Great writing, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you want to see how easy it is to be pulled into a web of evil.Very important during this time of rising racism, hatred, intolerance.

Great writing, Excellent lead, Powerful

See it if you enjoy well-written plays on banalities of evil. Mr. Tennant is terrific as a 1930s German intellectual rationalizing Nazi party ideology

Don't see it if you have a hard time following actors playing multiple roles, sometimes switching mid-sentence, or events that are presented out of sequence Read more

Slow, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if To see David Tennant on stage

Don't see it if I found it slow, and was unable to get into the piece. Found it very confusing and badly staged.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you want an engaging play depicting the ease with which one's morals can be twisted if you allow it. Fantastic from Tennant, as you'd expect

Don't see it if you're not prepared for what ends up being quite a philosophical evening at the theatre or you need a lush set to be engaged.

Thought-provoking, Muddled, Profound

See it if you want to see a play about the Holocaust (everyone probably should, but the very elderly may get extremely upset).

Don't see it if you want to see a fun light play or you're not prepared to seriously consider the subject matter. Read more

Resonant, Relevant, Great acting, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if you think "It can't happen here." You want to better understand how important a moral compass is, and what happens when it's lacking.

Don't see it if You prefer to think that none of us could fall into this trap.

Great design, Thought-provoking, Overrated, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You like “thinking” plays — not a lot of action but tons of intellectual dialogue

Don't see it if You aren’t interested in work that centers the experiences of a Nazi

The London Evening Standard
October 13th, 2022

"Although grimly funny and studiously banal at times, it progresses inexorably...This is an important rather than an enjoyable watch."

The Telegraph (UK)
October 14th, 2022

"In a hypnotic performance, [Tennant] ... keeps us in suspense, giving conspiratorial flashes and darkening into malevolence, but, in the main, eerily neutral and preoccupied ... Less commendable are the Cabaret-style ticket-prices at the top end: £155 for the seat I was sitting in? It was good, but not that good."

" 'Good' is a gradually enraging drama that makes us hear afresh the denials that lead populism into dangerous waters, and may well be a lesson for our times."

"It's a chilling performance rather than a moving one...Good isn't perfect, but its lessons demand to be understood."

"Don’t expect fireworks. What you get is something stranger, more insidious, and I suspect much more memorable."

London Theatre

"It’s a strong framing, and there are striking, resonant messages within this work, but as drama it unsettles when really it should devastate."

The Stage (UK)
October 13th, 2022

"...the play’s pertinence, in our age of populism, scapegoating and sloganeering, remains sharp. It’s a grim nightmare of quietly lethal potency."

The Independent (UK)
October 13th, 2022

"The text is baffling in form, with scenes that don’t always follow a linear narrative order, while the character’s lack of definite identity prevents the production from ever feeling truly disturbing."
