See it if You've never seen the play before, and want to know what all the fuss is about, or why it's required reading for so many college students.
Don't see it if You go to the theater more for plot, grand theatrics and/or fun than for profundity.
See it if You want to see the next generation of great talent start to blossom in this city. Impressive acting, direction and writing all around.
Don't see it if You don't like to stand and move around when you see a show.
See it if You want to see what jukebox musicals are capable of and can dare to be. Great ones, like this show, can make you re-think well-known songs.
Don't see it if Your definition of a musical includes chorus kick lines, hilarious hijinks and lots of playing out front. This show is subtle and spare.
See it if You liked "Gentlemen's Guide to Love and Murder" and enjoy period, old-style musicals with quirky sensibilities.
Don't see it if You only like modern work that's been heavily polished. This is a festival show.
See it if You're interested in seeing a theatrical exploration of women's rage. That's what this is. And it's fun, and funny, and occasionally moving.
Don't see it if You'll be bothered by the ridiculous play-within-a-play that has no connection to reality whatsoever and undermines the depicted, real rage.
See it if You want to be perplexed as to why Oskar Eustis chose to have this play done at The Public.
Don't see it if Money and time have value to you. (That's too harsh, actually. But this show irritated me, despite its very fine actors.)
See it if You want to see one of the greatest plays written in the modern era.
Don't see it if You've got a short attention span. Or just see the first part.
See it if Spectacle and special effects suffice for a day's entertainment.
Don't see it if You're bothered by a first act that's entirely expository.
See it if You want to see what most shows at the Edinburgh Fringe are like. Or are interested in gender dynamics in action.
Don't see it if Real plot and real stakes matter to you. Or if you're 30 or older.
See it if You want to support new work and a new voice. The ideas of this show are worthwhile, as is this author's voice.
Don't see it if You don't want to be disappointed. This play won the 2018 Horton Foote Prize for Most Promising New Play, but it's not ready for prime time.
See it if You need a laugh, cause the colorful characters, especially darling Waxy Bush, will give you plenty in this beautifully constructed play.
Don't see it if British comedy is not your thing, or if you're not into laughing, or if you don't like theatre whatsoever.
See it if You don't want to miss another legendary performance by Janet McTeer. Her work here rivals what she did in "A Doll's House". Yes, that good.
Don't see it if You have no interest in theatrical history, Shakespeare, gender dynamics, beautiful sets or a powerful new play.
See it if You want to see a show that knows what it is, doesn't take itself too seriously, and knows how to land joke after joke.
Don't see it if Underwritten female roles bother you. (Cause these are massively underwhelming.)
See it if You've always wondered what this Hammerstein-Bizet mash-up would look, sound and feel like.
Don't see it if You hate wonderful singing. Or hate shows that last less than five hours.
See it if Yes yes yes yes yes! Or should I say, YAS, QUEEN! This play tackles the issues and debates that homos are having privately and publicly.
Don't see it if You think that baker in Colorado was in the right when he refused to decorate that cake.
See it if You want to see a legend giving a legendary performance. Yes, Glenda Jackson is THAT good.
Don't see it if You're only into linear narrative plots.
