Soho/Tribeca
Clever, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if you respect imaginative undertakings and enjoy very good ensemble performances.

Don't see it if you like linear scripts and traditional staging. Also, if VERY LOUD nonsense syllables are distressing.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Must see, Relevant

See it if you appreciate excellent acting. The interaction among the characters is seamless and riveting. Each actor totally inhabits his/her role.

Don't see it if you don't like political or emotional themes. At times it is a bit hard to follow as there is a lot going on.

Also I already have a ticket to see it a second time before it closes.

Don't see it if you are sensitive to frank language and unconventional staging.

Clever, Funny, Intense, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if you remember Nichols & May. May delivers hilarity and pathos in equal measure and does not miss a line. The entire cast is excellent.

Don't see it if you do not care for the subject of the effects of dementia on a family.

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if you like clever writing, performed by an actor who nails his part, and a child who performs with the chops of an adult.

Don't see it if you don't like child actors or small productions that make you think.

Also Richard Masur was perfect as Bernard. We saw Eve Johnson, the alternat... Read more Read less

Don't see it if raunchiness and sexual language offend you.

Also If the show had consisted of the second act preceded by 1/2 of the 1st... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if The acting is superb and due to inspired editing, you can actually follow the story line. The sight lines are excellent from any seat.

Don't see it if The miking is inadequate and, as it is in the round(ish), when the actors are facing away from you you cannot hear them.

Also If you go, please get the hearing devices. We were hurried into the th... Read more Read less
