Great acting, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Historical, but not dated

See it if you enjoy great writing & ensemble acting. Pinkham's performance was a standout. Themes are just as relevant today as when play was written.

Don't see it if you need a lot of action. This is a wordy, dialogue driven show, although well written with an important message. Read more

Entertaining, Funny, Absorbing, Interesting, Great writing

See it if you are a woman and like comedies that you can relate to.

Don't see it if musical theater is your passion and a clever comedy about a feminist's life goals isn't of any real interest to you.
