Dark, edgy, interesting, so-so voices

See it if you want to see the story again and it is presented in an interesting way

Don't see it if you want great choreography or fabulous singing voices, but it is an interesting show for the dark side

Fabulous, Great staging, Clever, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if Excellent acting & stagecrat combined with the wonderful language of Wm Shakespeare. don't be daunted by the small cast

Energetically & well acted

See it if you want to see some very good acting which is paired with very effective and frequently changing lighting and an interest backdrop

Don't see it if you don't want a one man show, but frankly he does a great job of portraying many characters, so it hardly seems like a one man show.

Exquisite, Entertaining, Great singing, Beautiful bizet

See it if you want to hear the music of Bizet's Carmen , different English lyrics exquisitely sung up close

Don't see it if you don't like Carmen, but frankly it's better music than many recent musicals

Also Why hasn't there been a major revival here since it was created in WW ... Read more Read less

Interesting but long

See it if you like to see Denzel, but frankly others were more interesting Hey Bill Irwin had a part

Don't see it if you saw Jason Robards like I did years ago, haven't seen anyone who can hold a candle to his performance

Great choreography

See it if the choreography was very interesting, makes me want to see a tape of the original to see what Justin has done in comparison

The lead was great, he was the show

Interesting, but probably preferred the movie

See it if you want to see some creative set work & decent acting of the story

Don't see it if you expect an expansion upon what you saw before in the movie

Still needs work, interesting concept

See it if you want a finished product, the sound need adjusting, as did the dialogue, interesting to play several characters,

Don't see it if don't like activist theater, also need to differentiate the characters better ie have a different prop as change person, voice didn't always

Also do it well enough... Read more Read less

Great acting, Why hillary lost in 2016, Entertaining

See it if you want to see some good acting & be reminded of the mistakes of the 2016 & hopefully not the 2020 campaign

Don't see it if it too painful or you don't want to acknowledge the flaws of the democrats

74
Dated, but interesting

See it if you want to see how an Obie winning play holds up 40 years later

Don't see it if you'll be upset by some miscasting, or you don't want to compre how times have changed

87
Thought-provoking, Interesting, intelligent, profound, relevant

See it if you want to learn more about Werner Von Braun and be entertained while also thinking

Absorbing, Great acting, Interesting

See it if you want see a great actress and to be reminded of the mood with the birmingham church bombings

Don't see it if you are frustrated by the frustrations of a great woman behind a good man

57
Or more much ado about nothing

See it if you've never done one of these follow arounds before

Don't see it if you have, unless you get very cheap tickets

Also it really isn't vey special once you've seen some others of this ilk

82
For a previous production
It exceded expectations

See it if you want to laugh continuously see a much funnier noises off

Don't see it if you can't laugh at pratfalls

Also I was expecting the repetition of Noises off, but instead it was fresh... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you don't like theater in the almost round

Talky, in the round, okay

See it if interesting reveals, but then you figure it out you like to be close to the actors

Don't see it if ou want action not just talking

Don't see it if you want to be left feeling Joseph Papp was a nice guy (But kuddos are due him for his role in the Public being established)

See it if you like high energy percussion that is well done

Don't see it if you want much more than percussion

91
Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if you want to see Billy Crudup do a great job in a one man show. Also note the fabulous lighting job

Don't see it if you are looking for an elaborate set, it's a chair on decking, but the lighting & Billy's acting takes you many places

71
Original was better

See it if butterfly sang beautifully, clive is nice to see, but show fell flat

Don't see it if you expect Julie Taymor to have created something great, she did not & the set sucked

67
Banal, Same old same old, weak work of the author

See it if you just have to see a bashing that isn't offering anything new

Don't see it if you aren't seated dead center, the side seats which are usually fine in this theater don't let you see the projections

Also due to a stupid configuration of the set many in the audience won't se... Read more Read less

2 leads came late to their roles, but were amazing!!, Edgy

See it if you want to see some great acting, can'rt imagine that the originally cast would have been anywhere near as good

Don't see it if you don't want to see guys in prison & some raw emotions

77
Cute enough, not outstanding

See it if you like happy endings & singing about problems The dancing of Christopher Fitzgerald is worth the price of admission alone

Don't see it if you don't like a sappy story

Entertaining, Clever, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you want to see a one person show as it should be, John plays many characters and each is clearly a different character

Don't see it if you don't want to laugh like crazy while also being given some things to think about. The ending is excellent & profound

Also I have been a fan of John Leguizamo since I first saw him live in 2001... Read more Read less
