Intelligent, Great acting, Exquisite, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy wonderful writing and people falling into and out of love. if you enjoy a human story of repressed sex & sexuality.

Don't see it if you can't deal with America in the 60's and the plight of women & people of color.

Great acting, Overrated, Indulgent, Great staging, Disappointing

See it if you have 100 minutes you don't mind losing & you really like Nathan Lane. The 3 cast mates work hard to sell this senseless play.

Don't see it if You are expecting an actual follow up to Titus Andronicus. It's a sequel to Titus like Rosenkrantz & Guildenstern are Dead is a sequel.
