See it if Glenda Jackson and Ruth Wilson stood out as being excellent in their roles. I am not a major Shakespeare fan, but I enjoyed this.

Don't see it if You hate Shakespeare.

Great staging, Great singing, Masterful, Great acting, Exquisite

See it if You want to witness an amazing production of a classic!!! I was mesmerized by the performances and the stages and want to see it again!!!

Don't see it if You would mind a darker version of this show. It was nuanced and deep and very moving. It is not light and fluffy.

Great staging, Indulgent, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you just love Arthur Miller. I loved Death of a Salesman, but not this one nor did I like A View from the Bridge. This was so drawn out.

Don't see it if you want action and a script that moves forward in a normal manner. It seemed to repeat thoughts and ideas ad nauseam. Annette was blah.

See it if I saw it on Broadway years ago and saw the film. Both were mesmerizing. This production is flat and boring. Joshua Jackson is monotone.

Don't see it if Rent or stream the film. This production is dreadful and embarrassing.

See it if You want to hear wonderful vocals and see great dancing! The tango duo are outstanding! Loved the story, songs, overall ambiance.

Don't see it if Some of the plot was hard to follow and there wasn't much resolution. Don't sit in first row of balcony as pole is in the way.

See it if You want to see exquisite staging. Loved the set and production values.

See it if You like shows about the creative process. The acting was excellent. It was indulgent and overdone. Dusty set in a rich home made no sense.

Don't see it if You mind herbal cigarettes. She smoked four times and it never left the air. Made me ill. Male character seemed naive in an unreal way.

See it if You like drama in general even though this play seems somewhat generalized and one level.

Don't see it if You are expecting a play as good as his other one (Daniel's Husband) which I loved. Some things just didn't add up.

See it if You love the songs, Jessie Mueller and the old fashioned charm, but it is uneven and somewhat plodding in nature. Some great performances.

See it if You just love music enough to sit through any entertainment at all. It is very uneven - sometimes I was a little moved by the performances.

Don't see it if Mostly didn't know who the performers were and wondered why I was watching unknowns singing opera and rock mashups. Didn't jive..

See it if You want to hear conversations between female middle school soccer players. Concept was entertaining initially, but wore out its welcome.

Don't see it if You mind plays that seem a bit forced and lose their momentum. The ending seemed contrived and not well explained.

Also The acting is very good. Wish it was a bit more fleshed out. Some idea... Read more Read less
