Goldstar provided excellent seats. The play is extraordinary. An unexpected post-performance panel discussion was with superstars on the subject matter. "Loved it" does not properly characterize the experience, as the play is controversial and...continued

It was a workshop, and they were collecting the audience's feed back of the play. Personally I didn't know the history or the background of that region, so it was very educational. The actors were passionate and really portrayed characters. I'm...continued

This experience has to be evaluated on two levels: (1) Should a "Jewish" theater present a play that examines a controversial period in Israeli history and that suggests that Israeli soldiers may have committed atrocities in 1948? (2) How does it...continued

This is a first=rate play! It is complex, subtle, and deals with significant topics --fathers and sons, justice, remembering and forgetting, hiding the truth and facing the truth, and the consequences of war for subsequent generations. It is...continued

It's a terrific play -- more than just the political controversy, there's a subplot of family dynamics and a love triangle. Really enjoyed the workshop format and the exceptional panel discussion afterwards. Great seats even though fairly last...continued

Saw the Admission at Studio. Beautifully acted, with all the points of view about the Israeli-Palestinean conflict portrayed in dramatic and gripping ways. Be prepared to think and challenge your preconceptions.

Theatre J never disappoints. Once again, this production was totally engrossing and haunting. Often I feel as if another viewing of the play is worthwhile - and so it would have been with "The Admission" - had the play not been totally sold...continued
