Number of reviews: 11



3.0 star rating Louise Bell from Ohio, USA


My husband and I were familiar with the story. As classic theater, it was more dated than I expected. Hence the reason for the 3 stars. The acting was wonderful. James Earl Jones and Phylicia Rashad lived up to expectations. We could hear everyone but Maggie. Her acting was fine. She did not project her voice enough to be heard. We missed about half of her dialogue. The brother and sister were great and we would have liked to have seen more of them. They were especially good when their children performed for Big Daddy. A warning is in order for those not familiar with this play. Many in the audience apparently came for the stars not realizing the serious nature of the play nor expecting some of the language from these particular actors. During intermission, there were many shocked comments by others.

We attended Fri - May 30th, 2008 and was very disappointed in the sound in the Theatre. We could not hear the actors in the Mezzaniene -- some of their words were not enunsiated and volume was low. Others around us were complaining as well that they could not understand them or hear them. We would like a refund of our tickets.

I sat on the 2nd row of the mezzanine level, 4/28. I and many of the fans that watched the show intensely could not hear many of the words that Big Daddy was saying. It looks like from the other reviews I read, others couldn't hear, at times, as well. I think the theater could use more microphones and speakers. I was upset to say the least. Also, theater goers need to have more theater etiquette and respect for others and turn "off" those cell phones! RUDE!

I was very disappointed - Terrence Howard and Phylicia Rashad did not perform on May 16th and I paid double the price on the secondary market. Had great seats but had trouble hearing Maggie - projection problems. The audience was not familiar with the classic and they were cell phone junkies. Help me ..I can't stop whining!
