See it if You like existential theater delivered by a skilled cast. Walsh's writing is dark and thought-provoking. Mikel Murfi is especially fantastic
Don't see it if You struggle with slow, non-narrative-driven theater. The central actors bring levity but the directing indulges in excruciating silences.
See it if You want a fun, interactive, and devastatingly emotional night at the theater. The genre-hopping music perfectly conveys Tolstoy's prose.
Don't see it if You are more comfortable with theater that stays behind the proscenium and musical theater that sticks to a conventional form.
See it if You enjoy pop-flavored musical theater in the style of Jason Robert Brown with teachable moments for teens.
Don't see it if You've outgrown teen lit, are adverse to cliched sentimentality, and/or want more variety and complexity in musical theater writing.
See it if Enda Walsh's play is gorgeously written, funny and more engaging to a new audience than much of his new work. Go to experience the text.
Don't see it if The actors and director don't do justice to this text. It is maddeningly slow in some sections but then skips over key moments elsewhere.
See it if You enjoy superbly sung new folk music and are interested in seeing how this team explores a deep personal trauma theatrically and musically
Don't see it if You want a more focused narrative or take on this issue. The show spends too long repeating itself and skates over moments of conflict.
