Peter Marks of The Washington Post calls OSLO “hands down the best new play of the season.” Inspired by the true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians, OSLO is a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas, a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. OSLO is “thrilling, a colossus,” raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times. At this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, “OSLO gives us hope” (Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News).


  • “Some works of art cry out for large canvases. OSLO is undeniably a big play, as expansive and ambitious as any in recent Broadway history, directed with a master’s hand.”
    - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
  • “An intricately crafted, beautifully staged, movingly acted tribute to the virtues of optimism, compromise, and conversation. In these dark times, finally some hope and inspiration on Broadway.”
    – Jesse Oxfeld, The Forward
  • “Extraordinary. Jefferson Mays and
    Jennifer Ehle are insanely convincing. We have observed history in the making and recall how thrilling hope can be.”
    – Jeremy Gerard, Deadline
  • “A madly engrossing wonder. J.T. Rogers’s OSLO turns the negotiations that led to the Israeli-Palestinian peace accord of 1993 into gripping human drama.”
    – Jesse Green, New York Magazine
  • “Can we make peace with enemies? OSLO GIVES US HOPE.”
    - Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News
  • “SO HUMAN and SO FUNNY. OSLO is GRIPPING, COMPELLING, and COMPULSIVELY WATCHABLE. This is what we call drama, and it’s what we live for. So, go, already—LIVE!”
    - Marilyn Stasio, Variety
  • “A RIVETING POLITICAL THRILLER. OSLO makes a complex historical event feel intimate and profoundly affecting.”
    - Jennifer Farrar, AP
  • ★★★★! As the world hurtles toward greater polarization, OSLO provides a small measure of hope.”
    - Adam Feldman, Time Out NY
