Loved it! Classic Arthur Miller, very strong performances by all (including the understudies). Pace moved well, scenic design captured the essence of the time period. Recommend highly!!

Fantastic production of All My Sons! All of the actors were first rate; I can't wait to see what they do next at the Ruskin Theatre Company. Will definitely go back and tell all my friends!

Well done, everyone. A classic play executed to perfection by a high caliber group of actors. I go to two of these each week and am not in the industry and do not know anyone in the play. This group does a fantastic job on a play that presents...continued

Well worth attending. Very good performances in a great American play. Seating a bit of a hassle, which was unusual for this wonderful theatre.

I fear that this is merely what we've come to expect of great plays. A mediocre rendering of a huge idea. I was extremely disappointed. Found the directing extremely stiff and, aside from the understudy who played Anne, I felt that most of the...continued

Despite some excellent performances, our evening was marred by several inaudible actors. It's a small theatre, so there's no reason people should have trouble hearing.
Both "Joe" and "Kate" gave remarkable performances.

We left at intermission. A waste of a great script. All we could assume was that the cast that everybody loved must have been replaced. With the exception of the father and the neighbors, acting showed a lack of understanding of either vested...continued

Very intimate setting with amazing performances! Paul Linke, Catherine Telford, and Dominic Competatore were great!

This was a top-notch production. The performances were fantastic, although the lead son's performance was a bit off. The actor's who portrayed the parents and the girlfriend were were talented. The pace was good, and it was a fabulous play. I...continued

Saw it again. It was even better this time and the only weak points were the son (who was as lame as last time or more so) and his girl (who is the most beautiful woman in the world, but could learn to speak her lines a little more clearly).

Terrific play! Miller really knew how to write them. Great set! One of the best I've seen at this venue. Acting? Sometimes terrific; sometimes a bit off.

It could have been just me, but I felt that some of the pairs of characters needed...continued

Went back with a larger group and did enjoy the play a second time. Everything seemed to have jelled, except the actor playing the son, who still hasn't gotten with the program (at least in the view of my party).

Lovely set design & very well acted from a 1947 classic play, which is still relevent today! It's well worth seeing.

Great job w/an overall very talented cast. However, I got there early so as to get a good seat in this small and oddly-shaped theater, and when the house was opened an unusually large number of seats were reserved. Very unhappy about that,...continued

Hate to write my review as our ticket price was very good. But...Paul Linke was the only cast member to hold this production together. He was excellent. But the rest of the cast was not at all up to his professional caliber. In fact, he was...continued

Another excellent production from the Ruskin Group marked by top-notch acting and direction. The themes of this Arthur Miller play are thought-provoking and still topical even though the play is set in the aftermath of World War II.

Outstanding performance. I'm thinking of going again if I could get my husband to go. Arthur Miller's words...great. I have read this play but never seen it and I'm so glad I got a chance to see it performed. Run, not walk, to go see it.

Another great show by the Ruskin theater. The lead characters were very believeable in their parts. The pace of the show moved really well. My boyfriend and I both enjoyed the show and would recommend it to others!
