The play is almost as exuberantly funny as it is powerfully theatrical, and its marvelous cast ... infuses the play with such life-affirming light that when, in the play’s explosive ending, darkness threatens to swallow them up, it comes as a shattering shock.

Its populous ensemble is a seamless unit, led with powerful feeling by Paddy Considine and Laura Donnelly, along with several other outstanding holdovers from the original London cast.... The performances are too good, right across the board, to single out all that merit recognition. CONTINUE READING THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Masterfully directed by Oscar-winner Sam Mendes. In lesser hands, “The Ferryman” may have come off as pure hokum, but Mendes makes it absolutely entrancing, bringing out many intense, full-bodied performances, particularly from Donnelly, who brilliantly conveys Caitlin’s raw vitality, vulnerability and stifled rage. “The Ferryman” is certainly reminiscent of “August: Osage County,” another long-winded family melodrama that managed to pack a powerful punch. Many other plays are opening on Broadway this fall, but they are unlikely to match the excitement and finely-tuned ensemble acting of “The Ferryman.” CONTINUE READING THE AM NEW YORK REVIEW
