See it if you enjoy T. Williams; you want to see a movie star; you want to see creative sets
Don't see it if you expect this production to be true to the script's underlying meaning; direction completely ignores the homosexual theme
See it if you love British staging; you love John Tiffany's nuanced direction (Once); you like new imaginings of the classics
Don't see it if you don't like choreography in plays; you don't like extra music to heighten certain moods
See it if You like watching actors chew the scenery for many hours. Not really a bad thing, but everyone is at a level 10, other than the nice suitor.
Don't see it if You're not in the mood for something intense and depressing, or you want something more natural and less dated.
See it if you are a Tennessee Williams fan, want to be mesmerized by actors, and are enchanted by a rather stark set with a few tricks up its sleeves.
Don't see it if you don't like Williams' intense family drama, prefer musicals, or want neat and tidy finales. If you want a happy conclusion, go elsewhere.
See it if You're looking for strong acting, interesting production choices, & a wallop of emotion. Absolutely stunning production.
Don't see it if You don't enjoy classic American theatre & family dramas.
See it if You want to see one of the classics staged in a beautiful production. The acting is superb and the story still fresh and moving.
Don't see it if Honestly, no good reason.
See it if you're a die hard Tennessee Williams fan & insist on seeing every major staging of his works.
Don't see it if you're at all indifferent to the play, b/c I found it incredibly disappointing & void of any meaning. I don't get what the big deal is.
See it if It's a terrific, moving play. The man who played the Gentleman Caller stole the show.
Don't see it if I found the performances disappointing. Jones' portrayal of Amanda suffered in comparison to Judith Ivey's. Quinto was just wrong.
See it if you are into very realistic "a day in the life" type of shows. This show feels like you are looking into their living room from outside.
Don't see it if you don't like Tennessee Williams or you are looking for a more eventful plot line. This show has some slow moving parts.
