Resonant, Masterful, Must see, Timeless, Important

See it if you have a pulse. This is essential theater. Powerful, deeply inspiring, absolutely devastating & always, always relevant.

Don't see it if you're looking to sit back & take in a light, fluffy show. This is show that deals with AIDS & death. It's brutal but necessary.

See it if NOT the Broadway version, but a powerful play even in the hands of students. I knew the whole cast & spent most of it crying my eyes out.

Don't see it if Well if U are homophobic then a show about gay men fighting the govt. over HIV meds could be uncomfortable. Live with the discomfort, SEE IT

Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant, Intense, Profound

See it if you love non-musical plays, plays dealing with AIDS in America in the 1980s, great acting, and a script the burns with fiery passion.

Don't see it if you only like musicals, dislike polemic works, aren't interested in work dealing with AIDS, are averse to shows dealing w/the gay experience Read more
