Ambitious, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you like great acting and elaborate staging and you are a fan of Shaw.

Don't see it if you can't make it through a long show that could have been cut by an hour at no cost to the story.

Upper E Side
Ambitious, Great acting, Huge

See it if you want a good production of a tough script, enormous set design including a 136' diameter turntable. Great acting and direction dwarfed.

Don't see it if you need easily accessible storyline. This play is expressionistic and that is not for everyone. The set should have been more 1920's

Don't see it if want to to be entertained. TFANA pulled out all the stops to make this. Everyone involved is very talented, but doesn't work.

Clever, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you want an excellent presentation of cultural bias within a cultural most Americans wrongly think of as homogenous.

Don't see it if you insist on seeing riveting theatre. An unbelievable number of scene changes, the story develops very slowly and the ending is very murky.

See it if You are interested the race relations debate, especially in the current political climate. Excellent, subtle use of projections too.

Don't see it if Like a finished scenic look and completely developed script. Stage right looked great. Stage left was a work that needs a lot of progress.

Disappointing, Indulgent, Insipid

See it if You want to see a bad presentation of what I suspect is an excellent script. The direction, design & much of the acting are just wrong.

Don't see it if You want to suspend disbelief, or see decent acting, direction & design. 1 actor was good & he stood out because everything else was so bad.

Disappointing, Great writing, Quirky, Slow, Great acting

See it if you really, really want to hear the script, but keep your eyes closed.

Don't see it if you like fully realized, unified theatre with a chance of suspension of disbelief. THERE IS NO SET. It looks like an acting class exercise!
