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

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.
