Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if You enjoy Peter Pan, Kathleen Chalfant, or plays exploring family, especially sibling relationships

Cliched, Disappointing, Overrated, Relevant, Slow

See it if You like this playwright's previous works

Don't see it if Facts matter. As someone very familiar with the economic, class and race issues this play attempts to address, I was profoundly disappointed

Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You enjoy solo performances, quirky humor and a slow pace

Don't see it if You need a play with a plot, purpose and protagonist with whom you can empathize. This play is so not funny with the same tedious bad jokes

90
Absorbing, Masterful, Relevant

See it if A brilliant portrayal how individuals, families and businesses get caught up and destroyed by harmful government policies. Brilliant staging

Don't see it if It's sometimes hard to follow the subtitles and action on a very large stage simultaneously. Very graphic, harsh death scenes and nudity

98
Enchanting, Funny, Must see

See it if You like Bernadette Peters. She is OFF the charts. Performance of a lifetime as Dolly. You like a corny score, great dance numbers and solos

Don't see it if You don't like corny, old-fashioned musicals

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Clever

See it if You liked Oslo, care about foreign affairs, diplomacy, the arms race. Only two actors, simple set. You come for the words and the thoughts

Don't see it if You don't like small casts, plays which make you think. Slow pace.

Great acting, Disappointing, Pointless

See it if You like Chloe Sevigney, enjoy small ensembles grappling with dysfunctional parenting and addiction issues

Don't see it if Strong, historically accurate plots and dialogue are important to you. And don’t see it if frequent cigarette smoking would be a challenge

Ambitious, Banal, Disappointing, Edgy, Dizzying

See it if You like David Byrne's music or clever staging and writing.

Don't see it if you actually want insight about Joan of Arc. This play is an excuse for the cast to dance and sing. Joan has never been less inspiring
