Great writing, Riveting, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a brilliant new play by Amy Herzog and starring an elegant and nuanced Rachel McAdams in her Broadway debut. Wow. So moving.

Don't see it if Heavy subject matter is a no-go. Small cast “slice-of-life” play. It is excellent, but very heavy.

Great writing, Exquisite, Absorbing, Profound, Great staging

See it if You appreciate a play that is about nuance, relationships, moments, and truth. Beautiful writing! Exquisite directing!

Don't see it if You don't have really good ears. It's very hard to hear Rachel McAdams. Too bad they didn't cast a theater actor in the role.
