Has anyone seen the show more the once? If so, did you enjoy it the second time around as much as the first? I'm looking into going again, but wanted opinions first before buying another ticket!

I saw the original cast, but will definitely find a day to see the new ensemble.

Saw it twice in London and once on Broadway. I've gotten more and more out of it each time. It's an incredible piece with more and more to notice and realize.

Saw it in March, bought the play so I could read it, and my friend and I have literally planned a one day trip (we're from Boston originally) to see it again Memorial Day weekend. It's such an intense, rich show that I can't imagine you wouldn't enjoy it (or notice even more) a second time around.

For context, I see most shows more than once, it's just something I love doing and most of the time never tire of it.

I've seen Ferryman 3 times, and I love it more each time! I saw it twice with the original cast, and then again with the new cast. The new cast is stunning, and are so well matched. They went through a whole rehearsal & tech process, and fit the show like a glove.

Seeing it again gives you the opportunity to really dive into it, since you immediately know everyone and the stakes. I describe the show a lot as an excellent 3 hour Netflix crime drama binge, which is something most people do weekly. So, I don't have any problem going again! I could probably see it 3 more times easily.

I normally don’t see shows more than once, but I just HAD to see Brian D’Arcy James, and I loved the show just as much, if not more, the second time.

I've seen it 9 times, 8 with the Irish/Brit cast and 1 with the current cast. I didn't start going until November otherwise I would've gone 20 times.  Loved it. Best thing on Bway since the original cast of Ham.

 I bought the script for $20 after my first attendance to understand the Irish slang.  For example, when one of the thugs confronts the priest and says he used to spend time in the country as a boy and it was "crack," he wasn't referring to drugs but a great time.  Also, I always got the headsets from the audio person in the back of the theater. I use those b/c it drowns out the peripheral noise of people whispering or rattling candy wrappers and it makes the dialog clearer.  It's free, but customary to give the person a $1 tip.

I loved the show especially with the orig cast. Their accents were real. Tho the kids in the show are the originals.  Brooklyn who plays "Cleopatra" or Nunu is terrific. All the kids are.  I may go again to top off my 9 to 10.

Uh I saw this play recently and have to admit I did not like it nearly as much as I wanted to. I thought that the gears of the play became more obvious especially in the third act. I couldn't imagine seeing this again.
