Review from James Cunningham

A wonderful play, funny and sad, touching, has a lot to say and says it well. The production was great, and the cast marvelous. Had a wonderful evening.

Performances were excellent. Great cast. The play is well written (no wonder it won awards). Raises important questions and doesn't offer any simple solutions. If you remember Hansberry's Raisin in the Sun and want to see what another playwright...continued

Review from Ruby Haughton-Pitts

Clybourne Park is well performed and takes a look back and forward on the state of bias in America. A fan of A Raisin in Sun, I was worried that a modern rendition might not make the grade. I was very pleased and my concerns completely removed....continued

Review from Dennis

So much fun. Three realtors.....really appreciated how far we've come. The set, casting and writing all well done. Started out slow, funny by the end of the first half and hysterical second half. A definite must see!

This is the best play I've seen at the Steppenwolf in a few years. The play itself was very well written and the cast had great timing and delivery. It brought up social issues of the past and present without being too heavy-handed. Well done!

Great acting and interesting premise, but fell a little short of all the hype it's receiving.

Review from Diane Jaskolka

A mix of history, humor and race implications on neighborhoods without being offensive. Goes both ways over a 50 year period.

Fabulous acting, direction and production values. Playwright Bruce Norris' best script to date--not sure it, as a Pulitzer-price winner, stacks up against Letts' August: Osage County, either dramatically or thematically. Personally, I found the...continued

It was a great performance.The writing was wonderful. I look forward to other performances at Steppenwolf. The set design was like sitting in the Cosby's livingroom. I highly recommend it. See it before it is gone.
