i very much enjoyed my evening at the belrose. they serve a lovely meal for a cheap price, and the theater is compelling and inspiring. i'd give it four stars.

Mr. Willis, the only thing more stunning than this review is the production itself. In 55 years of theater-going I have never seen a play--an interesting, serious and widely respected play--so badly and amateurishly mangled. The direction and acting are so bizarre that the original material is simply unrecognizable. A "hearty go at an awkward script" Mr. Willis? How could one possibly know anything about the play from what transpired here? In my book, the Belrose production of The Big Knife isn't second fiddle, it doesn't play in the orchestra. May Clifford Odets rest in peace!
