Delightful, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy the wonderful physical comedy that Kevin Kline brings to the role.

Don't see it if Coward comedies are not your thing.

Great singing, Great acting, Cliched

See it if You love to watch masters of singing/acting in motion: Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole

Don't see it if You want a musical with a more memorable score (songs and staging were a little one note for me, but Patti and Christine shine)

76
Great acting, Quirky

See it if You want a raw, stripped-down version of this play (albeit one that succeeds in some areas but falls flat in others).

Don't see it if You are expecting to be immersed in Williams' wonderful lyricism.

For a previous production

See it if You really need a good laugh.

Don't see it if You hate comedies.

82
Edgy, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if you like something very original in a one-person show.

Don't see it if you can't commit to a somewhat long run time.

Riveting, Thought-provoking, Funny, Great singing

See it if You like inspired immersion of music - with spot on harmonies - and text, along with excellent physical movement and acting.

Don't see it if You like intermissions - this one runs one hour and twenty minutes without one.

Enchanting, Great staging

See it if As a classic, this mostly stands up - although wanted more edge and angles in the relationship. Great sets.

Don't see it if You don't like brilliant sets.

Entertaining, Funny, Resonant

See it if You enjoy plays like 39 Steps (similar concept). Solid acting and staging - thought the actors did a good job conveying the time.

Don't see it if If you don't like shows on the long side (chairs were not comfortable and they easily could have cut 20-25 minutes from the show).

Cliched, Great singing, Slow, Indulgent

Slow

See it if Solid slice of life - characterizations are spot on.

Don't see it if Very, very slow to find its feet in the beginning - the first half felt a bit gratuitous in humor, but picks up later on.

98
Clever, Great acting, Masterful

Don't see it if Can't think of a reason why you wouldn't!

Edgy, Great acting, Original

See it if The acting is terrific - especially the younger set. Although I wanted the music to be more compelling at times, the show's heart is there.

Don't see it if You don't have an open mind and heart.
