Absorbing, Profound, Relevant, Great staging, Great acting

See it if Uniform masterclass in acting … beautiful set (a real set! No projections).

Don't see it if Looking for Tyne Daly; as much as she missed, Amy Ryan knocks it out of the park. See it and support non-musical theatre.

Must see, Profound, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You want to think about how rumors can change someone’s life. You want to think about profound issues like priests abusing boys, racism

Don't see it if You do not want to think about issues in the Catholic Church or looking for a funny play. This is heavy drama

Surprisingly humorous, Great acting, Great writing, Incredible subtext

See it if you love shows where meaning is derived from subtext, not the words that are actually spoken.

Don't see it if you don’t like philosophical conversations where much is talked about but little of it actually happens on stage.
