Edgy, Intense, Riveting, Great acting

See it if you are up for a scary performance brilliantly acted by 2 actors and.... Happy they brought it to NYC

Don't see it if you prefer comedy to drama or have your own idea of what is scary or not.

Quirky, Slow, Intense

See it if You like a well acted mystery.

Don't see it if You want complexity. The story is simple and predictable

The New York Times
January 23rd, 2020
For a previous production

"The Comforts of the Cozy Scare in ‘The Woman in Black’: This ingenious, bare-bones adaptation of Susan Hill’s Gothic novel — a long-running hit in London — allows audiences to take charge of their fear."

For a previous production

3/5 Stars "There are moments of spellbinding stage magic...But...the play doesn’t cut deep. It winds you up—albeit much too slowly—until you're primed to scream-laugh your head off...Like the concoctions available at the bar, however, they’re enjoyable but ultimately pass right through you."

Theater Pizzazz
February 3rd, 2020
For a previous production

"Sometimes merely matching the mood of a play to a venue doesn't necessarily make for a 'special' spectacle. Such is the case with the use of another portion of the McKittrick, The Club Car Pub, in the new American revival of 'The Woman in Black: A Ghost Play in a Pub.'"
