If you like this person's taste, follow him!
See it if you like crime podcasts. This isn't a diss. It's just a new type of audio theatre that draws you in w/ horrific details.
Don't see it if hate one-person shows.
See it if you want a twist on film noir genre and to dive into what feels like a visual staging of a personal crime podcast.
Don't see it if you want something traditional. Also don't see this if you hate monologue-based plays b/c the lead character is narrating the entire time.
See it if for the history, the music, the second act flashback to the past (which is the best part of the play), and the rock concert.
Don't see it if you want coherent drama. All over the place in tone and scope, as well as way too many coincidences. B+ for historical impact and songs.
See it if you want something quirky, different, and that hits you off-center with word play, puns, and existential angst.
Don't see it if you want a plot-driven narrative. This is more about the casual and absurd elements of life...in other words, a classic Will Eno work.
See it if You are willing to sit with a slow-burn play about ideas. This is theatre of debate, filled with strong philosophical and political views.
Don't see it if Want a traditional drama. This is not a play for polite ppl and I disagreed with 90% of the ideas tossed around.
See it if want a riff on Chekhov that manages to be light, witty, but rooted in some deep existential questions.
Don't see it if don't like Chekhov or that sort of moody acting where people complain about how miserable they are but, in fact, they are very privileged.
See it if like expansive funny/tragic stories told in theatrical ways. The play is about land repossession in China, but it's a transformative journey
Don't see it if want a classical narrative or traditional storytelling.
See it if you want a play with a twist at the end. It takes a while to get there but it's an interesting development.
Don't see it if want a play that shoots out of the gates with fury and passion. A lot of exposition.
See it if like layered, emotional family dramas or memory plays well staged, acted, and designed. Many of the scenes have a beautiful sadness to them.
Don't see it if you don't like LGBT themes.
See it if you want a piercing satire. Even though it's written during a different time, the humor and insanity feel as relevant as ever.
Don't see it if Want something lighter or less acidic. This is a dark dark work
See it if you want a play that provokes a discussion and has some very controversial opinions about...well, I don't want to spoil it.
Don't see it if you are scared by violence, strong language.
See it if you want a cute, small, quirk of a play. This doesn't amaze as much as amuse. And it's only 70 minutes.
Don't see it if expect a serious examination of environmental issues or depth. This is a sketch of a play...and it works like that.
See it if want a passionate family story told with emotion and humor.
Don't see it if that isn't perfect. There is still some fat that could be trimmed. But still very moving.
See it if you want a profound story on the intersections of life for immigrants fleeing from trauma who arrive in America carrying ghosts.
Don't see it if A clean drama. There is stuff in here that doesn't logically make sense. The play wins on passion and performance.

Don't see it if you're looking for a smooth flowing story where everything adds up.
See it if like absorbing, contemporary stories about what it means to tell the truth in lit journalism, and in the age of Twitter.

See it if you liked "What the Constitution Means to Me" and want to see more theatre of debate that's filled with provocative ideas.
Don't see it if you want a traditional play with love interests and b-plots. This is all about the debate (and that might be a good thing to some)

Don't see it if you want a well-made play.
See it if you like slow burners and family dramas about mortality.
Don't see it if drawn out scenes about Alzheimer's or old age bug you. Or if you think Michael Cera plays a fundamental part in this play.
See it if like new forms of theatre that address our current plight in context of feminism, the Constitution, and history.
Don't see it if dislike new forms or want a naturalistic play.
See it if You love contemporary American history mixed with intersectional race, politics, multireligious blend of New York.
Don't see it if you're squeamish about blood, gay men talking about love, or didactic conversations about politics.
See it if you want a queer love story about fighting for your truth in a society set against you. This is a classic me vs. world story with new twists

See it if you want queer experimental theatre with gender switches, aboriginal mythology, colonialism, and sex talk.
Don't see it if if you want naturalism.
See it if yo like illusionism mixed with pragmatic approaches to studying people's behavior and nonverbal tells. Derren breaks it down.
Don't see it if if you expect a traditional magic show or women being sawed in half. This is both a lot lighter and creepier.
See it if want to see glimpses of great acting trapped behind an unbearably pretentious design and concept.
Don't see it if you don't like a design team shouting the theme of the play at every single moment and depriving the audience of the journey.

See it if want to see something that both challenges musical conventions and transforms them into something utterly new and epic.
Don't see it if you want a traditional musical or narrative. This is meta-fiction/memoir on steroids.
See it if you want a suspenseful drama about ghosts, family, and exorcises the past.
Don't see it if you want to be shocked. It's not really scary and some of the design elements undercut the play.
See it if Loved the nostalgic memories, moves, and music. Unbelievably electric performers.
Don't see it if you're looking for a revolutionary musical. It is a bit by the book in places and slows in the second act. But overall it's still fantastic.
See it if like "The Colored Museum" and other episodically structured plays with epic rants and tirades. It's a nice change of pace.
Don't see it if want a drama or a linear play with character arcs that follow through the entire play. This is more a play of eruption and delirium,
See it if you want new theatre, new themes, and a new voice that's breaking boundaries. This was like a cross btw GET OUT and MULHOLLAND DRIVE.
Don't see it if you want something traditional or easy to understand
See it if you want to get lost in an experimental play that stretches across time and space and race. A fresh, dynamic, and dizzying work.
Don't see it if you expect an accurate kitchen-sink historical drama. Not. This. Play.

Don't see it if don't like issue-based drama.
See it if you want something intimate, experimental, and like a slice-of-life character study.
Don't see it if you want a lot of nudity or sexual heat. The show is a bit of tease with all of its salacious promises.
See it if you want something different. The play kind of floats on along on these cutesy jokes that build toward endearing and provocative moments
Don't see it if you want a traditional play or one that starts right away. This is a slow burn.
See it if you want complex and layered story about blackness and 'strivers.' And you want it set in contemporary times.
Don't see it if want the typical black play that's just tragedy porn or a civil rights story or slavery.
See it if you want good acting in an imperfect play that takes a contrarian view on race and sexuality.
Don't see it if you want complexity that follows through. We lose 2/3rds of the story at the end and focus on one couple. Why? Didn't make sense.
See it if love "In Treatment" or want to watch couples therapy on stage between two well-meaning people.
Don't see it if want drama, stakes, obstacles, or all the usual components of theatre.
See it if like new forms and black theatre that breaks boundaries.
Don't see it if you want to see black narratives done with a kitchen-sink realism motif.
