Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if You want to see a quirky, intense drama about environmentalism. You want to see great actors give nuanced performances of frustrating people

Don't see it if You want something straightforward. You’re bothered by odd pacing and, to quote another reviewer, endings that are a little far-fetched.

Disappointing

See it if This show is already closed and I can't complain

Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You want to see a beautifully acted one-woman play that's essentially a monologue on post-war trauma

Don't see it if You're bothered by racism and transphobia. You want a likable narrator or satisfying conclusion.

Slow, Great singing, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You want to see some great songs and talented actors, and don't need any sort of emotional arc or forward motion.

Don't see it if You dislike melodrama. You don't have the patience to sit through eighty minutes of singing/monologuing for ten minutes of plot.

Slow, Cliched, Great acting

See it if You want a beautifully-acted, if clunkily written, story about people who don't know how to let go of a lost loved one

Don't see it if You're tired of stories about people working through their grief over a lost loved one; you expect anything new or thoughtful about AI

Ambitious, Confusing, Slow, Absorbing

See it if You like dark psychological stories with fantastical twirls (I'd call it more fabulism than absurdism)

Don't see it if You're bothered by small-scale, sometimes confusing productions. You prefer straightforward narratives or musicals.

Confusing, Great acting, Clever

See it if You like brilliantly acted, interestingly staged twists on Shakespeare.

Don't see it if You want a big-budget production; you're bothered by slightly confusing stage direction (e.g. wasn't always clear if characters were dead)

Funny, Intelligent, Fun

See it if You want to learn more about neuroscience while listening to freestyle rap and laughing a lot

Don't see it if You want a straightforward show. This is a combination psych lecture and rap session; definitely not your standard performance.

Don't see it if You want something light -- yes it's funny but it gets dark. You care about accuracy -- Mormons don't even believe in Hell.

Funny, Raunchy, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You want to support amateur artists in a strange, over-the-top, occasionally amusing and occasionally embarassing parody.

Don't see it if You want anything polished. It was so slapdash, sloppy, and forced that I genuinely thought I'd misunderstood and was watching improv.

Disjointed, Indulgent, Great singing, Confusing, Banal

See it if You like small, intimate productions that wander through the twists of a relationship falling apart. You want your expectations overturned.

Don't see it if You mind uneven singing quality (the lead woman wasn't as good as the rest of the cast), weird pacing, and self-indulgent writing.

Slow, Dated

See it if You want to see a pretty, if predictable musical about a woman trying to escape a bad marriage. You like baking. You don't mind being hungry

Don't see it if You expect great songs. One song and one singer are EMBARRASSINGLY better than everything else. And one subplot made zero sense.
