Quirky, Great staging, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if Gnit has lots of wordplay, great set, actors skillfully embodying quirky characters; it's an updated fairy tale, funny and sad.

Don't see it if you don't like a show with an intermission.

Engaging, A lot going on at once, Great acting

See it if even though there wasn't any new insight into suicide the show was well acted and staged and kept your interest.

Don't see it if suicide and shock treatment and shooting up are big no-no's for you.

Fun, Quirky, Refreshing, Funny

See it if you love old movies. This version is a melodramatic comedy or is it a comedic melodrama.

Don't see it if you don't have a sense of humor and never loved the million dollar movies.

Coal Country

A clear and resonant telling of a tragedy.

See it if I was so moved by this skillful relating of a mining disaster brought on by the unfortunate usual culprits, greed and ruthlessness.

Don't see it if you want a light cheerful time and don't enjoy Steve Earle.

Also Also, I love Steve Earle.

Flat, Monotone, Slow

See it if for an old story it goes over some territory that is still relevant today. Suzanne Vega does a good job in the "stage manager" role.

Don't see it if you're wanting a good musical as this isn't it.

Absorbing, Resonant, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if you want to see a family memoir told in a smart, different and clever way where many issues are covered, from fame to science.

See it if Racial injustice was depicted so cleverly and quirkily yet so realistically at the same time. It's a tour de force in portraying what black

Entertaining, Ambitious, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if The important theme, our planet's health, is presented in a offbeat and absorbing way. Quite spell binding.

Don't see it if You don't want to think about the state of our planet.
