Don't see it if you don't want to see a middle aged woman talking in the voice of a teenager and complaining about not looking like a teenager.

Clever, Disappointing, Great acting, Quirky, Great staging

See it if you want to truly feel like a fly on the wall due to Billie Piper's phenomenally fluid acting and the clever terrarium conceit.

Don't see it if Lorca's name being used to sell a story about an upper middle class woman despairing because of she doesn't get what she wants offends.

Don't see it if you crave serious drama straight up.

Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Relevant, Intense

See it if the Grey of the Black and White of right and wrong, G-d and justice, confidence and humility, seems worth shading.

Great acting, Great writing, Exquisite, Absorbing, Great staging

See it if you want to see a gorgeously acted, written and staged piece on time, race, integrity and... wait for it... racism without being racist.

Don't see it if you just want something light. Although you will laugh continuously throughout the journey of this show. Plus some.

Cliched, Dated, Dizzying, Disappointing, Intense

See it if you want to see a high energy performance.

Don't see it if you are turned off by trite platitudes and cultural appropriations in the guise of liberal (rhymed) preaching.

77
Confusing, Entertaining, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if the quiet strength and humor of farm life beckons potential thought.

Don't see it if A singing cow is too: much, quirky, confusing.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if you want to feel vindicated in your sense of injustice via spectacle.

Don't see it if you feel there is a difference between preaching injustices through over acted finger pointing at the audience and art.

75
Cliched, Dated, Funny, Insipid, Slow

See it if wanna be Tennessee Williams set in England sounds enticing.

Don't see it if you know no one but Tennessee can be Tennessee. Or you find preaching injustice falls short of theatrical art.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you care about the different sides of war. Here, three women from three sides are given voice. Angel is powerful and raw and unapologetic.

Don't see it if you have an aversion to considering the unique angle of women in war. or if you want bells and whistles with staging.

Great acting, Must see, Profound, Resonant, Riveting

Don't see it if you don't want to be challenged by causes of suffering in the before, during and afterwards.

80
Ambitious, Intelligent, Quiet

See it if you are a Tracy Letts fan and/or are interested in the the crises of marriage in understated lives.

Don't see it if quick vignettes seam like lazy writing - even if touchingly quiet. Or big leaps between two worlds won't break the reality of the play.

70
Disappointing

See it if you are a fan of Janet McTeer, who is a force.

Don't see it if you are craving a true sense of electric danger.

Disappointing, Insipid, Overrated

See it if you are a huge vaudeville fan no matter the level of execution.

Don't see it if you want polished acts, courteous ushers or actually want to experience immersive theater. This is not immersive theater.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Quirky

See it if you want to see great costumes and laugh over lingering mis-steps between generations.

Don't see it if you want really tight ensemble acting - all actors are talented but not always coordinated with each other.

Delightful, Confusing, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you want to see a fantastic ensemble piece. Really buoyant energy from all the actors.

Don't see it if you want to see wit at it's height. Some of the jokes didn't land original and some of the conceit needed clarifying for the farce to play.

Banal, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if an amuse bouche of Albee is sufficient for a confused appetizer and stale entree.

Don't see it if you're really hungry.

58
Banal, Cliched, Fluffy, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if you just like anything multimedia. Daniel Kublick gets at a touching character.

Don't see it if uneven acting, having to turn around all the time or being a part of the stage setting is a turn off. Or if Dostoyevsky is sacred to you.

60
Disappointing, Indulgent, Touching

See it if you aren't afraid of the razor edge of an issue.

Don't see it if face acting is a turn off. Acting was uneven and heavy handed, save the part played by the son who felt like a real human being.

75
Funny

See it if you love Ed Harris...he is superb. Also, if you are sometimes underwelmed by overly clever set design. Great old fashioned set that serves

Don't see it if sitting for almost 2 hrs without an intermission is painful

Delightful, Funny, Relevant, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if an Asian woman unapologetically and humorously protesting the boxes in a raw and messy manner seems timely.

Don't see it if addressing queer issues might leave you feeling outside a different box.

75
Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if you want to see modern anxiety issues explored with humor.

Don't see it if you are irked by vocal non-training. Or if cultural appropriation bastardization is part of the circular loop related to anxiety.

90
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if seamless shifts in impersonations, funny mocking of cultural ignorance and exposure of the toll of an artist's way will inspire something.

Don't see it if you don't want your stereotypes challenged.

85
Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you're interested in theater commenting on theater, millenial culture, professorial influence and painful family unspokens.

Don't see it if commenting on the process of creating great art is different from great art. shallow obsessions with prestige seems shallow subject matter.

Delightful, Entertaining, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if you like opera but aren't a fan. Or if you are curious about opera, and opera cum musical will tickle you with a political feather.

Don't see it if if you are an ardent opera buff. The great arcs aren't fulfilled and you may not be, either.

90
Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great staging, Intense

See it if you want to see some hard to fill roles fulfilled. Hal in particular. Simple, unpretentious staging matches the work and lets it breathe.

Don't see it if you want a lot of bells and whistles. The bells and whistles are internal, screaming, crying, sitting in extended afternoons of lost time.

75
Great staging, Thought-provoking, Brave

See it if you want to feel the intimacy of this play, sitting as if in the living room.

Don't see it if dark, hidden subject matter from other times will not impact you, simply because they are more talked about in present times.

Cliched, Relevant

See it if Identity issues on their own will stand in for plot and richly developed characters. Martinez is loose and moving and funny.

Don't see it if You want more than a list of grievances.

85
Funny, Thought-provoking, Moving

See it if you want to see some bravery. Unspoken things spoken where the humor adds a sensitivity to serious subject matter.

Don't see it if you really want a typical stand up routine. This is serious subject matter.

Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Quirky, Slow

See it if you are a fan of David Hyde Pierce. His monologue ranging from mundane to astrological pathos is a delight.

Don't see it if you are impatient with concepts gesturing at unsettling juxtapositions in life without sufficient fleshing out to be truly moving.

For a previous production
Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if you want to see a play that has its finger on the throbbing jugular of our country right now. excellent acting, everyone brings it.

Don't see it if if you only like bouncy musicals? hard pressed to come up with something critical. so well executed from writing, staging and acting.

89

Absorbing, Masterful, Intelligent, Profound, Resonant

See it if you love Miller. His themes transcend momentary politics. Great acting by Saoirse and unevenly poignant acting by Ben.

Don't see it if you find undulating museum walls distracting from the art at hand. Van Hove - no need for the cinematic. Great writing needs no dressing.

Don't see it if you want a take on war that's original.

Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Resonant, Relevant

See it if you love great writing. Some lines rang in my belly. Really moving performance by MCKINLEY BELCHER III. KHRIS DAVIS brought it home.

Don't see it if a shouting match between two actors sends you twitching...only flaw in an otherwise great production about unseen consequences.
