Terry Teachout reviews it in the Wall Street Journal.  An excerpt from 
his review is on Teachout's blog, About Last Night.  Briefly, he says-- 
messy beginning, magnificent from the storm scene onwards.

I read in today's NY Times that tickets are impossible to get--unless 
you are willing to buy from a scalper or "the black market," however 
that works with a Shakespeare play!

Unfortunately, it has been sold out for months.

It must have improved considerably since it opened in Stratford a few 
months ago.  Unfortunately, Ben Brantley's NY Times review today 
suggests that the run is sold out.
