Very unsatisfying. A caveat: the show is still in previews, so it's still a work in progress. However, the problem is the script, not the production, so unless the playwright does a major rewrite, it's not likely to be much better on opening...continued

Thought-provoking play. Very well acted. We both enjoyed it. And as is usually the case at Theater J, we had comfortable, front-and-center seats.

Staging and choreography outstanding. Script interesting, but lacking in dramatic tension. The lead young actress did not carry the part off, unfortunately. The ending was too abrupt, and not closure in any sense. With some work, could be a better...continued

"After the Revolution" was well acted and directed, but the script was weak. Not one of Amy Herzog's better works.

This show was still in previews when I saw it on Sept. 8, so maybe it's not fair to review during previews, but I loved it. I thought it was a poignant well-acted play about the evolving relationship between a father and daughter in a time of...continued

Great play, great acting and the stage design was terrific. The production quality was very high. I also appreciated the after-play discussion - what a great opportunity for everyone. My first time at Theater J. I'll be back!

Outstanding production. Another wonderful show from Theater J. The story was engaging and fluid, the acting especially by the lead was tremendous. A must see.

my experience with Theater J was fine - no problem picking up tickets (even was able to park in their lot). There is never a bad seat in the house (my seats were in the next to last row).
The play was better than okay, but not great/ Too talky,...continued

It was a terrific play. The actors were very animated and the plot very descriptive. I definitely enjoyed it and would recommend it to others. They was wit, politics, humor and thought-provoking moments. In addition, I saw myself and my family...continued

Enjoyable play, particularly for people with background culture of lefty social critiques, and politics. 4 stars for interesting ethical/political conflicts. Also for family dynamics, dialogue and acting.
