Great staging, Great acting, Powerful

See it if You're interested in seeing a "forgotten" chapter of history brought to life in a moving, sparely-staged and powerfully acted revival.

Don't see it if You don't like intimate theater spaces, or have no patience for long (almost 3 hours) plays.

Also "Shadow of Heroes" examines the political and social upheaval in Hunga... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if You want a conscience-stirring theatrical experience. Beautiful staging. Exquisitely acted.

Don't see it if You don't have patience for shows that dramaturgically are clearly a product of a specific time - however timeless the themes.

Also Praise to Metropolitan for reviving this challenging work.

Entertaining, Great acting, Delightful

See it if You enjoy lovingly-resurrected classics from another era. You appreciate thoughtful staging, witty dialogue, and acting with nuance & heart.

Entertaining, Great staging, Witty

See it if You'd appreciate surprisingly timeless social commentary, witty wordplay, and unabashedly goofy slapstick enacted by a lively cast.

Don't see it if You don't have the patience for a 2.5hr+ running time. You don't like small venues. You find 1890s vernacular confusing.

Great writing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Enchanting

See it if You're a fan of Tina Howe and her often surreal yet deeply felt probings into the human experience.

Don't see it if You don't like magic realism. You find jumping back and forth between worlds via short scenes confusing or jarring.

Also This production seems to be have been polarizing, but I really enjoyed... Read more Read less
