Dated, Funny, Indulgent, Unconvincing

See it if you've never seen HC.. Its good intentions & jokes make it worthwhile. But it's also dated and frustrating. Women still face same issues.

Don't see it if you are bothered by the end solution (a baby!) to a single woman's problems. Weird combo of too much and too little.

65
Banal, Cliched, Dated, Disappointing

See it if if you don't have anything better to do.

Don't see it if you want to see something that is relevant to this day and age and plots that make you care about the theme of the show.

65
Dated, Disappointing, Mediocre

See it if You're a fan of Elizabeth Moss, are a feminist and enjoy stories of women trying to navigate through life.

Don't see it if If you are looking to see something that breaks the mold & offers anything more than your average chick flick. It's not bad, but not great

Excruciating, Slow, Romantic, Overrated, Dated

See it if You're a big Wasserstein fan.

Don't see it if You're hoping for a much more significant, life-changing work.

Dated, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if You are curious to see this play

Don't see it if You don't like being bored and seeing totally dated, annoying characters. The play itself just doesn't hold up.

65
Dated, Disappointing, Indulgent, Relevant, Insipid

See it if you like the actors (who gave good performances) or relate to an 80's idea of a liberated woman. Some around me were in tears, so clearly do

Don't see it if you would find a supposed heroine who struggles to speak up for herself and mopes over an asshole for years a bore.

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

Absorbing, Intelligent, Great writing, Clever, Ambitious

See it if you want a great acting and you are a feminist

Don't see it if you want a musical
