See it if If your interested in a back wall Arthur Miller play. Acting is good with what they have to work with.
Don't see it if To long, to wordy. It drags on and becomes uninteresting. If you only like Arthur Miller's more popular works.
See it if ur a Miller completist & want to see his rarely-seen late play about Cold War espionage, paranoia, oppression & suppression of free speech.
Don't see it if u want to avoid an inert production of a generally didactic, verbose, familiar & dramatically unsatisfying play.
"Performed without an intermission, Arthur Miller's 'The Archbishop's Ceiling' goes on too long for the few events that take place. The title gives away the play's one big secret and the other later revelations seem too little and too late when there is much more technologically advanced surveillance available today. As we wake up to reports of hacking on an almost daily basis, the play's relevance seems to have diminished greatly in the intervening years since it was written."
"The play itself at times, can be brooding and uneasy. The goings-on can at times be sensual, even affectionate. But what brings a contemporaneous warmth to the play’s otherwise Cold War chill is the director himself and his precise direction to his ensemble casts deep appreciation for the personal poetics of individual power during times of political paranoia, hatred and deep contentment for those with opposing views. Very relevantly contemporary.”
