    " I read this while I was taking an acting class, and really wanted to play the main character. Sadly I was instead assigned to "Sally Talley" from the play "Talley's Folly." Boo. If you are a female acting student looking for interesting characters in contemporary plays, check this out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dale Rogstad | 2/5/2014

    " I didn't read this book, but saw a production of the story on stage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny U | 1/30/2014

    " I love how multi-dimensional the characters are, and I also love how the characters come alive in the text. Still, it's not the most amazing contemporary play I have read thus far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/28/2014

    " Read this for a theater class. I felt like this was a smooth read, a nice and easy intro to 20th/21st century plays "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/19/2014

    " This was read to me from start to finish during a car ride. I liked that better than the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 1/13/2014

    " David Auborn has such juicy dialogue! I love it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack | 1/11/2014

    " Almosyt as wonderful a read as a stage play. David Auburn has never written so well again - alas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 12/31/2013

    " I loved the movie, and now the play is really remarkable. The simplicity for such a complex topic comes across really well. I highly recommend this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 12/24/2013

    " Though this may be a commonly used text in theatre classes, there's good reason. The characters are extremely well developed, so that it's easy to put yourself in Catherine's confused shoes. It's one of the first plays that I truly fell in love with that it will always hold a place in my heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin (NY) | 12/11/2013

    " A very good play! Quick read, gripping storyline. But as all books about mathematitians, they never say what THE proof was about.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Kleist | 10/8/2013

    " I liked this one quite a lot! It was interesting, good use of imaginary characters and making them believable. Unique. Very very unique. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lani | 9/27/2013

    " Watch the language, but a great play. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libby | 9/21/2013

    " It's a play, not a book. Which means don't expect the characters to be fully fleshed out. That's typically the actors job. Ya know, to "inhabit the character". The skeleton that Auburn crafts here felt fairly universal. I certainly didn't feel left out of the equation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 PurpleBootz13 | 9/12/2013

    " Amazing. The characters and writing are fantastic! I'm completely hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mallk10 | 6/25/2013

    " Easily my favorite play :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 2/6/2013

    " Saw this about 4-5 years before the screen adaptation, which I thought was well done, though obviously not the play. An interesting look at relationships and genius "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Usha | 11/2/2012

    " Liked it, especially complemented by the movie with Gwyneth Paltrow! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KC | 6/27/2012

    " Math! Yay! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherri | 6/4/2012

    " I listened to the LA Theater Works version of this starring Jeremy Sisto and Anne Heche. It was fantastic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanley | 5/18/2012

    " My first introduction into the world of directing. Adore the characters, particularly the father Robert, and the structure of switching back before and after Robert's death. Simple dialogue with humming undertones. Not necessarily a life-changer, but a good, well-written story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shealyn Reilly | 2/26/2012

    " I had to read this in my Modern Theater class. We've read 2 plays this year so far, and I've liked them both. Even though the story had to do with mathematics, which I hate, it was an overall awesome play. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey | 10/9/2011

    " I always wanted to be good at math. I'm not. As a result, I like plays about math. And relationships. And mental illness. Good times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cecily | 10/4/2011

    " Love it! Nerdy and heartwarming! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 9/14/2011

    " It's a question of believing "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 6/27/2011

    " A contemporary play about math. Surprisingly, my 12th classroom loves this play! There is some swearing, some mystery, some surprises. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 5/31/2011

    " I really enjoyed this. A short play that was very amusing yet with a tinge of sadness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rassil92 | 5/31/2011

    " Although this book is kinda dramatic but it's nice to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nickitza | 5/28/2011

    " 2001 Pulitzer: 2001 Tony for Best Play "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 5/18/2011

    " I really enjoyed this play. I can't wait to see the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J L | 5/12/2011

    " I'm not a big play reader (except, for a time, Shakespeare), but I enjoyed this play. Read it about five years ago in a women's studies class, and then watched the movie, after which, of course, I couldn't imagine the protagonist as anyone other than Mary Louise Parker as the lead. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joelle | 4/24/2011

    " Broadway 2000?
    OCU 2003?
    Norman 2004? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 3/13/2011

    " I'm working on a scene from this for acting class, and Catherine is difficult to play, because getting in the head of someone brilliant but repressed is a unique place. I think it's definitely worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shealyn | 11/16/2010

    " I had to read this in my Modern Theater class. We've read 2 plays this year so far, and I've liked them both. Even though the story had to do with mathematics, which I hate, it was an overall awesome play. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vincent | 11/10/2010

    " Fantastic thoughtful drama about a fading mathematician and his loving daughters. "
