If you like this person's taste, follow him or her!
See it if You love Broadway musicals and want to check out rarely staged “imperfect” gems! And if you love Jerry Herman!
Don't see it if You’re expecting a happy ending or a “perfect” classic.
See it if You want a chance to see two fine actors. Relatable if you have an elderly parent..or if you have adult children
Don't see it if If you’re under 50. Won’t be able to relate...which is too bad
See it if If you want to see a master class of acting from Eileen Atkins and Jonathan Pryce.
Don't see it if The subject of a parent’s death can be heart wrenching and, possibly, difficult for some.
See it if You’re a fan of Tennessee Williams and are interested in one of his lesser revived plays. And you’re a fan of the Roundabout performances
Don't see it if You’re not a fan of drama revivals, or T. Williams
Also Two words: Marisa Tomei is terrific as Serafina.
See it if OMG! You want to be thoroughly entertained, you want to laugh, versatile performances...and Annie Golden is gold!
Don't see it if I honestly can’t think of a single reason not to see this.
See it if If you like the movie, you’ll love this adaptation. Performances are particularly outstanding
Don't see it if You’re not into adaptations of beloved movies (although this would be a mistake)
See it if If you’re open to a variation on a classic. Energetic performances, fulfilling evening of theayre
Don't see it if You’re uncomfortable with Yiddish performances and are a “purist”
Also This was my second time! Liked it even better at this venue!
See it if You want to see a fun variation of Uncle Vanya. And to see Austin Pendleton
Don't see it if You revere the classics. Or have no patience. Act 1 a bit trying but act II makes up for it.
See it if You’d like to see excellent acting in a well written play. Two stars shine!
Don't see it if You’re only into light comedy or musicals. This IS theatre.
See it if You like fun musicals...Carl Reiner...New York nostalgia...support revivals of little known Broadway shows...energetic performers, good time
Don't see it if Expect all musicals to be big splashy overproduced behemoths.
See it if You like to revisit fun “old fashioned” musicals, this is the one to see. Fun from top to bottom!
Don't see it if If you’re a theatre “snob” stay away. I’m not, and I loved it!
See it if The subject of Hollywood blacklisting interests you. Absorbing subject. You appreciate a one-man tour-de-force.
Don't see it if You do not like one man shows with simple setting. Might be confusing if you know nothing about the blacklist and “Red Channels”
See it if Wildly entertaining revival of the Cole Porter classic. Kelly O’Hara! Just go!
Don't see it if I can honestly say that there should be no reservations about seeing this show
See it if Even if you know the story, this is an excellent, surprisingly engrossing production. Excellent performances all around. Stands on its own
Don't see it if Do not compare it to the movie! Racially intense. Rape subject. You know the book...you know what you’re in for.
See it if If you like to laugh...a lot, then run to see this! One of the funniest plays I’ve ever attended. Nothing deep or meaningful...GOOD! Fun****
Don't see it if If you’re a sourpuss, or too “above” this kind of stuff...stay away and let everyone else have a good time!
See it if If you like spectacle over content, this is for you. If you love the original Kong...stay away!
Don't see it if So many reasons not to see this. Music is dreadful...Book is dreadful. Acting is laughable.
See it if If you love good old fashioned musical comedy...this is the one for you! Doesn’t rely on special effects or old songs. Fresh and original.
Don't see it if If you’re someone who only goes to broadway for overblown spectacles...or Disney...or juke-box musicals, forget it.
See it if You’re interested in stories of reliving parents’s lives.
Don't see it if If you want a straight toward play.
Also Bottom line, for me was, the characters weren’t all that interesting.
See it if Ok. This is a tricky one. Obviously if you’re a devout Jew you “might” get more out of this than I did (BTW, I am Jewish)
Don't see it if If you have zero interested in the Talmud.
See it if You have an interest in WWII history, the German Olympics and what Jewish athletes had to endure just to compete for their country.
Don't see it if The above subject matter doesn’t interest you or if a 2 person show (mostly alternating monologues) isn’t your cup of tea.
See it if You’re a fan of Tracy Letts’ writing and you’re into serious drama about relationships. There are many laughs but this is dead serious
Don't see it if Not into relationship drama. Also, there is heavy nudity which some people when I went found disturbing.
See it if You enjoy new plays by new ambitious writers (at least new to me).
Don't see it if The subjects of death, wakes, fracking, cancer, hurricanes, Disney, Monopoly, frogs, etc. Then again...that’s life!
See it if You want to see ambitious on a small scale. Original music and fun dizzying plots.
Don't see it if If you expect musicals to be big overblown spectacles. Disney...this is not!
See it if You are interested in lesser known aspects of baseball and seeing a qualified woman break into the all boys club...and it’s a true story
Don't see it if If you have zero interest in baseball although the story supersedes the baseball theme and brings up other aspects of Tony’s story
See it if You like classic absorbing drama with great performances by Benning, Letz, er al. A must see! A true American classic
Don't see it if I can’t honestly think of any reason why anyone with an appreciable if great theatre should not see this
See it if You like “vaudeville” like entertainment A little bit of this...a little bit of that. Good, clean fun.
Don't see it if You’re expecting a circus extravaganza. No animals. Not overly ambitious but simple fun
See it if You love Shakespeare and Glenda Jackson
Don't see it if You’re looking to be “entertained”. 3 1/2 hrs. Very difficult sit. If you don’t know “Lear” you will be totally lost.
See it if I’m sorry. I can’t think of anything in this dreck to recommend. See it if you want to see talented performers wasted!
Don't see it if If you like the movie ....don’t see it!!!
See it if You want the opportunity to see a musical that never gets a revival and for some dazzling dancing.
Don't see it if You expect “prime” Rogers & Hart. Or even a cohesive book. Neither is here. A very rare disappointment from ENCORES.
See it if You like to see “rarely” produced classic musicals. Encores always pleases.
Don't see it if You’re expecting the “magic” of a musical designed specifically for the bombastic Ethel Merman.
See it if If you’re a girl between 10-20 and like over-produced spectacles then this is for you. But you’d better know the songs prior to going in.
Don't see it if Way over-produced to the point that the story actually gets in the way of the spectacle. Looks good...that’s about it for me!
See it if This was a wonderful surprise to me! It’s about “ snooker”. Really! Very funny with fun twists!
Don't see it if The title throws people. Doesn’t give any indication what it’s about (I do NOW). Not many negatives I can say about this.
See it if Anyone who appreciates great acting and great writing will enjoy this. The cast is teriffic...and Elaine May is a treasure!
Don't see it if If you’re uncomfortable with the subject matter (old age, Alzheimer’s) you may want to skip it...but you’d be missing out on a great evening
See it if Obviously, if you like magic you’ll have a great time! And bring the kids.
Don't see it if I was disappointed. While all the acts were good, they just didn’t seem to gel into a coherent whole
