See it if You love to belly laugh and be silly for 90 minutes!
Don't see it if Fart and dick jokes are dumb to you. But maybe lighten up and just enjoy it for 90 minutes!
See it if You want biting dialogue on how to represent Muslims in the West today.
Don't see it if The whole play is two characters in a constant fight, which is tiring to watch and which makes it hard to absorb the real billboarded points
See it if You want to see a rarely produced classical play! Why see the same shows over and over?
Don't see it if You want to see a show with a plot you’re already familiar with. Classical stuff gives you the squirms.
See it if You want a break from non-realism. You’re looking for something mythic.
Don't see it if All you like is kitchen sink naturalism. You can’t follow an accent different than your own.
See it if You want to see some of the best ensemble acting in a reeeeally long time. You want to see Jez Butterworth’s work become even more sweeping.
Don't see it if You hate long plays, aren’t ready for a delicate, searing tale of heartbreak and loss.
See it if You like plays about people putting on plays. You're willing to listen and laugh at yourself.
Don't see it if You're hyper defensive about being politically correct.
See it if 1. You are a fan of the books. 2. You are a fan of inventive, creative staging.
Don't see it if You are a miser who hates having a fun time in the theater!
See it if Glenda Jackson is doing a very fine job. So are 80% of the other actors up there. Shakespeare on Broadway is a rare thing, support it!
Don't see it if You can't stand heightened text or sit still for a long time.
See it if You’re a Chekhov fan. You liked Stupid F-ing Bird and wanna see what Aaron Posner did next. You’re an Austin Pendelton fan.
Don't see it if Chekhov gives you the willies.
See it if You like splash without substance and imagery without anything significant to say behind it.
Don't see it if You want something behind the absurdity to hold it up. As it is, this play is floundering and I'm shocked Soho Rep picked it for the season.
