James Earl Jones stars in this comedy about a freethinking family and the mayhem that ensues when their daughter's fiancé brings his straight-laced parents over. More…
The Sycamore family is a happily eccentric gang of snake collectors, cunning revolutionaries, ballet dancers and skyrocket makers. But when the youngest daughter brings her fiancé and his buttoned-up parents over for dinner, that’s when the real fireworks start to fly.
See it if you love revisiting an old chestnut. Still funny moments, but the premise is creeky (we can't all leave reality) and the acting disappoints.
Don't see it if you expect great performances from JEJones and EAshley. I found Ashford too broad. Great set and costumes. Good brisk pace. Flat ending.
See it if although not as good as when I saw it in the 80 s , this was a good production. It was not as raucous as the first time I saw it, nontheless
Don't see it if good. If you really enjoyed the 80's version, you will not like this one as much.
See it if Wonderful ensemble cast, beautiful staging, fascinating family members. All their quirks and flaws. Lots of laughter. Julie Halston

See it if You want to see a big and talented cast being ridiculous and having fun as the most dysfunctional of families.
Don't see it if You want serious theatre. This is just a good time.
See it if great comedy in the hands of a masterful cast leaves you wanting more. Still relevant and touching today as when it was written.
Don't see it if zany comedies that make you rethink life aren't for you.
See it if Delightful ensemble cast, funny and charming, with a classic story. Go for the epitome of classic drawing room romance, stay for the comedy.
Don't see it if You want something much more modern. This wasn't trying to be anything it wasn't. Nice to see a prof. take on this much performed classic.
See it if You want to have a light, fluffy, and funny evening at the theatre. It's a funny family all can connect to.
Don't see it if You don't like plays.
See it if you want to see a great ensemble cast, a charming story, and an exquisite set
Don't see it if you don't want to feel the warm fuzzies
See it if You like humanistic stories of transforming from clutching their pearls into becoming more "real"
Don't see it if You need to be entertained every single second of the show.
See it if you love quick-witted farcical plays. The cast is impressively fantastic.
Don't see it if You prefer more profound and serious dramas. The story is a bit dated but still enjoyable.

Don't see it if You only like drama.
