See it if you're up for a 2-hour character study, with some characters being better fleshed out than others.
Don't see it if you have high expectations in the plot department. The most interesting bits are in the backstories of these characters.
See it if you want to see a fine group of triple-threats (actor/singer/musicians) in a smart, original musical.
Don't see it if you require your musicals to be big-budget affairs. This one is not, but it certainly could be.
See it if you've never heard of Gloria Steinem and would like to get the bullet points.
Don't see it if you're willing to wait for the film or miniseries. Either of these would be much more befitting to the GS story.
See it if you're curious about Ezra Pound. I knew nothing about him, and was quite intrigued.
Don't see it if you are expecting a 'finished' piece. Unfortunately, this appears to be a work in progress.
See it if you're a fan of musicals. There's some good material here and it's presented with heart.
Don't see it if you're hoping to have a fervent emotional experience. This is entertaining but not electrifying.
See it if you're willing to sit through a missed opportunity. The play starts off with such promise and loses engine thrust.
Don't see it if you're not willing to accept drawbacks, i.e., casting choices, nonlinear storytelling, etc.
See it if you're a fan of Rebeck's plays and don't mind that this is not her best work.
Don't see it if if you're expecting much more than a protracted (2.5 hour) character study. What it lacks in plot is supplanted by McTeer's performance.
See it if you want to see an excellent performance by Kristine Nielsen.
Don't see it if you're attending just because it's by Tennessee Williams. You're better off reading his short stories.
See it if you'd like to see an engaging ensemble perform a winning interpretation of a Chekhov classic in an intimate venue.
Don't see it if you plan to rummage through a paper bag throughout the entire performance. (The woman behind me did just that!)
See it if you don't mind sitting through a weak aperitif and a bland appetizer to get to your main course.
Don't see it if you'd rather invest your time in a cohesive theatrical outing.
See it if you've earned a good time for yourself. I haven't grinned this much in one sitting since 'Honeymoon in Vegas' a few seasons back.
Don't see it if you can't appreciate a new, old-fashioned musical.
See it if you are open to an interesting concept. It's described as a 'theatrical collage' and that is exactly what you get.
Don't see it if you're put off by collages. They can be a bit abstract and ambiguous but usually contain some wonderful elements.
See it if you have some idea of what you're walking into. The 'fourth wall' is not broken, it's simply not there.
Don't see it if you're a conservative type who might be squeamish. The inmates are running the asylum here.
See it if you're patient and forgiving. The material is there, but it seems as though the production team didn't realize it.
Don't see it if you're expecting anything more than mediocrity.
See it if you want to unwind and revisit or perhaps stumble upon some oldies but goodies passionately performed by fabulous entertainers. See it!
Don't see it if you have no appreciation for classic pop songs. Even that's a stretch because 'don't see it' really doesn't apply here! Seriously, see it!
See it if you're staying at the Marriott Marquis Hotel and don't want to venture out in the heatwave this weekend to catch a better show.
Don't see it if you can see better theater, which you can.
See it if all of the other holiday-themed shows are sold out through the end of 2018.
Don't see it if you're expecting this one to align with the York Theatre's typically high caliber of stage offerings.
See it if you want to be transported by a moving (true) story and exceptional singing.
Don't see it if you'd rather miss out on a limited engagement of a powerful, heartwarming theater piece.
See it if you want to feel what it's really like to 'eat, drink and be merry' all in one sitting!
Don't see it if you have a reluctance towards exceptional theater and delicious gourmet treats.
See it if you are going for the performances. The script is a bit of an endurance test.
Don't see it if you're expecting a comedy. Even though it is billed as such, there aren't many laughs in store.
See it if you want to see an excellent ensemble do justice to a simple yet well-crafted premise.
Don't see it if you're not accustomed to 'downtown' theater. This reminded me of Adam Rapp's work.
See it if you'd like to get a sampling of A.R. Gurney. He will certainly entertain you.
Don't see it if you like equilibrium in your comedy. His is a hybrid of sit-com, absurdist, high-brow and low-brow.
See it if you're up for something fresh. At each performance, the end of this play is determined partially by chance in spite of meticulous plotting.
Don't see it if you're not a fan of comedy with a sprinkling of thrills & a couple of twists.
See it if you'd like to leave the theater humming tunes from the show. (How often does that happen these days?!?)
Don't see it if you've lost your taste for old-school musical theater. This is definitely a throwback, but in a most endearing way.
See it if you're up for something light. This is definitely a low-calorie snack.
Don't see it if you need substance in your musical theater diet. You'll need to satisfy your cravings elsewhere.
See it if you want to see an epic-style musical on a budget.
Don't see it if you're expectations are high. I think the potential for this show is quite good, but it's not yet fully-realized here.
See it if you'd like to see/hear a talented ensemble. The actors are fine singers and musicians as well.
Don't see it if bluegrass music is not for you. It's not the kind of music you hear in a theater very often.
See it if you have appreciation for a well-crafted, innovative spin on a classic. This one TRULY has soul.
Don't see it if you prefer a jukebox musical. (Btw, the supertitles are projected, not backlit, so they are quite easy on the eyes.)
See it if you've ever enjoyed watching a lava lamp while listening to music.
Don't see it if you have no tolerance for the avant-garde. Note: While they are referred to as 'puppets', they really are 'forms' in essence.
