I will skip comments on the play, which is well know.

*Please note that I attended a preview performance - so perfection was not expected

The performance showed promise. A few lines were fumbled, a few errors made, but all in all it was...continued

Review from newengland

This is the kind of play that is ideal for a theater as intimate as the Raven East. The characters were wonderfully drawn, the stage beautifully used. My only regret is that there had to be an intermission. Luckily the cast was able to...continued

Review from Pyne

The play could have been a springboard for some fabulous performances, but wasn't. They overacted the "angry" part, which might have been more effective if it was a little more subtle. That said, I love this theater, so I took a chance. Not...continued

Review from LaLa

Went with mother who saw original movie and niece that read the book in high school and we all thought it was an excellent play. I thought all of the actors did a wonderful job and were cast perfectly.

Wonderfully performed play. We took our 25 and 17 year old children and they were impressed as well. Highly recommended.

Review from Bob4232

This was outstanding! Great realism and energy, too. I particularly enjoyed the play because I have served on six juries myself. Two federal and four Cook County (two of which were murder trials).

Review from SylBurt

I remember the original "12 Angry Men" from 1957. The 1957 jurors included the likes of [Fonda, E.G.Marshall, Balsma, Begley, and others] so my expectations for this Raven East Stage production was not too high.

I'm please to report that...continued

Review from urszulak

I thoroughly enjoyed the play. The cast did an excellent job and was very in character and believable. Yes, there were some dialogue flubs, but it actually was not too noticeable since people can mess up when they are upset in reality.

Review from Sandy

The acting was excellent very convincing. You felt like you were part of the jury as if you were one of the characters. I though it was clever to have a mixed race jury. I highly recommend this play for everyone to see.

The plot was interesting but the actors were awesome! They were so filled of emotion that you forgot they were actors and believed that this was actually their lives that they were talking about. My husband and I really enjoyed the play and...continued

Review from Neil Scheufler

I thought the production was very well done. The energy was great and the intensity was extremely good. Even though I knew the story, it still drew you into it. I really felt part of the production.
