Superb acting by three of today's hottest stars. Breathtaking set. Absolutely amazing seats. Not the most cheerful story but a gripping and well-written one.

I was especially looking forward to seeing Dan Stevens because I love Downton Abbey but was also very impressed with David, Jessica and Judith's performance! I could hear Jessica just fine. I was assigned an orchestra seat at the end, which was...continued

Great costumes and very detailed set. The story itself kept me guessing. I really enjoyed Dan Stevens' and Judith Ivey's acting performance.

My orchestra seat was under the first balcony and it was very hard to hear. Particularly Jessica Chastain. Many people moved to seats closer to the stage on the left side, but by the time I realized this there were no seats left.

This play was set in time before cars, radio, telephone or other forms of telecommunication. It is an interesting commentary of the male who do anything for money and the female who will believe in love until proven otherwise. The acting was...continued

Saw the show with all original cast members and I must say that cast was absolutely fantastic from the maid to the star performers. While the story can drag a bit the actors keep the audience enthralled.

Spectacular acting, sets and costumes. What a cast! The hearing device at the theater is the best one I've used in any venue. Wonderful experience.

Truly enjoyed the show, all the actors were amazing. The set and the busy body aunt stole the show but overall an amazing theatre experience. Highly recommend.

OK show, needed to be edited down. Running time of 2 hours and 45 minutes was excessive. Excellent acting, beautiful sets but the show dragged a little.

Having seen the revival of this play years ago with Cherry Jones, who won a Tony for Best Actress.
I can't honestly say that this production was as good, but the play stands on its own as classic theatre and Judith Ivey steals the show in a...continued

the play was fantastic. The set is wonderful and characters are all entertaining and engaging. The story is predictable, but the actors built up the tension and kept it interesting. It's a good play to discuss after.
