2014 Tony Winner

A bona fide ensemble piece, in which we're newly and acutely aware of the dynamics that define the Youngers.

No Longer "Cautiously Optimistic!",
Mar 31, 2014
reviewer: from Cincinnati, Ohio
I did not want to miss the play, but my schedule only allowed me a day to fly to New York (a one day turn around) and see the play during the "preview performance" Saturday evening, March 22nd! I was "cautiously optimistic" that the "previews" could only get better the closer it got to opening night! -- but, you know, I truly was like "hmmm preview - I don't know"! Well. I thought to myself as I sat solo, and watched - Ms. LaTanya Jackson - God did that thang --- you were superb!!! I love Dianahh Carroll, but it's your season - the one day trip did not disappoint during previews!!! Mr. Washington, and to the others - equal kudos.... Whatever happened to a dream deferred .. No short changes during previews - no dream deferred here!!! The symbolism behind that play forever keeps me humble - best wises as you all prepare for your run - GE guarantees no less than an ovation nightly!!!M. Springs, Cincinnati, Ohio

Outstanding Performance in a Brilliant Broadway Play,
Mar 31, 2014
reviewer: from New York, New York
What a treat it was to see Denzel Washington performing live on stage. I had to pinch myself at the privilege. What was amazing, was that he didn't outshine the other cast members. They were equally as brilliant and made up a powerful broadway ensemble. The story was real, touching and emotionally charged. Instead of it dragging you down and being too heavy, the acting and the humor kept it alive. This was one of the best broadway shows I have seen. If you can get tickets, hurry up, they are selling fast and you'll be sorry if you miss this one.

This was truly the best show I've been to. Denzel and the rest of the cast was simply electrifying.

Broadway at its finest,
Mar 23, 2014
reviewer: from Toronto, Canada
An amazing performance from an amazing cast.Broadway has never looked better. Denzel pours his heart and soul into his character as does everyone else. Sean Patrick Thomas was outstanding in his role. Definitely worth the price of admission....and then some.
