The show was outstanding!!!! This is real theater - theater
about common people who spoke plainly, had honest values, and created families and communities that were loving. It captures an ideal - supposedly American - but it's a universal ideal. And it profoundly asks and answers: "What's life about - how do we connect to each other - and what about death?" Thornton Wilder was amazing - don't miss this wonderful play - and the wonderful, talented actors, director, and crew that is bringing it to you.

Pros: The play/ playwright - the acting ensemble- the directing

Cons: None if you get there on time.

Please beware!! This theater has a no-exceptions policy on allowing ticket holders entrance to the theater once a performance has begun. And they start their performances exactly on time! I showed up at 7:34 for a 7:30 performance. I'm a frequent theater-attendee, and in my experience, shows always start at least 5 minutes late. So I wasn't too concerned when my out-of-town-guests got stuck in a bit of traffic coming into the city. I was shocked, upon my arrival 4 minutes late, to be told that we wouldn't be allowed to see the show. I explained my situation to the snippy box office manager, to no avail. Not only were my out-of-town guests extremely disappointed to miss the play, but it really ruined the evening (I scrambled to find an appropriate event, at the very last minute, for a diverse group of age ranges and interests). The theater refused to refund the ticket price, but instead offered vouchers that can only be used on the day of a performance, with no guarantee that the new tickets will be similar to your original tickets. Since I find this theater's policy completely unreasonable relative to all other NYC theaters I've frequented, I wanted to warn other ticket holders.

Pros: I wouldn't know, since I was denied entrance to the theater!

Cons: Ticket holders must arrive super EARLY in order to gain entrance to the theater.
