See it if Two excellent lead performances
Don't see it if Intriguing themes set up in the first act could have been explored with seriousness (laced with humor) in the second act. Instead, the play
Also lost its bearings and turned into an over the top farce
See it if A moving performance by Rodney which, however excellent, could not rescue this mediocrity
