Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Disappointing

See it if You would like to see some great actors enjoy performing in a fairly good play with good writing. (Also Michael Cera and Chris Evans fans.)

Don't see it if You want a play that will stick with you and really says a lot. It's not a major work but perfectly enjoyable for the right price.
