See it if if there's another great NYC revival like this one. Sadly, I'm writing this after the Signature Theater production has closed.
Don't see it if you prefer plot over character. This being said, sometimes eccentric personalities hold your attention better than storylines.
See it if you're up for a very clever telling of the story of a man who used his talents in diametric opposition.
Don't see it if you expect to have a takeaway. Even though the piece touches upon some extremely interesting ideas, there is ultimately no ethical closure.
See it if you are a Tom Stoppard fan or enjoy mental gymnastics. It would be good to have a knowledge of what you're in for before sitting down.
Don't see it if you're not up to the task. Not a passive evening. History, literature and art are disseminated ad nauseum. Happily, no post-show quiz.
See it if you're able to catch Randy at a venue near you. (I'm writing this after having seen the penultimate NY performance.)
Don't see it if you're freaked out by puppets. Randy is irrepressible.
See it if you'd like to get an overview of this group of students who were caught in the crossfire of politics and social injustice.
Don't see it if you crave some deeper insight about what happened. The subject matter is worthy of a better script.
See it if you are awed by this ancient art. Vitaly's show has a traditional feel, but his repertoire is absolutely outstanding.
Don't see it if you're just too damn jaded for some fine legerdemain!
See it if you're a fan of the marvelous Mint Theater Company productions. If this is your first time, you'll have a memorable initiation.
Don't see it if you have no appreciation for period pieces. (Even so, you just might be won over!)
See it if you want to see an older play with little production value.
Don't see it if you like to see how/where the money is spent. This is an Off-Broadway production on a Broadway stage.
See it if you like farce. This is not an easy genre to write (or adapt in this case), and David Ives has done it well.
Don't see it if you're unwilling to resign yourself to a silly evening at the theater. Contemporary references in an old play can be fun.
See it if you are a Lucy Thurber fan. I've seen just about all of her plays and this is her best.
Don't see it if you can't appreciate a well-crafted play with a terrific cast.
Also It's got less than a week to go! Grab a ticket!.
