Excruciating, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You are interested in minute-by-minute backstory to Israeli peqce accords and can tolerate a lot of screaming.

Don't see it if you need sophisticated writing and staging. The characters were cariacatures and shouted and cursed non stop. UGH. How did this win Tony??

Also I thought this did a terrible dsserve to history AND theater. It wasn'... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Clever, Great writing, Slow, Absorbing

See it if You like plays in style of Ibsen, Shaw, or realism. It was a tiny theater with excellent actors.

Don't see it if you are looking for something big. It's early O'Neill by a small troupe.

Thought-provoking, Slow, Great acting, Great ideas, but needs editing, Intelligent

See it if You like plays like "Raisin in the Sun" and "Death of a Salesman." Strong message, and great African-American ensemble.

Don't see it if Conventional realism isn't your thing. It needed editing, so be prepared to see lots of repetition.

Funny, Great acting, Quirky, Clever, Great writing

See it if you love New York and everything about it. Or hate New York and everything about it. Quinn is low-key, funny, and spot-on. A great time.

Don't see it if you are looking for laugh-a-minute comedy or something terribly profound.

Edgy, Original, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Funny

See it if you enjoy watching an astounding actress telling stories that draw you in and leave your head spinning with laughter and horror.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of the humorous macabre genre or if you are not patient with one-person shows.

Disappointing, Relevant, Slow

See it if ... you are interested in the topic and can tolerate some cartoonization of the characters.

Don't see it if ...you like a faster-paced play. The writing was kind of flat and the staging-- that revolving stage-- wasn't effective. Repetitive.

85
Profound, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if ... you like Paula Vogel's work and appreciate a serious drama that challenges.

Don't see it if ... you want a face-paced piece. It is quite redundant (on purpose).

Funny, Banal, Clever, Rather silly, Entertaining

See it if you like funny, entertaining theater that you'll forget 2 hours later

Don't see it if you expect something profound from the experience.

Riveting, Intense, Masterful

See it if This play, woman written, directed, and acted, puts faces to the horror of Liberian civil wars. Excellent ensemble.

Don't see it if You need to be open to a theatrical experience that doesn't leave you smiling or joyful. It's powerful theater.

Exquisite, Enchanting, Resonant

See it if It's a timely reinterpretation of a Classic myth. Outstanding performances.

Don't see it if This is not for the average theater goer. It's for the thoughtful, engaged spectator.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Relevant, Entertaining, Original

See it if you want a musical that is thought provoking and touching, as opposed to glitzy and loud.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of Bechdel, or don't have an open mind about growing up gay with a closeted gay parent.
