ORPHANS

Ended 19 May 2013 after 54 days

The chemistry of this introductory salvo comes from crude but effective elements: an overamplified run of screaming notes from an electric guitar; a ravaged, abandoned-looking room shrouded in sinister lighting.

Don't Miss This One!,

I had never heard of Orphans, but my daughter and I both like Alec Baldwin, so I thought I'd take a chance at the last minute. We got 4th row seats! Couldn't have been better. From the moment this play started, I was completely enrapt. I can't say enough about the fabulously played characters of Philip by Tom Sturridge, Alec Baldwin's Harold and Ben Foster's Treat. I don't usually enjoy anything that is not a spectacular musical, so for me to think that this play was over way too quickly is, in itself, amazing. I would recommend this play to anyone who wants to be completely taken in by the characters, although it may not be appropriate for young children.

awesome acting but too short.,

reviewer: from New York, New York
I went to the play march 30th and had no idea what to expect. The acting was amazing! I was taken into the actors performances and started to forget it was a play. Tom Sturridge and Ben Foster should definitely be up for a Tony award. I would have given the play 5 stars but it was too short. I could not believe how fast it went especially for the money paid for both tickets. Overall the acting made up for everything. Highly recommended.

Amazing,

reviewer: from New York, New York
My friends and I were visiting NYC when we decided to see a play - the story of this one was looking interesting and we knew a bit of the actors; so we gave it a try. What a good and lucky choice! It was beautifully played, we went from laughs to tears within the 1.5 hour spent in the theater. A lot of complicity between the 3 actors, who all showed 3 different kinds of humor and emotion. Particularly terrific job from Tom Sturridge, we decided we'll watch all his movies after the play.The only criticism I could make is that it ended very soon, 5 more minutes to develop the future of the kids would have been appreciated.But anyway, a great moment, congratulations to the three actors - and I definetely strongly recommend this play!
