NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Is it heresay to whisper that the sainted Thomas More is a bit of a bore? Even Frank Langella, an actor who can be counted on to put the pepper in mashed-potato parts, doesn't find much variety in the monolithic goodness of the title character of "A Man For All Seasons"."

AM NEW YORK REVIEW:

"Decapitation: it's the fad of the fall of Broadway! Just as Sydney Carton mounts the guillotine in "A Tale of Two Cities," Sir Thomas More is similarly led up the stairs to meet the axeman. But as it turns out, losing your head is not the equivalent of good theater."

NEWSDAY REVIEW:

"With Broadway's first revival of "A Man for All Seasons" since its 1961 premiere, the Roundabout Theatre Company has tossed the hungry acting giant a big chunk of juicy sustenance. And Langella's gratitude becomes our own."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Now, in the play's first Broadway revival, Frank Langella has assumed the mantle of Sir Thomas More, and it's a natural fit. With a strong, even mesmerizing physical presence, Langella slips easily into costume drama. And his fluid, mellifluous voice is perfect for the series of moral arguments he puts forth to justify his obedience to God, a duty that goes beyond his allegiance to King Henry VIII. The play itself doesn't wear as well in this stately, slow-paced revival, that the Roundabout Theatre Company opened Tuesday at its American Airlines Theatre."

VARIETY REVIEW:

"The word "maverick" has been so thoroughly co-opted as a catchall credential by the Republican presidential campaign that it may be forever tied to that context. But for a true illustration of a staunchly independent dissenter worthy of that label, history is a better place to look -- for instance, to Robert Bolt's depiction of Thomas More in "A Man for All Seasons." The 1961 drama about the martyrdom of the chancellor of England under Henry VIII is not without windy preachiness. But the Roundabout staging becomes more gripping as it proceeds, driven by a performance from Frank Langella as measured and naturalistic as it is majestic."

USA TODAY REVIEW:

"The flexibility and limits of executive power in our government have been the focus of intense debate in recent years, so it seems as good a time as any for the Roundabout Theatre Company to revive A Man for All Seasons (*** out of four). It opened Tuesday at the American Airlines Theatre."

TALKIN' BROADWAY REVIEW:

"Can a radiant star compensate for a swelling black hole? If the star in question is Frank Langella, the answer is almost, even when he's up against the destructive gravitational pull present - or, perhaps more accurately, absent - in the Roundabout's new revival of Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons at the American Airlines."

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"With three Tony Awards on his shelf and a scrapbook of rave reviews, there's little question that Frank Langella is one of this country's finest actors. But Langella takes his artistry to new heights -- and could easily earn his fourth Tony - -with his consummate portrayal of Sir Thomas More in Doug Hughes' sturdy revival of Robert Bolt's Tony-winning 1961 play A Man for All Seasons, now at the Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre."
