Relevant, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if you enjoy sitcoms, have cash to spare, and want an easy night out. Some fun seduction scenes are thrown into the mix.

Don't see it if you want to be challenged.

Also Loved the acting, but felt the proscenium staging stifled the action. ... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Bourgeois, Dated

See it if you might enjoy L. Metcalf's courageous acting & you want to see an award-winning, intelligent play with interesting roles for women.

Don't see it if You are completely tired of NYC plays that ostensibly talk about racism but only make use of white actors...

Don't see it if You don't like one-man shows.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you want to see diversity and wit in a gloriously original package.

Don't see it if you only watch fluffy musicals. This is big league writing.

Also Wow.... Read more Read less

Funny, Great acting, Quirky, Confusing, Polarizing

See it if you want to empathize with actors as they explore a text with an audience, and learn what the source material means to them on a gut level.

Don't see it if you don't like Wooster group, studio seating, The Deuce, post-modernism, surly Darlings, I Love Lucy, UNO, repetition...

Also This show diverges from Bedlam's previous work, and is a great chance ... Read more Read less
