Having never seen the show, this seems like a good production to experience it with. I'm waiting for these reviews, however.

amNewYork is positive, 3 1/2 stars:

"Directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien, this revival gets to the heart of Miller’s writing and brings out increasingly intense and layered performances, making for highly compelling and confrontational theater."

Looks like Jack O'Brien might just receive his first Tony nomination in 12 years.

Thrilled to see the strong reviews for this. It's all correct. This production is shattering. I was truly in tears for most of it .What Bening, Letts, and Walker achieve here is something definitive, in my book. But I also haven't seen any other productions of this. In a just world, they would all be locks for Tony nominations, and honestly, competitive for the win. It's a beautiful, wrenching production.

Happy to see Benning still received a rave in Green’s review.

Glad I saw this before the Times review. He gave away all of the revelations. I went in not knowing the play.
Just give the world Love.

Uh, he wrote two sentences about her, one of which says she's the best of the 4 leads and the other which says she has good technique (which like... an actor should have in spades...). I'd hardly consider that a rave.

Hardly raves for Bening, but should not move the needle re her likely nomination. And I think these reviews secure Benjamin Walker's nomination as well. Not as sure re Letts given the much more competitive Best Actor field.

These reviews make me feel its between Waverly and All My Sons for best revival. Still leaning towards Waverly though.

You're forgetting about Torch Song which also got great reviews and was a NYT Critics Pick!  I really think the voters will remember.

Am I missing something in that the Times review all but renders this play a non-competitor in all the acting fields and perhaps the (not at all stacked) play revival category as well?

Well, the times was the worst of all reviews, and it isn't the single vote on these decisions. Other reviews gave it 4/5 stars. I suspect a Waverly win, but I think this has a chance. I am still so upset I never saw Torch Song, but I hope it does get some love! Maybe a win on tony night will help re-launch the tour they were supposedly doing.

I believe tonight (23rd) is opening night for the London production.

Strange parallel to All My Sons, is a story out of NJ, today, about a business owner accused of selling $1.9 Million worth of "fake" airplane parts to the United States military. 

It always fascinates me when life imitates art and vice versa.
