Delightful, Confusing, Quirky, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if you enjoy a solid ensemble with actors moving in and out of multiple characters. Lots of fun moments.

Don't see it if the concept didn't feel fully fleshed out...though it was a lot of fun to watch.

Thought-provoking, Great writing, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if you enjoy brilliant acting of a powerful play that explores a dark past in this country's history.

Don't see it if painful depictions of the past exploring the vile abuse of slave women is triggering.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Relevant, Great acting

See it if strong acting with a relevant story about parenting in the LGBTQ community.

Don't see it if you prefer musicals or lighter productions. This is an important story and will open your mind.

Weak script, Awkward transitions, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you like David Cromer - he's excellent.

Don't see it if get bored easily...I really think the fault lies in the script; it seemed miscast (and I ADORE these actors in other plays & movies).

Also Also, very long and awkward transitions.

Relevant, Great writing, Funny, Delightful

See it if you like comedies, particularly those that expose the hypocrisies of the Thanksgiving holidays. Also, great design team.

Don't see it if you lean liberal and are uncomfortable laughing at yourself. A central theme of the play is going too far with political correctness.

Also FastHorse has a great voice and the Thanksgiving interludes were chill... Read more Read less

Epic, Must see, Masterful, Great staging, Great acting

See it if I left the theater energized -- it was so powerful. Really and truly, not to be missed.

Don't see it if Irish dialects are hard for you to interpret.

Also It was so so good.

Interesting, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if you like exploring different facets of Shakespeare's canon. There were some stand out performances in the ensemble.

Don't see it if you are a Shakespeare scholar and/or purist. A little clunky in the cuts, but I was definitely intrigued by the interpretation.

Thought-provoking, Edgy, Great acting, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you like exploring uncomfortable subject matter told brilliantly by an excellent cast. I thought about this play for days after seeing it.

Don't see it if sexually explicit scenes make you uncomfortable or trigger painful memories. Racism and sexual violence warning.

Don't see it if you prefer musicals or, I don't know, Shakespeare? But you should see it.

Also I'm a huge fan of Rebecca Taichman and this production is brilliant. F... Read more Read less

See it if you like high-brow, dark, British comedies. And/or interested in work of Yasmina Reza. The production boasts an all-star cast.

Don't see it if you don't like repetition to showcase a point and/or you grow bored with intellectual comedies.

Also I love Yasmina Reza's plays and it was a treat experiencing one of her... Read more Read less

Funny, Fluffy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you like British comedies -- it was fun and doesn't require a lot of thinking.

Don't see it if you have trouble with thick dialects or want a story with depth. It is a *longish* 2+ hour comedy.

Also The real-life snooker player and the scene built around the championsh... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Interesting, Overrated, Great writing

See it if you want to see a new interpretation of one of the great American musicals.

Don't see it if you are a purist and would be disappointed in a stripped down version of Oklahoma.

Also There were some interesting choices made in the production, some that ... Read more Read less

Resonant, Relevant, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if This is a well-produced play with important issues that is not only thought-provoking, but fun. Bonus: it has a little of everything!

Don't see it if You like traditional storytelling. It is set in the 1940s and girls have cell phones (which is brilliant).

Also Fantastic design elements for an indie company working in a small venu... Read more Read less
