Profound, Masterful, Must see, Absorbing

See it if I didn't expect to love this show as much as I did. Amazing acting, staging - so compelling. Stick with it. It is worth it.

Don't see it if I thought it would be over my head politically and I felt that way at the beginning, but it all fell into place for me. Rivetting.

Possibly superficial, Relevant, Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if you enjoy great performances in a gossipy play about actual figures

Don't see it if you want a more profound and -perhaps- a truer tale of the rise of Putin. Read more

Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You like plays based on real life events: if you want to be surprised by a side of history that you might not know

Don't see it if You don't like political plays; long plays (is 2h30 but believe me it will fly by); or serious topics

Educational, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in the history of Putin ( more interesting than it sounds). The acting of the 3 main stars is the best I can remember

Don't see it if you can't sit through 2 & 1/2 hour documentary
