Resonant, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if You're a Neil LaBute fan. His piece was extraordinary: timely, thought provoking, excellent performances.

Don't see it if You like tidy endings. All three pieces are open-ended, which can be grist for conversation with others who saw the pieces, or frustrating.

Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if You are a fan of Marsha Mason. She's utterly masterful in this piece--not to be missed!

Intelligent, Slow, Resonant, Relevant

See it if You appreciate drama that unfolds in surprising ways.

Don't see it if You don't like an extended time of child actors. It makes sense once the adults emerge, but is quite repetitive/slow during that phase.

See it if Memorable music, great staging & costumes. Clever take around fantasizing about alternative Oz dimensions.

Don't see it if ...you're expecting the highlight of all time for a musical. I didn't experience it as good as the build-up/hype surrounding it.

See it if Some compelling special effects, effective period costuming, memorable songs.

Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You want to be transported by exceptional actors and can hardly wait to debrief with those you shared it with. The Bridge: exceptional!

Don't see it if You don't like short plays! It can be disappointing to get wrapped up in characters & have it end so much sooner than you wish!
