‘All My Sons’ Broadway Review: Annette Bening, Tracy Letts & Benjamin Walker Resurrect Arthur Miller’s Wartime Casualties

A muddled casting controversy and the resignation of a prominent director no doubt diverted some early public and press attention from the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, but this Broadway production, opening tonight, can handle whatever comes its way. When all’s said and done, Jack O’Brien’s knock-you-from-behind staging is as powerful and sturdy as Miller’s post-war classic itself.

And in a shattering performance that adds yet another layer to her quietly remarkable career, Annette Bening finds grace notes in the role of the grieving Gold Star mother that brings the character to vivid, brutalized life.

Co-starring Tracy Letts (August: Osage County) and Benjamin Walker (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), All My Sons is typically considered Miller’s stepping stone to, or perhaps heralding of, the masterpieces: 1949’s Death of a Salesman, 1953’s The Crucible and 1955’s A View From The Bridge.
