Quirky, Great acting, Confusing

See it if you love Tracy Letts's work or are a fan of any of the cast members. It's a well-acted piece, but I didn't really understand the point, even

Don't see it if after the surprise climax. Mind you, I saw this in previews back before the pandemic, so things may have changed by the time it reopens

Resonant, Intense, Edgy, Clever

See it if The acting and character development were great. Very resonant with our times. The twist was shocking! Truly nothing was as it seems.

Don't see it if You can’t follow fast paced dialogue and want light fluff!!

Relevant, Edgy, Great writing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You like to be challenged a bit and can go where a story takes you-even if that creeps into the absurd.

Don't see it if You don't like dramatic plays and/or only like plays that go to places you expect them to go.

Refreshing, Great staging, Great acting, Entertaining, Confusing

See it if you enjoy watching great acting and love a mystery with a twist. The story is very relevant to today’s racial/political climate.

Don't see it if you don’t want to be confused leaving the theater. The ending was quite odd…and uneventful. Could use some tweaking to the end.

Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if You're a fan of at least of one of the great actors.

Don't see it if The story is banal and slow with a twist of the ridiculous/bizarre. Most of the talent is severely underused. Read more

Well-acted, Thought-provoking, Boring, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You find business meetings enjoyable or like political plays. I enjoyed the last 15 minutes or so & could appreciate the message.

Don't see it if I found the first hour to be very slow, dry & boring. It felt like I was sitting on just an average business meeting. Read more
