See it if you like strong acting in a strong-premise context. But STWOM is too much of a good thing at 3 hrs. Cuts are needed. Not nearly as...
Don't see it if philosophical as I'd expected. Discussions sh've been deeper. Sometimes quite funny/moving. If had been half as long, w've been twice as gd.
See it if You like wordy character driven plays... not a lot of action or arc of a plot but rather intense, interesting character development.
Don't see it if You expect a lot of action or can’t overlook the too long script that comes in at two-hours and forty-five minutes.
“Long and difficult, three flawless performances enrich this graceful revival...Structurally the play is difficult...By having the audience spend close to three hours in a theater watching three men talk, perhaps McGuinness desires them to feel detained as well...McGuinness creates three fully-realized engaging characters whose initially contentious relationship develops into a moving bond...Most crucially, Langdon guides the performers to sustained emotional intensity.”
“Captivating...There is much to recommend in this gritty, visceral production, from the...set to the masterfully orchestrated ebb and flow of speech...There are moments when the tears flow a little too freely, an effort to restrain them would be more believable...The text itself suffers at times from being overly schematic...But there is so much life and lyricism and breadth of vision in both the text and the production that minor shortcomings are quickly forgotten.”
