Scarlett’s Broadway play official opened yesterday and the first reviews are coming in. Here is what some of them are saying about her performance:

Johansson, an actor I never thought had much range, more than holds her own, and brings a stirring vulnerability and subtlety in the role of Carbone’s neice. Her performance feels wholly authentic and earned, and during her anguished love scene I could see tears streaking her cheeks. You can fake that on film, but not on stage. – Gothamist

Johansson, making her Broadway debut, is a revelation, giving a shaded, nuanced performance. At first, she’s sweetly fond of her uncle, only later realizing his unspoken attentions. And check out her impeccable Brooklyn accent. – ABC

Looking shapely in tight sweaters and skirts yet still girlishly oblivious to her sensuality, Johansson embodies this dilemma with touching dignity, as much in her moments of cautious distance as those of heated self-assertiveness. – Variety

Johansson disappears so completely into the role of Catherine, the plucky but naïve niece of a longshoreman, that you won’t stop to consider the qualities that make her distinctly suited to the part. Only afterward will you likely realize the actress’s youthful sensuality and capacity for good-natured goofiness constitute a perfect fit for this sheltered 17-year-old struggling to come to terms with her effect on men — her uncle, in particular. – USAToday

Johansson, sporting a convincing Brooklyn accent, is touching as the young girl blossoming into womanhood. Although like most stage tyros she needs to do more work in terms of projection and stage presence, she more than holds her own opposite her dynamic co-star, which is saying something indeed. – Hollywood Reporter

It was evident to me from her performance in “Girl with a Pearl Earring” in 2003, the same year she co-starred with Bill Murray in “Lost in Translation,” that Scarlett Johansson was an actress of major talent, not just star quality. She was 19 then; she had already been acting professionally for a decade. As Catherine, Johansson must be a sheltered girl who receives two shocks in quick succession – the jolt of love and the thunderbolt of betrayal — that force her to figure out how to grow up quickly; it is riveting to watch her do so. – The Faster Times
