As I've said before, I'm pretty bad at writing reviews because (a) I tend to like everything and (b) if I don't like something, I don't want to make anyone feel bad by saying so. So it was with some trepidation that I decided to review the Stratford Festival's production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, because I have disliked all my past encounters with Arthur Miller and didn't see how that was possibly going to change.
Before I start my review, this is what All My Sons is about:
As you can see, there's a lot of angst. I'm allergic to angst. So... how did I like it?
Seriously, this was really confusing for me because I went in 100% sure that I would enjoy the performances but hate the play... but I ended up loving EVERYTHING.
I'm not making this up, you guys. I enjoyed an Arthur Miller play. Send help.
