Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if if you like 1 woman shows about experiences totally relevant to women only. Script and performance very good.

Don't see it if I don't know if it's just me but I think 1 person shows should run no longer than 1 hour. After that, no matter how good, my interest wanes

See it if you appreciate Arthur Miller and want to see one of his better works performed by great actors

Don't see it if you can't take pipe smoke or, perhaps, chemicals that smell like pipe smoke. A great many in the audience were constantly coughing

Also or clearing their throats. At intermission everyone around me was talk... Read more Read less
