See it if you like plays based on historical events, in this case the run up to the 1936 Olympics & Nazi Germany.

Don't see it if you like plays with elaborate sets.

Also The acting was uneven.

Insipid, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if you welcome forced audience participation

Don't see it if you're offended by stereotypes and want to see intelligent comedy. The only thing that worked for me was the explanation of British money

Great acting, Great staging, Entertaining, Slow, Clever

See it if you're interested in Wagner or want to see great acting in a historical-ish drama

Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with plays that deal with antisemitism. While some funny parts, I wouldn't call it a comedy. A little slow in parts

Also I had no idea what to expect going in, but really liked it.

See it if You're a Ruben or Clay fan or like old-time variety shows.
