See it if you want to watch a brilliantly staged production of an epic play. The cast is uniformly great and it is sadly quite relevant.

Don't see it if you can't sit through 2+ hours of dialogue, or keep track of a rotating cast of characters

See it if you want to see a theater A-list cast perform one of the greats. Each actor gives it their all and the end result is a wildly riveting show.

Don't see it if you need to see fully staged productions, but you should still see it.

Also I hope this production was recorded. It is truly must-see.
