Profound, Great writing, Relevant, Riveting, Ambitious

See it if you don't know Havel; he is a must-see playwright. His 3 pieces have diff styles...and all are excellent. Bookend Pinter/Beckett are good.

Don't see it if you dislike provocative political plays. Acting is mostly strg. Gr night of theater, unless you only like airy musicals.

"A Vaclav Havel Trilogy Drives Evening of Political Theater. 'Havel: The Passion of Thought,' along with work by Harold Pinter and one by Samuel Beckett (dedicated to Havel), takes on morality and tyranny."

"That 'Havel: the Passion of Thought' still has much to say to us after 45 years says a great deal about the state of the world and human rights today. However, Richard Romagnoli fails to do justice to the plays by using the same flat style with all five."

"A sporadically interesting, though somewhat flat, theatrical experience, that, despite the horrific political situation in this country today, never manages to feel particularly engaged or relevant."
