Cliched, Entertaining, Raunchy, Funny

See it if The idea of a very funny play with raunchy over-the-top black female characters appeals to you.

Don't see it if You're offended by fun being poked at black stereotypes or by explicit talk about sex.

Delightful, Clever, Great writing, Great acting, Funny

Funny, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Slow

See it if you'd enjoy seeing two strong acting performances in a spare setting

During previews
Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if A well-played two-hander (with three characters) about an Iraq war widow's relationship with her husband and his brother sounds intriguing.

Don't see it if You're easily confused -- not that flashbacks or one actor playing twins are exactly unheard of in English theater.
