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.
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.
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.
See it if You want a play that repeatedly hammers home one point (people suck and are unfaithful) as if you're too stupid to get it the first 10 times
Don't see it if You don't think a good cast excuses absolutely shitty material
See it if there is an outstanding cast performing and you enjoy Stoppard's drama.
Don't see it if you are looking for a easy going, straight forward drama or something light.
See it if you enjoy long monologues, want to see big names on stage, or enjoy plays about romantic relationships.
Don't see it if you enjoy face paced plots, want on-stage chemistry, or dislike thin plots.
See it if I hesitate to really recommend it. There were parts that worked and the cast I was very excited about. Perhaps to see a Stoppard play.
Don't see it if Too disjointed. I was particularly disappointed by Maggie. Saw the actors trying to save it. The relationships felt as difficult as written.
See it if You want to see an classic production and you like these actors
Don't see it if Well, it doesn't really gel as a production and the interesting idea of music interludes slows things down and doesn't help engage us
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.
See it if you enjoy British humor. You have a center stage seat because all the action takes place on the extreme sides of the stage.
Don't see it if you have a side seat. You won't be able to see the play.
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.
See it if you love the work of Tom Stoppard and aren't hoping for brilliant performances by the entire cast. Forever a fan of Ewan McGregor though.
Don't see it if you love Maggie Gyllenhaal and wish to see her in a good role.
