Wives
Midtown W
Resonant, Great writing, Clever, Funny

See it if You're interested in history re-tellings, but don't get hung up on details. The language is modern, but I loved that.

Don't see it if You're looking for something slow or in depth. It's 4 different stories in 80 minutes, but they all tie together beautifully.

Great staging, Boring, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You're already a fan of the playwright or either actor.

Don't see it if You're looking for an engaging okay. It's well structured and interesting in theory, but I just found it tedious.
