Don't see it if you want a riveting plot with a strong story arc
See it if you need a nap.
Don't see it if you care about plot, structure, etc. The play is someone dictating a play to a secretary. Punctuation and all. Sooo slow.

Don't see it if you like linear theatre. I liked the first two acts and then the monologue at the end, but the third act was just too weird.
