Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Riveting

See it if You have never seen this classic play. This production starred Lauren Ambrose, Mark Ruffalo, Pable Shreiber, Ben Gazzara and Zoe Wanamaker.

Don't see it if I went to the opening night of this show. Very memorable. This one has stuck in my mind all these years (I saw it in April, 2006).

Absorbing, Dated, Epic, Slow, Great acting

See it if You like classic, family dramas set in the World War II era.

Don't see it if You can't stand slowly paced, kitchen sink dramas.

Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great staging, Must see

See it if you like a great story, incredibly well acted by, among others, a young Mark Ruffalo. Maybe the best straight play I ever saw on Broadway.

Don't see it if you don't like family dramas.

Fluffy, Overrated, Quirky

See it if Not sure

Don't see it if If you value your time
