See it if you enjoy an intense play with a huge cast. You'll laugh and be shocked. The involved story makes the time pass.

Slow, Great acting, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if a well performed British play written and set in the 1920s with a class conflict discussion that is relevant to today is your "cup of tea"

Don't see it if you want an energetic, fast moving play. (I wish the entire play had the energy of the last scene.)

Banal, Entertaining, Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if you like chaos on stage. Lots of running around, characters with no idea what to do. That's the point but it didn't make for good theater

Delightful, Great singing, Funny, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy a fun show where it's obvious the actors are also having a fun time.

Don't see it if you think every musical set in the past should be Hamilton.

Don't see it if you want a deeper drive into the individual characters

Also Felt more cruel than funny in many places. Characters saying very hurt... Read more Read less
