Slow, Cliched, Relevant, Intense, Delightful

See it if You are a feminist and you want an insight on the kinds of things that are hot button topics in womens lives today.

Don't see it if You want a fast-paced and plot-heavy drama. This moves slowly and is very much about the characters' backstories

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You want a phenomenally acted drama that is also very funny and moving. It's about family, love, and how we as a society treat special needs

Don't see it if I can't think of any reason why not to see it.

Indulgent, Great acting, Exquisite, Dizzying, Absorbing

See it if You are fascinated by the parallels between these 2 classic plays and want to experience some top notch classical acting.

Don't see it if You are unfamiliar with these 2 plays or don't have a lot of patience to make the links.

Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Great singing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You want to know what a woman's life in the theater and music industry is really like. Also, see it with your mother or daughter.

Don't see it if You don't like one-woman shows. The actress is very good, but it's hard for any 1 person to sustain an audience's interest for 90 minutes.

Clever, Dated, Edgy, Resonant, Quirky

See it if You love ghost stories and local history, and want to experience an immersive evening with a small audience.

Resonant, Profound, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to see an extremely powerful and incredibly moving performance from Johanna Day - so simple and unaffected. She is a master.

Don't see it if You want a Broadway style show with high production values. This is simple and pared down.

Profound, Riveting, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want a look at toxic masculinity through the lens of 1970s America.

Don't see it if You are easily offended by bad language and shocking situations. Also, the plot is non-linear, so it can feel a little trippy at times.

Don't see it if You don't love her music
