Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Quirky

See it if You love a quirky take (Acting wise) on classic tales. Actors were very good at keeping me on the edge of my seat.

Don't see it if You expect this play to spooky and have characters with a lot of depth. Although the actors were great, it's a bit of a farce.

Disappointing, Overacting, Confusing, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if If you want to support experimental, risk taking theater.

Don't see it if You can't sit through 90 min of actors pushing really hard for the laughs that don't serve the story at all. Needs more rehearsals.

Disappointing, Relevant, Overrated, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if You wantto witness the incredibly talented Glenda Jackson.

Don't see it if You want to see a classical approach to Shakespeare. Also how do you put untrained actors next to Glenda Jackson in a play like this??

Masterful, Funny, Delightful

See it if You love the one and only Bob Fosse. His work remains on Broadway for a reason.

See it if You want to enjoy a night of thought provoking, absorbing theater like you've never seen before.

Don't see it if ... I honestly can't imagine a reason not to see this. It's that good. It surpasses many expensive Broadway shows for sure.

Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a very relevant play dealing with gun violence and the aftermath of it. A very thought provoking and play.

Don't see it if Continuous monologues given by these characters directly addressing the audience for the whole play is not your thing.

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You want to leave the theater inspired.

Don't see it if Musical theater is not your thing I guess... but still see it.

Great writing, Great acting

See it if You're an Athol Fugard fan and love everything that his work stands for.

Don't see it if You are a South African and not so easily fooled by the non-South African accents. (Still worth seeing though.)

Refreshing, Must see, Clever, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if You are a huge Aaron Posner fan who has a unique take on Chekhov. (Such as his 'Stupid F*cking Bird'). Austin Pendleton is brilliant!

Don't see it if If Chekhov adaptations is not your thing. (Then again... you'd never know unless you tried it.)
