A DISAPPOINTMENT

Russell was a disappointment: one-note, robotic, and perhaps unprepared. The male leads had much more energy and were worth seeing, but everyone needs to be mic’ed. Half the time, no one projected well enough to be heard. We were in Orch Row K and no one could hear what Driver said at the end. A woman nearby with an assisted listening device couldn’t hear either. This definitely needs work and isn’t worth the money as it stands.

SO VERY DISAPPOINTED....DON'T DO THIS

I was SO looking forward to this, and was so disappointed. For me, Keri Russell was the draw. I knew nothing about the show. Now, the little I do know (we left at intermission) I don't like. The story (I can't say "plot," as there was not - was extremely unrealistic but it MIGHT have worked had the actors involved had chemistry. Trust me, they did not! Not a drop. Keri Russell was basically Elizabeth Jennings (which didn't work here) and Adam Driver was simply, not very convincing. I'd suggest staying far away. I see lots of shows and have never, ever left a bad review before. Do yourself a favor - stay far away.

RIVETING

Adam driver had a touch of Brando in his emotional portrayal of a grieving older brother.keri Russell held her own. The two other male leads were good.

LOVED IT

I thought Burn This was hilarious. I wasn’t expecting a comedy at all. It was the first night of previews so give them a break if they weren’t loud enough. They can fix that. The range of emotions that Adam Driver had really showed his versatility as an actor and I thought all the cast was very good. I loved it!

MEH

It’s true - Keri Russell and Adam Driver had zero chemistry. I lioved this play with John Malkovich and Joan Allen - this new production was a bit one-note with flat deliveries and a cringe-worthy emotional scene by Driver. However, it’s still a great play, and the guy who played roommate Larry was absolutely hilarious. The second act was better than the first, BYW.

5.0 star rating Beth J. from New York, New York

VERY FUNNY

Uranowitz playing Larry was a riot and there were a couple visual gags with Driver as Pale that I don’t think anyone was expecting. You could hear the whole theater cracking up, very entertaining overall

LOVED IT

they must have fixed the sound issue because I was able to hear from back of the orchestra. I thought the actors were great and there were some great, funny lines.
