Thought-provoking, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if It is wonderful to have Metropolitan Playhouse back in to see in person. Another thought provoking play that is still a reflection on today

Don't see it if I don't think anyone will be confused by some actors playing multiple parts

Relevant, Intelligent, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you're interested in seeing young women workers struggle to be seen and heard.

Don't see it if you need fancy sets and lots of laughs. Read more

"Especially given what we have learned about the fates of so many workers in the pandemic, Radium Girls feels thoroughly contemporary. Gregory doesn't need to editorialize; the facts are plain, no more so than in the scene Grace is offered a paltry settlement. Her mother points out that it is better that nothing. "Is that all I'm worth?" Grace asks. "Better than nothing?" One hundred years later, it's a question that carries a powerful sting."

"D.W. Gregory’s docudrama Radium Girls being given its New York premiere after a run in New Jersey over 20 years ago attempts to put the story and subsequent lawsuits on stage. Part of the problem with the stage version is the use of ten actors to play 36 parts with five playing up to seven roles each, making it difficult to keep straight who is who. Possibly more damaging is the languid, studied direction by Laura Livingston."
