I loved the plays. The acting was terrific; the scripts very good; the plays very powerfully performed. Showing these plays as a series adds to the meaning of each, as each sheds light on the others. I highly recommend them.

Saw In the Red and Brown Water. A delightful, insightful production. Sterling script, stellar cast. Reminded me just why I love live theatre.

I thought that this play was very unique with its use of third person dialog. The set was sparse, but that just addded to the production. The play was well acted and I enjoyed it.

Just saw Red and Brown Water, which is the most entertaining play I have seen in many years. Brilliant writing, acting, and staging. The dialogue is wise and naughty: language to be savored. The actors are so engaging, so talented and so...continued

Thought that both the story lines and the acting were excellent. This is definitely the most memorable play I've seen in the last 5 years. I echo the other reviewer's comment about seeing "In the Red and Brown Water" first.

The plays were great. Good acting and thought provoking scripts. Would recommend that you see In The Red and Brown Water first to fully understand the chronology.

This was a great series. The idea to focus on different members of the same family was innovative and well executed. I felt I got the most out of it by seeing In the Red and Brown Water first, but my friend enjoyed The Brothers Size/Marcus even...continued

I'd seen the PLAY 1,with its unnecessarily grisly
and much-foreshadowed ending, previous to this and found these two better.Cast is superb but plays remain too sketchy and playwright's having characters recite stage directions("(X) enters the...continued

Play #2 ("The Brothers Size") was wonderful -- beautifully written, beautifully acted and directed with perfect simplicity. Give it four stars. While it meandered, there are some lovely moments and fine acting scattered through "In The Red and...continued

As the actors declared, "The end of the play", there was not a sound in the full Steppenwolf house.

Why? These two parts of this trilogy are simply brilliant and totally engaging!

Kudos to one superb ensemble and direction.

We saw In the Red and Brown Water. This is the first in the series of the three plays and seeing it gives you a better understanding of how the characters in all three plays relate. While it was a very engaging story, I do wish that there was...continued

Beautiful production. Really glad I saw it, and even more glad I saw it before the other two plays in the trilogy. Although they say it is okay in any order, I believe I understood the characters and their relationship to each other better as a...continued
