See it if You want to see a powerful Othello and Desdemona relationship, are interested in a fantastic Emilia, are a fan of this great play
Don't see it if You want to see the actors. The tall ensemble block the leads (when the set isn't). You think Iago should be a dramatic character.
See it if You enjoy a challenge. The play defies traditional story-telling structure, makes philosophy active, and seems written for today's politics
Don't see it if Dense language and references to history are not for you. The play also veers from structure most audiences find accessible.
See it if Real people and not over intellectualized theater excite you. Poetry meets brutal honesty in fierce dialogue and delivery .
Don't see it if The tone was in and out the evening I saw it, and the humor was lost in places.
See it if The film is transformed into a stunning, simple work of art. The tension is high, though the script never hits you over the head with it.
Don't see it if It's probably helpful to know something of the tensions in that part of the world...but I can't imagine anyone not being riveted by this.
See it if The score is beautiful--as are the voices. And the leads are gems of the Theater.
Don't see it if I couldn't get past the campy direction and cheesy takes. I guess this just wasn't for me. If it wasn't for Bernadette I would have left.
See it if Yerma is a Master work in direction, adaptation, design and acting. The audience truly watches a brilliantly crafted journey.
Don't see it if It's not easy to watch something so real and performances so ruthless and vulnerable. But for me, it is far more rewarding.

See it if You want to enjoy two sumptuous female characters who are the most likeable villains I have seen in years. Like delicious language.

Don't see it if You are narrow minded about the woes of capitalism.
See it if You like a great score, stunning lyrics, and enjoy pie!
Don't see it if Too bad about Jesse Mueller - wish I could have seen Betsy Wolfe. But awesome score. Direction was glossy and not deeply impactful.
See it if An important topic, well written and beautifully directed. For a first staging it proves resonant. Multiple endings need focusing.
Don't see it if Aren't interested in opening your mind to other voices and perspectives than the white patriarchy.
See it if You have a time traveling machine. This is better than August Osage County. It provides context for metaphor and poetry for dialogue.
