During previews
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if You want to see a great performance by Denzel Washington, and good performances by the rest of the cast. You like thought-provoking plays

Don't see it if You are looking for an uplifting play. You are not ready for a play that deals with people's illusions.

Disappointing, Slow

See it if You like plays with some Jewish culture, with a sprinkling of Yiddish thrown in. If you are interested in Gay or Lesbian issues.

Don't see it if You want to see an engrossing play.
