Great acting, Intense, Great staging

See it if An interesting take on a modern classic; some intense situations, and as a whole -- a relevant interpretation.

Don't see it if At times, the accents make this hard to understand, and perhaps as a result -- there are slow moments.

Great acting, Delightful, Clever

See it if seeking a wonderfully entertaining show - funny, poignant to a degree. Good old Gurney was given a worthy staging here.

Don't see it if If Gurney does not make you laugh, if you have no familiarity with WASP attitudes.

88
Original, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if can appreciate a successful mash of drama and slapstick

Don't see it if (I thought it was just great)

75
Intelligent, Confusing

See it if while the 2 girls are lovely, they skip on first establishing good connection with the audience, so the final effect is not as potent.

Don't see it if you are not into "performance art"

95
Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Edgy, Funny

See it if human. This was the most "all there" show I saw this festival, not shying from being overtly sexual, consistently entertaining.

Don't see it if non-vanilla sex is offensive to you.

87
Intelligent, Original, Funny, Absorbing

See it if you would enjoy a storyteller journey through the music of the 90's and 00's, peppered with personal and scientific tidbits.

Don't see it if you just want to know how to make it into a band; this will be, potentially, in a future show...

50
Indulgent

See it if you want to support this "let's put on a show" offering. Some nice hair coloring, though!

Don't see it if you crave more than a series of mostly- mild scenes of no consequence leading to a no-thrill ending.

77
Original, Entertaining

See it if a fan of TSoM and can appreciate a visit to the background characters.

Don't see it if you do not know who Rolf is; This is a decent play / production, but much joy is in knowing "the prequel"...

59
Relevant, Disappointing

See it if you wish to support fringe theater; looking for fast-paced dialog.

Don't see it if frustrated with authors who, for the sake of fast dialog, throw everything in so characters come-off having no believable inner track.

55
Original, Overrated, Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if the basic premise is enough for you.

Don't see it if you prefer (for the main role) more than one-note acting and a logical approach to his Want; even insanity needs to be believable!

Great writing, Great acting, Great staging, Disappointing, Intelligent

See it if ...you appreciate the language and flow of LaBute and want to experience it excellently done.

Don't see it if ...you will be disappointed by work that is clever but tame on making a point.

70
Great writing, Entertaining, Edgy, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you want to get to know or see more from the genius author

Don't see it if impatient when an ambitious production struggles with difficult material

72
Great acting, Relevant, Slow

See it if looking for a well-acted intimate play

Don't see it if the structure of "something weird happens in the 1st half and we learn what it is towards the end" is too slow for you

89
Great acting, Intelligent, Original, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if a new angle on what "rape" means, presented with a light touch, is for you. I especially liked the second half.

Don't see it if you hate nuance.

70
Ambitious, Relevant, Intelligent, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if interested in light discussion about democracy, with audience participation, cutesy interruptions and the occasional use of dolls

Don't see it if you might be critical of a somewhat unfocused event where after a few questions the speaker assumes he made a dent in your perception.

80
Great singing, Quirky, Relevant, Intelligent, Funny

See it if clever, electronic-music-and-estrogen-rich riffs on Medea turning into a passionate protest is for you

Don't see it if you prefer standard cabaret

85
Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if looking for a good drama; good acting by all, but most notably the girl.

Don't see it if you are super demanding; this is fringe -- rewrites will be applied later...

79
Great acting, Cliched, Clever

See it if looking for wonderful acting / direction / textual flow.

Don't see it if looking for real meaning; for me this was less "thought provoking" and more "cliched mumble-jumble".

87
Quirky, Great acting, Delightful, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you might like a lovely, creative current-day riffs on ancient drama; emotional / quirky / accomplished.

Don't see it if you hate subtleties.
