Little Gem
Chelsea
Nicely resolved, Difficult to understand accents, Dizzying, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You like great performances -- Marsha Mason's -- OK with thick Irish accents, like shows that get more interesting as they develop

Don't see it if You don't have patience or interest in women and their problems.

Ambitious, Make you feel good about humanity, Slightly redundant, Heartwarming

See it if you like shows about ordinary people behaving with extraordinary humanity

Don't see it if I can't think of any reason why this show would not be enjoyed.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if If you love everything that the NY Times loves!

Don't see it if I can't think of a reason. It's worth seeing if you like romantic in a different way comedies. Several of the stars overact but that's OK.

Also Those playing the lesbians are wonderfully understated and likable.

Downstairs
West Village
Great acting, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you want to see more great acting, by Dr. McCord, TV Ethics mavin, as well as by his sis Tyne Daly. It's worth your while to watch these two

Don't see it if you squirm at a play with an interesting start - a menage a trois, but ends on a cliched note. Not Rebeck's best but not her worst either

Funniest, smartest, realest first act but

See it if you like sparkling, LOL real dialog, great award-winning performances, and believable characters. I absolutely loved the first act

Don't see it if It you don't like plays that don't get completely resolved in the second act, which also needs to be cut and condensed.

See it if If you're a fan of innovation, have a sense of humor and like to laugh out loud at people's peculiar antics, at least in the first act

Don't see it if If you don't like a mixture of Chekov and Shakespeare this is not for you.

The Fourth Wall
Midtown W
Dated, Disappointing

See it if It was slightly amusing, and most of the audience seemed amused

Don't see it if you really want actors who are cast and can perform with the kind of Buffalo Upper Crust Wasp finesse that Gurney was a master off

Also Badly cast, badly directed, lacked restraint and style.

Difficult to understand british accents, Hokey, Well acted, Too complicated

See it if you like plays where the accent is impossible to understand until the second act and you like unresolved cons but well performed.

Don't see it if you don't like plays with low class British accents, that are hokey and have an interesting idea with an unsatisfactory glib ending

71
Well acted and danced but on its 40's anniversary flaws in the script are getting more obvious

See it if you've liked it before and want to see it again with very able performers

Don't see it if you, like I am, are offended by bullying overbearing director Zak.
