See it if you want to see the best play I’ve seen in years :)

Don't see it if sexual content and discussions about race bother you. This play dives in deep to uncomfortable topics

Great acting, Delightful, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if This is an intellectual commentary on socio-political issues disguised within fart and duck jokes. It’s clever, very well acted.

Don't see it if This is easy village art on a broadway stage so don’t go for the name talent, because you will have the wrong expectations.

Don't see it if if you want to see a good production of king Lear. It is in all honestly a bit of a mess

Dated, Indulgent, Great staging, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You like Lois Smith - she has a very lovely performance about 2/3rds of the way into Act 2.

Don't see it if You want to see a show about the generation lost to AIDS because it sometimes talks about that but it’s buried in 6 hrs of bad soap opera

Also They cast 5 straight men in the 5 leads and then marketed this as the ... Read more Read less

Resonant, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy good acting and good writing in what’s basically two 1-man shows. Very enjoyable and entertaining.

Don't see it if You get distracted by bad theater behavior. The majority of the audience are there to fangirl over Jake Gyllenhaal and it can get irritating

Also The first half is better than the second, mainly because it’s not as o... Read more Read less

Dizzying, Clever, Slow, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you like plays about Irish people and culture. You like a twist you don’t see coming.

Don't see it if you don’t want to sit for 3 and half hours. Be warned, it’s long. You don’t like cursing or thick accents.
