REVIEWS ROUND-UP

"Antony Sher also gives a magnificent performance as Phillip. With his over-deliberate speech, slicked-down hair and neurotically precise movements, he shows us a man who has elevated status above passion and human feeling; yet, when he finally and angrily confronts his patronising estate-agent boss, your hear distinct echoes of Death of a Salesman."

"Despite Miller’s occasional clumsiness, Broken Glass is a rich and deeply-felt drama - and one that richly deserves to thrive."

"Iqbal Khan's production is not as intense as when I saw it at the more intimate Tricyle last year, but it remains taut and intelligent, and Sher is utterly compelling."

"If the concluding scene slips into didacticism, Miller’s message is loud and clear – that to deny who or what you are is to deny your position in the world and your common respons­ibility for “stuff” that “happens”."

" Tara Fitzgerald strikes me as too glamorous and drily self-possessed to have accepted the marriage for so long on these humiliating terms or to capture Sylvia's stricken confusion. As a result, for all the brooding plangency of the onstage cello solos, there's a level of pathos unplumbed here."
