Great acting, Great singing, Disappointing, Dated, Confusing

See it if You like the music of Bob Dylan!

Don't see it if You dont like slow musicals. For me the plot was confusing, show was very slow paced and quite depressing. But singing and acting was great!

Disappointing, Confusing, Dated, Slow

See it if you really enjoy Bob Dylan music - it was worked into the show beautifully.

Don't see it if you prefer a faster-paced show. The staging was all very dull and dated and I struggled to stay interested.

Great acting, Great singing, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You love a unique play/jukebox-musical. Is it a play with music or a musical??

Don't see it if You hate musicals.

The Times (UK)
December 17th, 2019

If you’re a Bob Dylan fan, there is plenty to enjoy in this West End transfer. Beware of the structural flaws, though. The cast is so large that we only catch glimpses of their inner lives … we’re left wanting to know more.

The jukebox musical is a challenge...yet here McPherson gives it a potent force by starkly delineating the kind of socio-economic conditions that produce blues and folk at their rawest.

McPherson’s book is a haunting slice of Depression-era Americana that draws not only on Dylan’s songbook but finds inspiration in the sad, vivid pages of authors like John Steinbeck.

The overall soundscape is so beautiful...Perhaps the largest flaw is that despite a strong ensemble cast it's difficult to fully connect with any one story.

The Stage (UK)
February 1st, 2020

The narrative is patchy, the script has a tendency to run to cliché...But, like Dylan’s own artistic output, it transcends. It succeeds in being emotionally true and compelling.

The Telegraph (UK)
December 18th, 2019

Jesse Green of The New York Times calls this Critic's Pick "blazingly theatrical and thrillingly tense." Time Out cheers, “FOUR STARS! It's ingenious, poetic and unsettling." And The Hollywood Reporter raves, “PASS OVER is a powerfully imaginative drama that will shake up audiences, instantly tagging the playwright as a significant new voice.”
