The Whirligig
Midtown W
Great acting, Great staging, Confusing

See it if the actors are all excellent- esp Butz who commands the show- interesting and mostly engaging- the set is very good esp. the tree branch:)

Don't see it if had to spend too much time trying to put the pieces together; not sure ultimately the story line is worth the effort- nothing new here.

See it if Sweeney Todd is a great great show- one of Sondheims gems! For that this production is worth the effort- wish I had seen the original cast !

Don't see it if if you want a great production of this brilliant musical this is not the one with this cast- Norm lewis, great actor, is mis cast in this

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you love the plays of Auust Wilson, but see it regardless for stellar acting from John Douglas thompson and the ensemble cast!

Don't see it if if you dont want a slice of real life past or present as Wilson's plays remain relevant to this day
