Good plot, sometimes uneven, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if Good story with good twists. Really well acted and staged. Entertaining.

Don't see it if some of the plot on the 2nd act feels either like ex-machina or magical realism. Jerky. Needs streamlining & no intermission.

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if Overall entertaining and pretty funny with great performances especially from Henderson.

Don't see it if Some parts are a bit slow. Feel like the show would be stronger if it were a little shorter and one act.

Perfect nyc tale of racism, real estate & revenge, Set in contemporary nyc riverside dr apt, One best written plays in past decade, Monumental perf by stephen henderson in great role

See it if Shakespearean; shows complexity marginalized people, noble & flawed; Henderson is hilarious/commanding as Pops = of Lear or Falstaff

Don't see it if starts slowly till plot takes off; once it does fascinates w tale how beleaguered Pops magically rises from dead 2 find justice & redmptn

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you like to see a very powerful and well acted drama about family and race. The characters are well developed and I felt many emotions.

Don't see it if you don't like discussions of race or racy scenes or angry family discussions. Read more

Whipping humor

See it if Stephen Henderson's spectacular! About dignity of an older man with a rougher life and how to spend his last moments in life. Dark humor.

Don't see it if Less PC jokes/comments, Black ex/police, dramatic plot aren't your thing. 2.5 hours; 1 intermission. Read more

Disappointing, Entertaining, Intereting, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you can enjoy great performances despite a script that leaves plot gaps and has an unsatisfying and confusing conclusion.

Don't see it if you want a play that explains things and ties everything up for the audience. I was left with too many questions.

Raunchy, Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if If you wish to see a shadow of what was once beautifully produced.

Don't see it if If you don’t like a very poorly produced prize winning play. Needs additional rehearsal time and some replacement of cast members.
