As Joe, Combs admirably captures a man who can't accept or acknowledge the magnitude of his own guilt. And Frank's Kate is a woman who can't allow herself to admit the truth because the result would be unbearable. Parraga-Wills' Chris is a passionate idealist traumatized by the emerging facts. And Schoenecker's Ann is a young woman riddled with anxiety because she possesses the final bit of incriminating evidence that the others don't know about. Helen O'Brien creates a potent figure as an ambitious and mercenary wife, and Bruce Nehlsen provides an engaging cameo as her amiable doctor husband. - RECOMMENDED

Still trying to recover from the emotional wallop of this remarkable production of Arthur Miller's 1947 play, whose themes and characters still resonate so strongly today. Pitch-perfect performances were notable for both subtlety and complexity, and direction was first-rate. Bravo to all involved!!!

Directed by Linda Alznauer and produced by Diane Frank and Alznauer for The Group Rep, the story is incredibly emotional and deals with themes quintessential to understanding what post-war life was like in America in the 1940s. America came out on top and therefore men were viewed as strong and able-bodied who were never seen displaying sorrow and other deep-seated emotions that surrounded death and loss. ...I enjoyed GRT's production of ALL MY SONS.
