Loved ittt.  It’s so fabulous, I love the play, love the documentary, it takes you inside Jeremy O Harris’ mind.  Now streaming on max, I’d recommend it.

I actually can't think of a more horrible place to be!  Except maybe having to sit through SLAVE PLAY again.

Slave Play is one of those things that gaslit people into thinking it was profound, edgy, and progressive. It didn’t take long for the veil to dissipate to reveal how cringe it actually is.

It is edgy and progressive, whether you like it or not.  I don’t need it to be profound, I just want to be thrilled

I think stereophonic is far more overhyped than slave play was

Was the subject matter of the show radical considering it’s something that’s never been seen on Broadway before? Yes. Were some parts a bit more shock value than actually contributing to interracial relationship discourse? Absolutely.

A huge factor that turned people off were Jeremy O. Harris’ very public displays of self-aggrandizement. It didn’t seem like he wanted people to take away what they wanted and instead seemed content to force feed an agenda. I enjoy the play, but I also recognize that the playwright never let his work speak for itself and couldn’t get out of his own way

Slave Play is a masterpiece.  I’m happy Jeremy brings attention to himself, and theatre by extension.  And frankly, plays and playwrights are sidelined on Broadway, so I’m thrilled he gets headlines.  More playwrights should be like him, I can’t wait to see what he does next

The title and the first act are quite strong. Second act was silly and the third was just maudlin melodrama with no payoff.

The big payoff at the end was in the simplicity of it. I thought it was stunning.  The second act wasn’t as thrilling but it’s where the real meat of the play is. The first act was campy and crazy and amazing!!  I hope they do a pro shot in London.

I might like Slave Play more if Jeremy O. Harris didn't labor under the delusion that he's God's gift to the entire theatrical realm, and we all have a responsibility to bow down to his profound wisdom that far supersedes that of us commoners.

If not for that, I'd probably like it more.

It’s all for the cameras. I don’t think he’s actually like that in person.  And it wouldn’t cloud my view of the work either way

There are many great things about Stereophonic, but the best is that because of it, Harris and this joke of a play no longer get to have the "most Tony nominated play in history" title.

He’ll make sure to put music in his next play to regain the title

Just thinking about how he publicly burned a bridge with Playwrights Horizons a few years ago.

Oh, it is most certainly his natural state. You can cheer the work, but yeah, that’s Jeremy.

What happened with Playwrights Horizons?

Also has anyone else besides Flash seen this documentary?  I'm a bit puzzled about its purpose but I'm intrigued enough to consider watching (as I did think Slave Play had merit even if it was imperfect), but I'm not sure if it's just a Jeremy O. Harris vanity project.

It’s part of a deal he made with HBO. However, HBO wanted to make Slave Play a movie, which Harris refused to do, so he decided to make a documentary about the making of the play. But also he slacked on it for quite some time and HBO was getting testy because he got paid a nice advance and still hadn’t produced anything

The documentary is so bad.  I tried, really, really tried to watch it, but about 15 minutes in I decided it was a waste of my time and just so cringeworthy.

I got through about 25 minutes of it and deleted the recording.

Surprised to hear he's pulling the same stunts he did with theatres in town. Well, I guess not so surprised.

You are so delusional! 


The idea is to work and to experiment. Some things will be creatively successful, some things will succeed at the box office, and some things will only - which is the biggest only - teach you things that see the future. And they're probably as valuable as any of your successes. -Harold Prince
