Absolutely wonderful. I was doubtful about the fact that it was a musical, but they did a really good job of integrating it in a natural way. The lighting was fantastic and the sound designer deserves an award for doing so well in such an echoey...continued

An amazing intense performance! So worth seeing and Goldstar was super helpful! No complications at all getting the tickets and the seating was great! The way that the Armory is set up, it is really hard to get a bad seat in the house anyway....continued

Interesting performance, sometimes difficult to understand the accents. Hardworking talented cast but difficult subject.

A Scottish friend writes: Personally I am unsure what the main focus of the play is. The folly of the Iraq invasion? Perhaps. I thought of it more as a depiction of the unravelling of Scottish society particularly in its male, working class...continued

An exciting, different sort of theatre experience. It was good to get another point of view on the war in Iraq.

Black Watch is a shining example of what theatre can deliver in artistic experience that other media can't. It is just enthralling, and the choreography and unfolding of this multi-layered story as compelling as anything I've ever seen in a...continued

Brillant play/musical! Ten men! Low price friendly/secure parking across the street. When I went to will call they upgraded my ticket, (I got a fantastic seat!) I would not be doing this review unless I wanted everyone to go to Black Watch.

Constant shouting and F & C words. Boring story. Don't waste money.

Great show, really fabulous tickets at a better price than anywhere else. The tickets were ready for us to pick up before the show- could not be happier

I kept waiting for it to become poignant. It never made it.

Campbell was good. He almost convinced me he could have been in the military... almost.

The others, to varying degrees, not so much. Nothing in their stance and demeanor reminded...continued

I really appreciated that they didn't start the performance until everyone had used the facilities (too few restrooms for the woman, though). The roaming spot lights over the audience before the show were irritating (I wondered how someone with...continued

I went to the show largely to support the ACT's decision to mount this production in the historic San Francisco Armory in the Mission. I'm not usually a big fan of topical current-event themed drama, but I found this show to be moving, funny,...continued

Loved this performance. The Armory is a great space and ACT used it well. Black Watch was funny and thoughtful. The choreography was brilliant. I love those Scottish accents, but I feel like I want to see it again so I can catch some of the lines...continued
