There was something flat about it, something missing. It had its moments but as a whole, for me, it didn't gel.
I often have an issue with Sher's stage work having a somewhat over-studied quality to it and unfortunately this was the case here. He seemed ill at ease but it was an early preview and maybe he'll warm up, I hope so anyway. Everyone else was good.

I've seen him quite a few times and never seen a weak performance, he's very reliable.
I'm starting to feel like I'm the perennial guy on the outside looking in when it comes to Miller. A really intriguing premise of a play, with a very good cast, in a small fringe-or-call-it-what-you-will venue (my favourite kind) and it still doesn't fully click with me!

I've read The Crucible and it's very compelling, and is of great interest to me as the HUAC era is a kind of pet subject of mine. Similarly, other of his works have fascinating subject matters. But having read and seen Salesman and Sons - and I realise this will be regarded as theatre heresy by some - no, they just didn't do it for me. As Weez said above, that 'click' has never happened for me.
