Don't see it if You need all the questions answered.
See it if You are a regular theatre goer & dig today's new directions in current dramaturgical practice. Understated realism / Quirky magic realism
Don't see it if subtly gets by you or you're looking for traditional arch. I left thinking, Not sure what that added up to but appr the writing and realism.
See it if you like a home-spun tail with all the country trimmings: Romantic, sentimental, Melodrama; with a twang; without being overblown in style.
Don't see it if if a clunky overwritten plot will make you crazy. Martin disappoints. There's little of him in it. Over-sentimental, confusing, predictable

See it if ...you want to see Puerto Rican culture represented on stage.
Don't see it if ...you 1) like a well structured play that offers more than cliches, or 2) don't care for character driven plays that are lacking in plot.
