We really enjoyed this performance which generated a discussion among the three of us (seniors) relating to the Depression, worker's rights, leaving a place of... continued

Arthur Miller at his best.
Lively play, lots of action going on at all times.
Well cast, actors were quite accomplished.
Scenic design was great, loved all the old-time props and decorations.
Highly recommend, go see for yourself!

I liked this play. The acting was great from all the actors. Only one thing didn't look real. The workers looked nicely dress to be working in a car parts shop.

Excellent Play - Everyone who loves the theater shouldn't let this one get away! An Arthur Miller play brilliantly done & rarely performed, with excellent acting, is a must see.

This Arthur Miller play was somewhat disappointing. It is in one act with two scenes, each one about a Monday, one in 1933 and the other in 1934. What we go was an... continued

The performances were fine but I'm not sure why the play was written. It did not seem to have a point or direction or anything specific to say. Also, a pet peeve but... continued

Excellent acting by all. The play itself however was not particularly compelling. I do applaud the Ruskin theater group for their generally high caliber performances

Anyone loving theater cannot afford to miss an Arthur Miller play that is not often performed. Especially when it is brilliantly done like this one. I went back a second time just to see the final gut-wrenching scene by Gus (Richard Leighton).

I'm not sure why this dated and boring Miller play was revived by the group and overacting didn't help any.

This play and these performances were fantastic. I felt like I was in this dusty garage with an intriguing cast of characters. I loved this play!

Depression-era play involving a large cast of characters - immigrant, drunk, nervous switchboard operator, idealistic college-bound narrator - all good performers. The... continued

A terrific play (well Arthur Miller, duh!), wonderful casting and acting, lots of action and plenty to think about. The Ruskin continues to impress! It's my favorite small theatre.

This less well known play of Miller's is a gem. There's not much of a plot, no burning issues or conflicts to be resolved, just every day events and personal conflicts at... continued

A bunch of actors and actresses running and screaming on stage. Didn't like the plot either. I am glad I got free tickets.

I have to say the play itself is indeed dated with little relevance for me to care for the characters and get into the story. The performers are all very talented,... continued
