Haterobics was just asking about this last night (there were also two other shows in the mix, but it seemed to come down to Betrayal vs. Sound Inside)

As you can see, most people said Sound Inside. I personally preferred Betrayal just a bit more, but you can't go wrong with either.

Both were sensational, but I would go with The Sound Inside.

I haven’t seen The Sound Inside yet but I did see Betrayal a few nights ago and only found it ok.

I haven't seen Sound Inside yet but I thought Betrayal was one of the best Pinter productions ever (and one of his more accessible stories). Of course I love Pinter and Tom Hiddleston. That helps.

IMO The Sound Inside is an incredible work that pulls you in And never lets go. It it profound and enjoyable. Betrayal is a good production of an okay play. So early in the season, but Aound Inside and it’s two cast members will be serious candidates for Tony Awards. I don’t see that happening for Betrayal...maybe Best Revival nominee if it is not a strong season for revivals.
