The acting was great. The story was very relevant and needs to be heard. The conversation was interesting and ending was stimulating. Highly recommended.

5.0 star rating Jacob Jones from Chicago, Illinois


This was a wonderfully performed show. Acting was solid all the way around. The play is beautifully written, and it is relatable. You could connect with the characters, and it felt like real life. It was a solid day at the theater, and one of the better shows I have had the pleasure of seeing.

5.0 star rating from Seattle, Washington


Riveting material. The script included all areas of struggle and triumph no matter the generation, gender, or socio-economic status. It hit me with a full scale of emotions. The stage setting used every inch of a three dimensional platform - brilliant. Despite a large person in front of me, I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The play makes for great conversation after.

2.0 star rating Season Ticket Holder from Des Moines, Iowa


One of the worst plays I've ever seen - and I've seen Shakespeare performed entirely in Russian! I took my husband because he loves Richard Thomas, and I was delightfully surprised to see Pamela Reed was co-starring. (I'm surprised this combo wasn't publicized a bit more.) They were great; all the actors were strong. The set was intriguing. And there was the occasional strong humorous line, and the storyline is relatable. It's just the entirety of the content, man. Talk about a bag of downers! Alzheimers, alcoholism, loss of jobs, loss of love, aging, age-gap...oh, and death. But the kicker? The nail in the coffin? The last 10-15 minutes of the play is performed virtually in the dark! One lantern that allows acting via silhouette. And when the lights went black, no one clapped because we didn't know whether or not it was over. No wonder they held a talk session afterwards - people couldn't understand it! I would have given it 1 star, but the strong cast wouldn't let me.

5.0 star rating Amanda Aikman from Everett, Washington


I had read the script before seeing this magnificent play at the Rep. the production is absolutely impeccable — funny, bleak, complex, subtle — it was a thorough-going Broadway theatre experience. Thrilling. A great aesthetic experience. In response to your questions: I would not take very elderly people to this show, for thematic reasons.

5.0 star rating Sean Lane from Seattle, Washington


There is a good reason why this stunning drama won the Tony Award for Best Play. It's a work of art. Subtle, deeply emotional and hilarious at the same time, it also asks an audience to think, something sorely lacking in drama today. Seattle is indeed a lucky city to be hosting the kick off for the national tour. It's a don't miss for any theatre goer who cares about humanity and the future of theatrical literature.

The Emperor has no clothes folks. Save your money and instead just spend a day with a friend visiting his dim witted family and relatives. You'll regret it but at least you'll be doing a nice deed instead of sitting through this dog and feeling like a fool for listening to the critics who seem to be enthralled in finding meaning in something with less substance than a piece of chewed gum.

What we thought

intriguing INSIGHTFUL Encouraging

Highlights the ongoing issues of depression, indulgence, aging and the distressing notion that America's next generation is flooded with debt before they even begin

As the family prepares for a Thanksgiving dinner, served on paper plates, we understand that family is everything. The family dynamics are well studied by playwright Stephen Karam in this intriguing and insightful production.
