Great writing

See it if You love this absolutely brilliant play. The production has faults and Maggie Gyllenhaal is miscast - but the play is just beautiful.

Don't see it if You can't get over some quirks in the production to appreciate this wonderful play by Tom Stoppard.

Intelligent, Great acting, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if You want to see as many stars as possible packed into a solid play from a star playwright, and an honest and cynical take on sex and romance

Don't see it if you're romantic to a fault or uncomfortable with so much unflinching focus on relationships and not much else.

Excruciating, Slow, Romantic, Overrated, Edgy

See it if You love Stoppard no matter how iffy the production.

Dated, Great acting, Slow

See it if It's a slow a bit dated story. It's a great demi-stars studded cast. Nice staging and directing. Not juicy material.

Don't see it if You want any real adrenaline.
