See it if You want to see a story with great characters and a very real and believable multi-generational family dynamic perfectly executed.

Don't see it if You don’t want to engage with some of the players’ stubbornness, selfishness and hustling of each other.

See it if You want to experience a very believable and fantastic mystery and its solution in one amazing 80-minute monologue that’s a tour de force.

Don't see it if LGBT and sometimes violent content makes you squeamish.

See it if You want to see a whole new spin on a classic play by adding race into the class consciousness of the Loman family with its black cast.

Don't see it if You think that altering the ethnicity of the players is merely a gimmick.

See it if You are intrigued by the loose connection to Hamlet, want to laugh and be moved, you like the idea of family represented in the present day.

Don't see it if Hearing an explicit stoner confession of getting blown by a gingerbread man will have your clutching your pearls or you are too woke.

Also The writing was brilliant as were all the performances. Marcel spears ... Read more Read less

June 12th, 2022

See it if You love the story and want to see a take on it that is closer to the real Fanny Brice and what we’ve been used to for the past 60 years.

Don't see it if You can’t get past your memories of Barbra or that Beanie isn’t she. No one sings like Streisand and neither did Fanny Brice. I loved her!

Also Beanie Feldstein, Ramin Karimloo, Jane Lynch in their respective roles... Read more Read less

See it if You love great staging, edgy performances, great costumes, an incredible score, and seeing and hearing dark subject matter into killer jazz

Don't see it if You’re a racist, bible-thumping Philistine with a tin ear and no sense of humor.

See it if You like a perfect mix of character study and comedy to set up and offset the drama as it builds in a perfectly executed production.

Don't see it if You don’t like serious and still controversial subject matter reflecting how these same issues have not gone away.

See it if You like the idea of a millennial “Boys in the Band.” Very gay and very funny before getting emotional. Great acting and writing.

Don't see it if You have no sense of humor or gay as “normal” offends or intimidates you.

September 22nd, 2018

See it if It was a non-stop disaster (as it was written) and they pulled out all the stops with the individual performances, the slapstick physicality

Don't see it if You don't want to laugh out loud constantly or are looking for a "higher" theater experience than is being promised and presented

See it if If you love the classic, you will adore this production. Everything about it is exquisite, but the authenticity of the translation makes it

Don't see it if If you have no interest in the history depicted, don't like musicals—or reading supertitles.

June 16th, 2018

See it if It is a streamlined version of the original, the humor holds up and the all-star cast was exquisite.

Don't see it if You're homophobic or don't like very fast-moving, clever and acerbic dialog.

May 26th, 2018

See it if The portrayals of O'Neill's words were spot-on.

Don't see it if It's 3 1/2 hours and is borderline morose.

See it if If you want to try something with no direction (as to how to experience it) and don't mind taking a chance on what could be a total waste.

Don't see it if You have better things (I'm sure you do) to do with your $90.

See it if The characters were appealing as were the actors in the roles, I liked the lover's triangle how the relationships were believably depicted.

Don't see it if You'll be offended by male nudity and simulated gay sex.

See it if Anything with Mark Rylance is worth seeing. It's a quirky subject, but the production surpassed even my high expectations.

Don't see it if You don't like seeing plays about someone who may or may not be insane.

See it if You have the opportunity even if it had been scheduled to close AFTER it's Tony win. But since it's been extended, don't miss it.

Don't see it if you're antisemitic, don't care about history or can't deal with the risqué and controversial subject matter.

See it if This is a can't miss show. How could one go wrong especially with this exquisite production.
