Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You like dysfunctional families, and are interested in the lives of performers.

Don't see it if You want something on an epic scale - this is just an intimate story about a family.

Great acting, Great writing, Great directing, Great staging, Clever

See it if like Blythe Danner's original, actors, theater references, & family drama about jealousy, death, parental love, envy, fame, & acceptance

Don't see it if you're snobbish about performance spaces. It's done in a basement WAY Off-Off B'way-but magically transformed by the set & lighting designer

Great writing, Relevant, Resonant, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You like seeing a great ensemble do great writing

Don't see it if You don't like small venues in basements
