staging, Raunchy, Intense

See it if You love the play and are previously familiar with the script. The text received a refreshing facelift and was very impactful.

Don't see it if You don't like small theaters and small black box performance spaces. The house is small and located on a fourth floor walkup.

Clever, Entertaining, Ambitious, Dizzying, Intense

See it if You like drama

Don't see it if You hate plays
