Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if You like good acting, especially Harper and her daughter. The emotions and actions Harper felt were totally understanding.

Don't see it if You don't like dramas, and need the script to be a little tighter.

Disappointing, Banal, Slow

See it if like theatre that bores you into sleep. you like to hear really poorly done accents that were distracting. Like dull scripts.

Don't see it if are looking for T Shreiber's productions with his usual standards. Hot l Baltimore was great. This was a big disappointment.

"Whatever Stephens is getting at becomes increasingly elusive as one sequence gives way to another without much in the way of dramatic logic. Under the circumstances, the actors in Terry Schreiber's production are only as good as the script allows...Your enjoyment of 'Harper Regan' will depend on how you feel about Harper herself. To my eyes, the nicest thing you can say about her is that she is a scattered collection of stray emotions."

“A beautifully mounted, skillfully directed and brilliantly acted production...This is a work for grown-ups, brave grown-ups, who are willing to live with the knowledge that the only thing we really know is that we don’t know...For those prepared to ponder and probe a multilayered panorama...Maeve Yore is glorious as Harper showing the character’s many facets...Kudos to Terry Schreiber for his effective and economical direction.”

"Dialogue is wonderful. Alas, individual scenes and included exposition is sometimes superfluous. Narrative sorely needs editing. Aside from this, the production is excellent on all fronts...Maeve Yore (Harper Regan) is flat-out terrific. There isn’t a moment we don’t thoroughly believe every word and move, some of which are neither logical nor anticipated. Yore’s focus/stage presence makes even silence compelling...Yore may be worth the play."
