Transcendentally Good., Jul 13, 2011
reviewer: Daniel Coo from Bradford, ON Canada
This is a great production of a great play. Through some kind of magic, playwright and cast and crew have squeezed the entire contemporary consciousness of a nation into a single play. You might wonder how the culture that gave us Shakespeare also gave us Benny Hill, or how The News of the World flourished when The Times, Telegraph and The Guardian were also available. Some of the answers are here in Jerusalem. This production will join the ranks of other milestones in modern theatre like The Cherry Orchard (with which it shares more than a few themes) A Streetcar Named Desire, Look Back in Anger, and the work of Havel, Stoppard and Fugard. Unforgettable theatre.

Astonishing, Jun 22, 2011
reviewer: Monilooch from New York
Francine is brain dead and doesn't belong in a theatre.
Mark Rylance's artistry is beyond description. I have been very lucky to have seen the very finest the arts have to offer over the last 25 years and I have never ever heard or seen anything like the magic that man creates on stage. He is a force of nature and a true artistic genius. A word I never use unless is it absolutely warrented. DO NOT MISS IT.

harrassment, Jun 11, 2011
reviewer: Nyc lover from Mississippi
I could not enjoy this play because of the rudeness of the management and ushers. I have never been treated so badly in all of my life. I felt I was being threatened by Mafia because of a lie told them by some attendants about disturbing them by opening my bag of M%M's, that were sold to me by theater. This is BEFORE play started. Take my word for it, don't go to that theater. It is scary!

You'll never see better!, Jun 07, 2011
reviewer: Barbara from Rochester New York
Incredible theater experience (this comes from an old NY girl who went to school and worked in the city!) -
Last minute first and second row seat, extreme right, for a party of six, turned out to be excellent. The performances, especially Mr. Rylance, were SUPERB! Memorable!
Definitely not for kids.

A Stellar Performance by Mark Rylance, Jun 06, 2011
reviewer: Paul from Miami
Although some are apparently quibbling with the play itself, the performance by Mark Rylance is truly one for the ages, reminiscent of Olivier in The Entertainer. I don't know what the previous review was referencing, but at the matinee Saturday June 4th, the standing ovation was thunderous and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any serious theatre lover.
