Review from Susan Landay Kimmel

It's a terrific play -- more than just the political controversy, there's a subplot of family dynamics and a love triangle. Really enjoyed the workshop format and the exceptional panel discussion afterwards. Great seats even though fairly last...continued

Review from Elliot

Goldstar provided excellent seats. The play is extraordinary. An unexpected post-performance panel discussion was with superstars on the subject matter. "Loved it" does not properly characterize the experience, as the play is controversial and...continued

Review from Misa Sugui

It was a workshop, and they were collecting the audience's feed back of the play. Personally I didn't know the history or the background of that region, so it was very educational. The actors were passionate and really portrayed characters. I'm...continued

Review from Anne McKnight

Saw the Admission at Studio. Beautifully acted, with all the points of view about the Israeli-Palestinean conflict portrayed in dramatic and gripping ways. Be prepared to think and challenge your preconceptions.

Review from Goldstar Member

Theatre J never disappoints. Once again, this production was totally engrossing and haunting. Often I feel as if another viewing of the play is worthwhile - and so it would have been with "The Admission" - had the play not been totally sold...continued

Incredible performances by the actors. A very thought provoking plot about competing narratives of history and the affects of war.
