Intense, Entertaining

See it if you like one-man shows about famous Broadway actors. The show is a little fluffy in the beginning, but gains riveting intensity by the end.

Don't see it if you want a big, extravaganza of a show with a happy ending.

Absorbing, Intelligent

See it if you want a family drama with great dialog. While a long play, it does not drag along. Pretty much keeps your interest throughout.

Don't see it if you don't like family angst. Ethnic (Jewish) issues may not interest everybody. The ending is a bit obscure.

Quirky

See it if you want an absurdist play. Kind of interesting and does make a point in the end. Some funny moments. Some unexplained moments.

Don't see it if you don't want a plot that can ware a little thin along the way. You need to suspend some believably.

Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if you like a tap dancing musical. Energetic cast works hard and does a very good job with so-so numbers. The old standbys are great.

Don't see it if you want good original material. Musical numbers between the old standbys are ho-hum.

Don't see it if you don't like one-man shows. This unsanitized version may be unsettling for some. Not for the faint of heart.
