I have seen hundreds of shows on broadway and even more off broadway and in regional theatre and this one is in the lower depths. Adam driver was terrible just awful, how Is he a graduate from Juilliard? He has this big emotional moment and it felt like I was watching a bad high school actor emote. The people giving this a positive review must be star struck by seeing a Star Wars star on stage. In my top 5 worst broadway performances of all time. Keri russel was not great either but she is a tv actor working on stage so it’s kind of to be expected. At least she didn’t ham it up like a community theatre hack like driver did. Just terrible.

The character Pale is supposed to be the show. Instead and unfortunately, there is no organic energy from Adam Driver and he completely misses the mark. The play therefore becomes something else, mostly about the other three actors, who very much carry the show particularly in Act II.

1.0 star rating James Finderworth from New York, New York


I cannot believe this is on Broadway. It was a total waste of money! The book was awful, the acting was flat and the production was stale. Throughout the second act there literally was a man snoring out loud. Save your money people. Go see Network instead.

5.0 star rating Benjamin Johnston from SLC, Utah


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.

5.0 star rating Kris from New York, New York


I saw this on the first night of previews and thought it was riveting. Adam Driver enters and sucks up all the air in the theater. He is fantastic and you cannot takes your eyes off him. I thought it was excellent. I see tons of shows in NYC and this is one of my favorite plays.

We were quite entertained by this - although Russel is not the best of it.. Does anyone remember the Titel of the last song that was playing??

4.0 star rating KP from New York, New York


This play is in its third week of previews now, and I think they've worked out many of the kinks. All four actors do good work: Keri Russell's performance feels lived in and natural much of the time, though I felt like she was still working out how to play some moments. Adam Driver commands the stage, and while he consistently entertains, his character was a bit of an enigma -- not sure if that's his fault or the playwright's. Brandon Uranowitz does a great job with a role that borders on caricature. David Furr is solid and dependable. I was surprised by how genuinely funny the play was. The 2½ hour running time flew by.
