The balance of complex psychological drama, pervasive melancholy and acid humor is riveting.

reviewer: from New York, New York
this play was very entertaining and is filled with great performances of all three actors. It is well worth a trip to the theater. It is a great production of the play written by harold pinter.

Not worth the cost,

These stars, with the exception of the actor who plays Jerry, are not suitable for the stage. Two dimentional performances. Boring.

Very dissapointing,

reviewer: from New York, New York
I did not enjoy the script of the play or the acting. Daniel Craig was great, charismatic, a totally different character from James Bond. It was almost a revelation. The rest of the cast had very disappointing performances. This play is really not worth seeing.

Weisz performance disappointing,
Oct 12, 2013
reviewer: from Alexandria, VA
With an all star cast I expect an outstanding performance. The opening scene is about two characters that have so much history between the two of them, yet Weisz came across as just reciting lines. The emotion and believability of her character didn't come out until the last two scenes. Craig gave an amazing performance. He was so natural and broke the stiltedness of the previous scene. Spall's performance was very good and could have been outstanding, but when you are feeding off someone else who is so stilted it is hard to shine. Craig and Spall carried the play. Perhaps it wasn't a good idea to cast a husband and wife together when the topic is betrayal.
