Don't see it if you want a linear plot or if you don't like metaphors.
See it if you want to experience the book's content in a terrible but also bombastic way. The book is shocking in its own way, but this was gruesome.
Don't see it if you don't like intense dramas that have no problem displaying gore for its own sake.
See it if you want to see a well-acted Shakespeare play given an updated treatment set in Miami with actors who speak some Spanish.

See it if you want to see John Lithgow showcase how he knows how to act; he acts out stories that were read to him as a child.

See it if you like "The Golden Girls" and shows like "Avenue Q" or "Hand to God", and puppets!

Don't see it if you don't want to run to the Drama Book Shop immediately afterwards to search for the plot of the play.

Don't see it if you don't know how to sit through a long play that examines LGBTQ issues, religion, morality, and the AIDS crisis. This is not light fare.
