This evening, the third Broadway revival of of Arthur Miller's seminal classic All My Sons opens at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
Directed by Simon McBurney, this latest incarnation of the post-war play -- which originally graced a Main Stem stage in 1947, just two years after the close of World War II -- stars John Lithgow as Joe Keller, Dianne Wiest as his wife Kate, Patrick Wilson as their son Chris, and Katie Holmes as the fiancée of their other son.
Will critics take to this latest retelling? Find out tomorrow as I provide a snapshot of their reviews in my critics' capsule.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
