Great acting, Slow, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if you like Shakespeare, and complicated politically-minded shows

Don't see it if you don't like/understand Shakespeare, need good fight choreography, want to sit for hours

Also Coriolanus is my favorite Shakespeare play, so I hold the productions ... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great writing, Riveting, Masterful, Intense

See it if You want to see several actors at the top of their game taking on a challenging play to very successfull results. Amazing direction.

Clever, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You want a story about a family that isn't an intense drama, maybe most suited for an older crowd.

Don't see it if You want dark drama, clashing family members, something fast-paced. Younger audiences probably won't relate to the story as well.

War Paint
Midtown W
Funny, Great acting, Great singing, Entertaining, Interesting

See it if You want to see two masters of their craft in their element, perfectly balanced with each other. Beautiful set and costumes.

Don't see it if you want to see the show for an exciting story, without the star power of LuPone and Ebersole the show might feel a bit slow and empty.
