It is mixed to positive. I would say mostly positive. Not a Critic's Pick.

DTLI Consensus: They say Home is where the heart is — and this moving production, despite a few directorial missteps, lays out a sturdy “welcome” mat for the new Broadway season. 

6 positive (including the NYT), 5 mixed.

One thing striking reading through the reviews is even when critics like the show, there's often frustration with Kenny Leon's directing. 

Jesse Green in the NYT felt the production was "welcome, if perhaps overly faithful to the original vision." Jackson McHenry in Vulture felt "Leon’s approach is serviceable and too respectful.

I get the impression that's intentional in Leon's work in Home and Purlie Victorious. He wants people to experience a somewhat lost great work as it was originally experienced, as opposed to finding new things to say through the play. 

Personally I've been finding the faithfulness a little boring, even while findings things I liked about both shows.

Well, if Leon is at his weakest directorially when trying to direct a show "as it was originally experienced", we probably shouldn't have to worry about that being an issue with Othello.

Has Roundabout ever had to do that before...?


"...everyone finally shut up, and the audience could enjoy the beginning of the Anatevka Pogram in peace."

It's strange, because tickets the dates I would want to go (right around the July 4 holiday) are all sold out. And yet most other performances have dozens of empty seats.

I rather enjoyed this, the first 20 minutes is way too fast but once it settles in around midway it is a wonderful experience through to the end and features 3 excellent performers.

though they felt the first 20 minutes were overly fast-paced. However, they state that once the pacing settled in around the midpoint, the experience became very enjoyable through the end, and highlighted the excellent performances of three individuals.
