I thoroughly enjoyed this play. It had a lovely combination of serious and silly, the performances were spot on, and the actors seemed to be having a good time. The length (it was a bit longer than the advertised 90 minutes) was on target to get...continued

Loved it! I've been a long time fan of Tana Hicken but hadn't seen her in years and years. I went with a friend whose Mother is 93 and I was recently the care giver for at 92 year old woman. Tana's character resonated so well. The body...continued

Funny, moving, and all in all delightful. As a 70 yr old Liberal grandmom of a 8 year old, I felt like I was seeing a glimce of the relationship possible for myself and my grandson 10 years into the future. Wonderful performances by the entire...continued

I sat on the side but that wasn't a problem. Engaging play with superb acting.

The performances were excellent. However, I didn't find the story as compelling as I had hoped. The treatment of all the relationships was, in my opinion, too superficial.

I saw "4000 Miles" on the same day that I had lunch with my 16-year old grandson. The play is excellent -- thought-provoking, well-acted and interestingly staged -- but I kept wishing that it could be presented in such a way (I refer to the...continued

Outstanding performances! See this if you can. Funny yet serious portrayal of the similarities of youth and old age. Beautifully done.

The acting was excellent and the concept interesting. I was disappointed with the ending - in fact, I didn't know the play was actually over. There was no resolution.

We thought 4000 was a very sensitive play and well acted.

I went with very high expectations which may have been why I only gave this 3 stars. It was a good play and the acting was terrific, but it didn't move me like I expected it to.

The play had funny and poignant moments, but I was not completely engrossed as I would be during many fine plays. Amy Herzog is a talented playwright, however, and I plan to catch more of her plays in the future.

Excellently-acted, essentially 2-person play concerning interactions of an elderly and failing leftie grandmother and her aimless 21-year-old grandson. Much wit in the script. Ultimately heartwarming story without becoming saccharine. The set...continued

4000 Miles was wonderful! I'll recommend to all my friends. Well . . . some have already seen it and recommended it to me. And my seat was perfect, center orchestra, first row after aisle so no heads in front of me. It's one act. I didn't know...continued

Wasn't crazy about Herzog's more ambitious "After the Revolution," but thought this one hit all the right notes -- believable and charming -- capped by two excellent performances in the lead roles.
