Review from Austin Nation

Well done. The Scottish accents were a bit difficult to understand. I really loved the venue.

Review from dogmom11

Definitely an experience and not the usual linear narrative. I drag my husband to a play every five years or so (I go every week) and he loved this. (-: Fantastically intense and surprisingly funny. Fab Scottish cast + loved the SF Armory Drill...continued

Review from MARINDOC

Innovative and well staged performance illustrating the life, history, traditions of Scottish "Black Watch" from 1725 to current times. Depiction of life in a war zone was especially poignant. It ran gamut from escapism to very touching moments...continued

A truly unique theater experience in the perfect setting. The actors are highly talented, including their singing and choreography, and the sound system brings an added dimension. While is dialogue was sometimes difficult to understand due to...continued

Review from Rich Alsterberg

Fantastic show. The stadium seating was painful at the 1 hour mark and unbearable at the end.

Review from Noriko Bazeley

ALL Actors were fantastic - Story is great-
Too many F words... way too more than entire f-words I heard in my 54 years of my life
Amplifier toward the end of the show was way too noisy that I had to close my ears.
I liked the scene of switching...continued

Review from Carrie M.

An inch deep and a mile wide. The acting in this production was quite good, unfotunately, it could not overcome the play, itself, which took a very shallow view of the Iraq war experience. We left with no new insight, no connection to the...continued

Review from D-Rock

This was a great play. Although I wasn't insanely interested in the topic, it told a great story and did so with some really interesting stagework and very impressive physicality from the actors. Neat to see the Armory Drill Court all decked out...continued

Review from Judy

Very well performed and great staging. The script could have used some more words besides the plentiful unprintable ones, but it was probably true to life. The disbanding of the black watch was not explained very well and I was one of the...continued

Review from Lorraine Mautner

I have gone to a few performances with Goldstar my only complaint is that the seats have been in the "nose bleed" sections.

Review from TheatreAddict

A riveting performance incorporating drama, comedy, video, music, dance, and - in one insanely inspired section: fashion show (mixed with military history). This was my second trip to see the show - and it retained its power on repeat viewing. The...continued

Review from scott

We liked the show. Loved seeing it in the Amory. Great location for this type of show. You can see from anywhere so don't worry if you are in the back or on the side. We did not feel this was a problem to see or hear the production. Yes it is hard...continued

Review from charles Belenky

The SF weekly review is spot on. Weak character development, almost unintelligible accents.

Go see Bengal Tiger at the Bagdad Zoo instead.

Review from Dennis S.

I thought it was an interesting and moving play. I did get tired of the F and C words practically being used seemingly in every sentence. The actors did a very good job and the choreography at the end was beautiful.

It was brilliant but it's over.

Review from Nancy F.

Absolutely worth seeing! Once I settled in, and gave up on looking for a grand narrative arc and just went with the episodic ebb-and-flow of it, I enjoyed it more. (Black Watch has as much as a grand narrative arc and as much as an overarching...continued

Review from Lawrence Helman

Loved the theatre space.
Loved the production values.
Hated this show after 5 min.
No new insight into war , just smoke and mirrors and no content at all. Just yelling, scottish accents which were hard to understand and cursing. The work fuck and...continued

Review from Francesca

Absolutely brilliant. I was concerned about a 1 hour and 50 minute show with no intermission, but I was so captivated and mesmerized from beginning to end, that any break in the performance would have been intrusive and a let-down. I had to...continued
