Disappointing, Overrated, Insipid, Banal, Ambitious

See it if you are a teen or tween

Don't see it if You prefer great, not prosaic, musicals. It is predictable and mundane.

Entertaining, Disappointing, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you like period pieces, want to learn an interesting theory about time, see several good performances, and clever staging.

See it if You are interested in a new take on the story of diplomat/Asian lover, want to see some outstanding performances.

Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if You are unfamiliar with the film with Bette Davis, a production which captured the pathos of the book and deep sinister nature of some.

Don't see it if You want to witness audiences laughing inappropriately or you can be patient until Richard Thomas is on stage bringing much needed gravitas.

Also I saw it in previews, and with Laura Linney in lead. Maybe it matured ... Read more Read less
