Hi: This is my brief review of The Inheritance. Love the Play! - Jeff , Bookseller @ East End Books Ptown

This is a brilliant Play! I saw Part I & II in London at the Noel Coward Theatre in November 2018 and on Broadway November 2019.  Remarkable acting from a cast that moves you to tears, laughter, reflection, and back to tears! Read this Play Script as soon as possible!

Matthew Lopez has written a brilliant play that made me feel recognized & valued as a gay man, and part of not only a great LGBTQ family but also a larger community of straight allies and friends.
It also takes a look at those we’ve lost and the way they remain in our hearts. A brilliant theatrical performance! It was difficult to sleep the night I saw Part I & II - it’s so much to think about.

  

I loved the traces of Howard’s End interspersed throughout the Play and E.M. Forster appearing among the cast of Characters, as they’re trying to “speak their truth.” This is one of those Plays you’ll be re-reading.

The Inheritance has so much to say and I was thrilled by the talk, display and pure love of books and literature that you see throughout this Play! The renewed call to fight for what’s great about our Country as we face some of our darkest times - made me freshly enthused and ready to
Fight to defend our rights.

 

And what a powerful look at the many people we lost to AIDS and the beautiful remembrance of the people and trails that were blazed, along with the links between generations of gay men from the past to the present - all tied together to the responsibilities we have to one another - as a community at large. There’s so much to think about and reflect on. This is one of those performances that you want to get on a plane and fly “across the pond” to see!
