See it if you're a fan of Hal or any of the musicals or cast members in the show
Don't see it if you don't like revue's that lose the context and emotional resonance of the original productions
See it if you're a fan of Sarah Ruhl or Kathleen Chalfant. There are many weak points but there's a good story in there somewhere.
Don't see it if You don't like sentimental plays, or dream/fantasy sequences.
See it if you're invested in the story. The show has it's moments and it's great to see stories about older people having sex on stage.
Don't see it if there are maybe 2 good songs and some occasionally funny dialogue but it's slow and not very good.
See it if excellent staging and excellent performances make this overdone play seem fresh
Don't see it if you're not a Shakespeare fan
Also Annaleigh Ashford delivers a stand out performance.
See it if you want to see an interesting concept of two separate times happening on stage at once
Don't see it if the writing is weak at times and the straight couple is not as strong as the gay couple
See it if you want to see a comedy that also has emotionally serious moments. Jack DiFalco as the eldest son, Hank, is a revelation.
Don't see it if The scenes get lost in the giant set at times, for a show that should be intimate it can feel distant.
Also Celia Weston and Jack DiFalco are the standout performers.
See it if you want to see a well acted and very topical play. The play will make you think, it took me a while to figure out how I felt about it.
Don't see it if the portrayal of a male rapist as a greater victim of rape culture than the woman he rapes will turn your stomach
See it if Andy Karl delivers a stunning performance. An enchanting and hilarious musical. Would see again.
Don't see it if you don't like some crude humour.
See it if you're looking for a show to see with children or you like 3 hours of butt jokes
Don't see it if you're aware of the history of the Hottentot Venus.
