Great Play, HORRIBLE Audience, Jun 02, 2014
reviewer: Anya Marlin from New Jersey, USA
While Chris O'Dowd as Lennie was completely captivating, James Franco's acting range consisted primarily of raising the volume of his voice now and then. His
acting style just doesn't translate to the stage and didn't match the realism and intensity of O'Dowd's. George is solid, but not stiff. However, none of this
seems to bother the many bimbos in the audience who, raised on reality shows and video gaming and social media, can't seem to tell the difference between
comedy and tragedy.....no, it's really not funny when Lennie snaps the neck of Curley's wife, or when he's shot by George. A gasp would be more fitting than
giggles, which completely ruined the mood and play for me. This generation who can view blood and gore on Game of Thrones every week can't seem to handle
a pretend staged gun shot...who knew? I want to apologize to all the fine actors, especially Jim Parrack as Slim, Jim Morton as Candy and Ron Jones as Crooks.
You deserve a better audience!

Best spontaneous decision , May 14, 2014
reviewer: KATERINA from ATHENS, GREECE
I visited NYC last week and walked pass Longacre Theatre. I bought a ticket on impulse, mainly because I like the actors playing. I have rarely enjoyed a play so much,, excellent acting and stage setting.

An extra bonus during my visit.

Exquisite, May 08, 2014
reviewer: Joe from Maryland
Do not miss this play. Even though I had read 'Of Mice and Men', seeing this play was like hearing the story for the first time. This, to me, is a true indicator of how great this performance was done. The
cast did a wonderful job. Chris O'Dowd was amazing. I'm sure, somewhere, John Steinbeck is beaming with pride over this fantastic portrayal of his novel. I would easily enjoy seeing this play again.

Better Than Expected, May 08, 2014
reviewer: Rebecca Hall from New York, New York
Was thrilled to be able to see this show on May 3rd. All of the cast were great and Chris O'Dowd did not disappoint in any way. He pulled you into the story and was perfect in the part of Lennie
After the show he graciously met with his fans and a young girl requested a picture with him which he willingly supplied with a kind smile. The only drawback was difficulty hearing at times. Great play.
See it.
