    "'Salesman,' now and forever a great play, never quite achieves greatness on the stage this time around."
    Ben Brantley for NY Times

    "Powerful and emotionally rich revival."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "Despite its central miscasting, the production is quite watchable."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Intellectually moving but not emotionally shattering."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Under the direction of Mike Nichols, the production overall has an uneven, uninflected quality, without the dramatic solidity or shadings of personality that make a work spring to vivid life."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Outstanding production."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "A blue-ribbon production in every way."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Searing Broadway revival... emotionally wrenching production."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Masterfully helmed by Mike Nichols."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
