Relevant, Profound, Intense, Intelligent, Cliched

See it if You're looking for a positive story about a protagonist's relationship to religion. Coming-of-age stories tug at your heartstrings.

Don't see it if You're not interested in teenage perspectives. You're less than enthusiastic about organized Christianity.

During previews
Great acting, Enchanting, Fluffy

See it if - you saw Nanako Winkler's KENTUCKY - forgiveness as a theme speaks to you - you enjoy SOBBING

Don't see it if - you don't enjoy sobbing - you haven't seen KENTUCKY - touching family comedy/dramas aren't your thing

Epic, Refreshing, Hilarious

See it if - If tall tales make you swoon. - If you love great musicals about unsung subjects. - You have a soft spot for unique staging.

Don't see it if - silly songs confuse you (there's a large spot in the climactic end of the first act that references flatulence)

Disappointing, Funny, Great acting, Indulgent

See it if - the story of a middle-aged man going through an existential crisis resonates with you - you're a die-hard Tracy Letts fan

Don't see it if You're unenthused by the not-so-sad story of an otherwise privileged man.

Raunchy, Romantic, Profound, Great acting, Fluffy

See it if you love a nice love story you enjoy powerful stories about women by women you want to take your mom to something she'll enjoy

Don't see it if you expect the film on stage (somehow, the musical feels darker. Jenna comes off somewhat powerless in parts and Earl is scary)

Enchanting, Slow, Epic, Banal

See it if you like family dramas

Don't see it if you're expecting a unique experience. it's pretty safe.

74
Quirky, Ambitious, Intense

See it if You're interested in where Eastern ideology meets Western prudishness. You're interested in stories about families grappling with death.

Don't see it if Plotlines about child neglect trigger you. You were hoping for a more experimental evening. This is a very traditional play.

Fluffy, Indulgent, Resonant, Disappointing

See it if The Christian Right infuriates you but you're intrigued to see their failures play out onstage.

Don't see it if You hate histrionics

25
Overrated, Slow, Annoying, Sexist

See it if You're a Mamet super-fan, and that's it.

Don't see it if You find non-problems of dumb white men insufferable and therefore unworthy of story. You're offended by flat and dumb female characters.
