Great staging, Absorbing, Clever, Problematic plot, Well acted

See it if you are fascinated by brilliant staging and don't mind a weak underlying plot. The horse is more impt than all the men dying? Really?

Don't see it if you only respond to insightful scripts. The staging was dazzling, creative, memorable. I took my son and loved how much he loved it!

Original, Great staging, Great writing, Relevant

See it if amazing and super creative production. Great story. A million times better than the movie version.

Don't see it if you can't abstract the puppet horse.
