Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Overrated, Slow

See it if When I saw it in 1982 with Dillane in it was much better directed, better staging and flowed more. This play and story depends on directing.

Don't see it if You don't want to pay attention to a story that keeps revisiting itself. Directing made the show painful to watch.

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.

Dated, Disappointing

See it if You're a fan of the actors playing in it.

Don't see it if You're looking for anything more than star gazing or a mediocre night at the theater.

Disappointing, Clever, Miscast, Intelligent, Stiff

See it if you so love Stoppard that you'll take a subpar prodn. Both females were weak. Ewan's always a pleasure. Opening scene's clever! No dragging.

Don't see it if you want the full impact of the play. While it held my attn, it felt unnatural. Singing interludes felt forced. I wanted to love this one. Read more

Ambitious, Cliched, Banal, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You like Ewan Mcgregor. Only reason to see it really. Maggie was ok too but annoying.

Don't see it if You'd rather nap at home.

Excruciating, Slow, Romantic, Overrated, Edgy

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

Don't see it if You're hoping for something as good as The Coast of Utopia.

Funny, Great acting, Cliched, Confusing, Dated

See it if Funny, and of course the cast was great. Terrific writing, and interesting story.

Don't see it if Why were the actors singing between the scenes? It was very distracting.
