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!

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

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.

The story got better and better as the play went on. I felt like I was in their loft with them, as one of their roommates! Keri projected very well, and Adam live is even greater than life than on a screen. I actually thought they had great chemistry, and I was laughing and crying through out. I would actually like to see this again! It's so worth watching!

HUNKA HUNKA BURNIN’ LOVE ADAM DRIVER!
Driver and the actor who plays Larry the gay roommate absolutely are the show - terrific timing, hilarious physical gags and intellectual wit. Yes, even though Driver plays a blue-color “Mr. Wrong” to Keri Russell’s Anna wondering why she can’t see herself marrying the smug rich screenwriter she wants so badly to be Mr. Right. Meanwhile, she is not great in this, but to be fair, I just got done with two months of weekends binging all 6 seasons of The Americans, where she was riveting playing dozens of characters as a Russian spy. She is disappointing in this. Driver is the show - as potent as Cranston is in Network.

Cannot say enough good things: contrary to nay-sayers, the storyline was brilliant, the characters were realistic, and I never laughed so hard at some great lines & dialogue!! (Spoilers!) Keri Russell as Anna, grieving a sudden loss of her dance partner/roommate Robbie, conflicted re: her longtime relationship w/Burton, constant concern for roommate Larry & in a rut re: her dance career, played the role perfectly, finding an inner growth & determination, once the unpredictable Pale (Adam Driver), Robbie's brother, thrusts himself into her life (in more ways than one!). Larry (Brandon Uranowitz) adds charming & clever humor, and distant, static Burton (David Furr) finally finishes a screenplay without Anna's input... symbolic ending to their relationship, And while Anna and Pale DO NOT WANT their attraction to each other, Larry played cupid to bring them together... to let them decide for themselves. Can be uncomfortable at times but its GRIPPING! DAZZLING! LOVED IT!! DO NOT MISS!

DRIVER DROVE THE PLAY.
We saw this while the play was still in reviews. I never laughed so hard my entire week in the city than I did in this performance, but also appreciated the undercurrent of sadness and longing that was present throughout. Driver commanded presence on stage and was definitely channeling a bit of an 80s version of Brando’s Kowalski, but with more sympathetic bend. Great cast, intimate theater.
