See it if You want to see a revival done right. Henry Haden Patten steals the show.

Don't see it if You don’t like classic musicals. Can’t sit for 3 hours.

Resonant, Relevant, Great writing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You love Daveed Diggs, discussions of complex issues on race, slavery, Black Lives Matter, fantastic acting,

Don't see it if A confrontational approach to racial power dynamics a la the Stanford Prison experiment would be upsetting.

Must see, Masterful, Ambitious, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if GLENDA JACKSON! You want to see an absolute master at work. A great ensemble piece. If you like nontraditional casting, and Shakespeare.

Don't see it if You don’t like Shakespeare or Phillip Glass. Prefer traditional Adaptations of Shakespeare or don’t have a long attention span.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Intense, Intelligent, Epic

See it if You love the Great Gatsby. It is meant to be heard out loud. But don’t confuse that for a play. It is a reading, with actors.

Don't see it if You expect drama or you can’t sit in a theatre for 6 hours. It’s not that. It is a reading of a book with staging.

Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Must see, Hilarious

See it if you want to see a brilliantly written, and acted play about a homosexual man dealing with his lovers, and his mother.

Disappointing, Banal, Entertaining

See it if you love the world of snooker. It was entertaining, but pointless. See it if you love snarky commentary on snooker playing.

Don't see it if you are expecting the hilarity of 'One Man, Two Guvnors' because it does not live up to that. The plot completely fizzles out.

Also I personally couldn't care about the world of Snooker, and that was ha... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Disappointing, Great staging, Great acting, Masterful

See it if MUST see for Bryan Cranston’s masterful manipulation of IVH’s trademark use of cameras.

Don't see it if You don’t like nontraditional theatre. The characters were somewhat non engaging, and I did find myself bored when Cranston wasn’t on stage.

Profound, Slow, Thought-provoking, Intense, Heartbreaking

See it if See it for the brilliant performance by Elaine May who completely deteriorates infront of your eyes as she loses more and more of her mind.

Don't see it if you are easily upset by the process of getting older, and losing one's mind, senility, and taking care of one's mother/grandmother.

84
Absorbing, Slow, Intense, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you love Bob Dylan, you like untraditional narratives, multiple characters, piecing together a story.

Don't see it if you want a traditional musical where music directly carries on the narrative, or exactly reflects the situation. Clear cut main characters

88
Great acting, Intense, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you have ever felt lost, or unseen. If you want to see a musical that deals with these sensitive topics, you want a cathartic experience.

Don't see it if you have a hard time dealing with sensitive subjects such as suicide, and depression.
