The play was a typical witty Tom Stoppard experience. I saw the play 30 or 40 years ago when it first came out and I am afraid it has aged as have I. A play about marital infidelity--and no one is ashamed of breaking his/her vows or afraid of...continued

I'm a Stoppard fan. But this is a poor play, disjointed, too long, needing a lot of editing. Too much navel-gazing by the characters, who are in a continuous circle of adultery, reminiscent of "La Ronde." The acting was excellent, and when...continued

Mr Stoppard can deliver dialogue like not one else can - well maybe Aaron Sorkin comes close. My second time for The Real Thing - wonderful play, terrific acting, great staging. The Studio continues to deliver Mr Stoppard like no other can.

3.5 stars would be more accurate. Stoppard isn't always easy to act, his language dominates so much that I feel some of the actors struggled a bit. Overall though, this play was great. The actor who played Henry delivered most of the speeches very...continued
