Indulgent, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if Like to see accomplished actors even if in inferior work. Has a few good moments but generally boring.

Don't see it if Dislike a inconsistent work that never seems to know whether intends to be intelligent or just absurd. At times just weird. Never moving.

Ambitious, Indulgent, A mixed experience, Abstract set looked like a giant pipe organ

See it if ... you are a Shaw fan. Slow first act. Second act much better. Epilogue best

Don't see it if ... you are bored by historical drama

Funny, Intelligent, Intense, Profound, Great writing

See it if you want an interesting perspective on Joan of Arc. Was she a war hero, saint or a crazy kid hearing voices? You decide.

Don't see it if you can't sit through a show for almost three hours or you must have a musical.

Great acting, Disappointing, Slow, Educational

See it if GBS is a favorite writer. Condola Rashād is strong lead but seems miscast in title role. Jokes seem forced and somewhat out of place.

Don't see it if Long, slow dramas are not your favorite way to pass a couple of hours.

Intelligent, Great writing, Slow

See it if you love classic plays and masterful writing, and don't shrink at the thought of having to concentrate.. it's a great rendition of a classic

Don't see it if if you hate Shakespeare or G.B. Shaw or any kind of playwright who expected utter attention from audience. This is masterful but slow...

Also Much of the audience was there to support Rashad, so you're probably w... Read more Read less

Slow, Miscast, Stagnant boring direction

See it if If you are a Shaw fan, and want to see anything he's written. It put me to sleep! I don't recommend. The fault is the director's. Needs edit

Don't see it if Extremely long & laborious with mixed acting styles & stagnant & uneven direction. Even though I'm a fan Rashad is miscast. Pass on this.

Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Uninspired staging of an interestingly written play.

See it if you love Shaw, which I do. The words are interesting! But the production not so much.

Don't see it if you want to see an exciting, bold version of Shaw's JOAN. In this production there is a lot of sitting around.

Also Not sure if Ms. Rashad is up to it or just poorly directed but, to me,... Read more Read less

Great acting, Disappointing, Slow

See it if Condola Rashad is fierce and the production is worth seeing for her, but it's too long and the script is repetitive.

Don't see it if you need your villains and heroes clearly delineated, and you don't enjoy long monologues and little action.

Also The last scene is the sharpest and most interesting.

During previews
Cartoonish, poor acting, poor staging, poor direction, miscast lead

See it if you need to catch up on your sleep, or if you really are a fan of Condola Rashad. The production does no justice to this Shavian piece.

Don't see it if you want a short engrossing evening in the theater, or if you suffer from stiffness when you have to sit for 3 hours in semi-boredom.

Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Great writing, Great staging

See it if You want to see superb actors in a great play that feels as relevant today as it was 100 years ago.

Don't see it if You’re not interested in political themes or want a light and fluffy evening.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Insipid

See it if Want a simple night of theatre that won't change your thoughts on much. Decent acting by most of the cast.

Don't see it if Expect any wow factors. Don't enjoy overacted leads. Will probably wonder why this choice for set design.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see this interpretation of the classic Shaw play. Condola Rashad is masterful in this role - she will probably win the Tony!

Don't see it if You are looking for a 'Broadway show'. This is not for the casual theater-goer looking for a fun night out.

Also This is NOT a new play! This is George Bernard Shaw. If you don't know... Read more Read less

Great writing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if Shaw's great work should be as cheaply mounted as R&H's "Cinderella" at a High School. Call in The Maid of Orleans to clean up this mess.

Don't see it if Joan's visions include Children's Theater costumes and a set ordered at Blinds To Go. Detrimental empathy sets in early at this table read.

Disappointing, Dull, Interminable, Uneven tone, Some actors appear to be in different plays from each other

See it if You’d be okay just appreciating the fantastic organ pipe set. Play had little drama, pace was glacial, scenes stretched, strange direction.

Don't see it if You love Shaw, ok w bizarre acting & directorial choices, can’t sit for 3 hrs, fall asleep easily. The artwork suggests a different play.

Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You want to see a young woman in a breakout role. Rashad brings grace and humility to this classic piece.

Don't see it if You don't like long, talky theater. There's not much action, just conversation and contemplation. Or if historical pieces bore you.

Great acting, Inspiring early feminist, Combined with philosophical musings, Classic shaw

See it if Condola Rashad is excellent, bringing out the character's fiery passion, bold determination, assertiveness, strength, vision, and humor.

Don't see it if You don't have the patience to listen to characters mouth Shaw's religious, political, and philosophical discussions in long speeches.

Ambitious, Clever, Great acting, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you like a "slightly modernized" GB Shaw play about a classic character. It is more accessible in this interpretation. Great performances

Don't see it if you are a purist who insists on plays being presented as written. The epilogue was a bit over the edge

Overrated, Slow

See it if you're a fan of any of the actors, and don't mind a long, ill-conceived play. I really disliked the show.

Don't see it if you want to avoid overly long, talky, boring work with a lead who is difficult to understand what she is saying.

Great acting, Intelligent, Profound, Great writing, Great staging

See it if Terrific production and outstanding ensemble in play about Joan of Arc but also hypocrisy of church, politicians and the dangerous mob

Don't see it if It’s long Shavian classic with long monologues but beautifully written and intelligent thought-provoking dialogue.

Great acting, Intense, Excruciating, Slow, Dated

See it if you are interested in a life story of Saint Joan. The play is 3 hours long and is very slow at times.

Don't see it if you expect whole a lot of story development. The script focused a lot on philosophy and ideals at the time, which can be dry..

Also The acting was overall excellent given the material. Act 2 is definite... Read more Read less
