Reviews

Bruce Weber, The New York Times

"Craig Lucas's new adaptation keeps the play's avant-garde feel alive more than a century after it was written...it's an amazing play that still terrifies with its insoluble equation of sex, class and death."

Victor Gluck, Backstage

"Craig Lucas' mission in adapting Strindberg's Miss Julie was to remove the fussy Victorian attitudes that have hampered previous translations and are not faithful to the original. He has succeeded admirably in this new version."

Ernio Hernandez, Playbill

“A Psycho-sexual drama filled with obsession, ambition and manipulation.”
