Saw in London west end production, looks like the same cast. If you love quirky Irish/British humour and movies like In Bruges, you'll love this show.

I agree with the reviewer...I saw it and was underwhelmed with the play's one-note characters and repetitive humor...the audience seemed to not mind...laughing aloud each time a character repeated the same shtick over and over again. I did like the acting a great deal; I just wish it was a better play.

I must take a contrary position to Mr Cote regarding his review. I saw this show in London and returned to see it again this past week at the Cort, and I could not disagree more about his commentary. I'm not sure how many people really rely on critics' opinions any more before deciding to attend an event, but it would be a crime if this review kept a reader from seeing a marvelous show with an absolutely first-rate cast. Obviously Mr Radcliffe will be the big draw but one of the more remarkable things about "Inishmaan" is that the 'star' melds perfectly into the company; his outstanding performance, full of quiet pathos and longing for answers as to what his life has been about and where it is going, is just one of the many outstanding efforts given by this superb company. Even if Irish humor and attitude is not your cup of tea, you will spend the bulk of the show laughing but be prepared to have your heart broken several times. At the end, the good people turn out to be not-so-good and the bad ones are somehow not bad at all. The trick is not to figure out who's who, just to enjoy the wistful turns of fate that make them out to be who they are. I don't often agree with Ben Brantley - who had nothing but raves for the playwright and cast- but I totally concur with him when he says this show will stick with you long after you leave the theater. In short: Don't listen to Cote - head to the Cort and see one of the best plays to grace the stage in a long time.
