I suspect the play will never out-shine the movie. Nothing can beat the close camera angles and intense drama and cinematography a film can provide. In almost any size house, it's hard to capture the intensity that only the people in the first two rows can absorb. If anyone could try, Roundabout would surely by the natural choice where elaborate and ornate costumes and sets as well as excellent direction are a mainstay.
All in all - the actors did a superb job. Many will say Act I was too "funny". Some will complain the ending was different from the movie. You can't please everyone. You just have to keep playing the game.
