While it's not a glowing review, it's well-written, thoughtful, and from the paper of record, so I would be remiss if I don't share it here.
Jason Zinoman does highlight some performances and moments that I agree are worthy of praise. I don't agree with every word, but I wouldn't, would I? I don't really see the show as being about self-indulgent actors, for example, and that idea is headlined.
To really understand what all the fuss is about, you really should see it for yourself. It's only $18 and it runs for four more performances.
Update: Nytheatre.com's review is up as well.
