Ambitious, Clever, Great acting, Indulgent, Slow

See it if you want to see Denzel at one of this finest shows. When he finally appeared, the stage lit up in his bold presence.

Don't see it if you don't like long shows with a slow beginning or too many characters to keep track of.

Absorbing, Funny, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Riveting

See it if you want to see a beautifully written play about how 3 brothers who are affected by white privilege.

Don't see it if you're not interested in straight white men in modern America, gender diversity, family drama.

Also There's a lot of layers to this story. The way in unfolded at the end ... Read more Read less

Clever, Thought-provoking, Refreshing

See it if you're a fan of Anna Chlumsky and Adam Pally. Also, if you're curious about how small towns go through gentrification.

Don't see it if If you're easily offended by racial slurs. The leads are a bit off-putting, but that's how their characters are—two dysfunctional 30 y/os.

Entertaining, Confusing, Dizzying, Raunchy, Intense

See it if you like seeing abs.

Don't see it if you have a hard time understanding British slang. Honestly, if I didn't watch the movie, I wouldn't have understood ANYTHING.

Also I prefer the movie A LOT more than this live-action play. What I liked... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great staging, Slow, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you want to see a slow-burning English drama with Elizabeth McGovern.

Don't see it if you don't like watching a period piece about dysfunctional family coming into terms with themselves. This show isn't upbeat or flashy.

Also I really love the poignant themes each character portrayed. The transi... Read more Read less

See it if like Uma Thurman or Phillipa Soo. Fast-paced, political dramas.

Don't see it if you like Trump. Story isn't too deep.

Also In the beginning, the dialogue was a bit too fast for my liking, but I... Read more Read less

Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Imaginative, Energetic

See it if you're a fan of Evanna Lynch and Irish plays.

Don't see it if you are off put by heavy slang in the Irish dialect, minimal staging, and disco music.

Also I was really impressed by the energy both Evanna and Colin put out on ... Read more Read less

During previews
Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow, Insipid

See it if you like John Lithgow and want to "watch" an audio book.

Don't see it if you expect to see John Lithgow. The story itself was so BORING that I left during intermission. This is the first show that I ever left. :(

Also Unfortunately, I saw quite a number of other people leaving during int... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Funny, Indulgent, Honest, Clever

See it if you like a dramedy with a bunch of well known actors. The actors are definitely over the top!

Don't see it if you don't like seeing star-studded casts, LGBTQ themed shows, or self-loathing characters.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Great singing, Great acting, Masterful

See it if you want to see Mark Rylance in a period drama and want to be enchanted by Iestyn's voice.

Don't see it if you don't like watching historical drama and opera.

Also Iestyn Davies' voice is truly enchanting. It's like staring into a can... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Enchanting, Funny, Quirky, Great acting

See it if you want to a slightly darker and relevant version of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

Don't see it if expect an elaborate staging. The set is very minimal. You really have to use 'pure imagination' to envision the story that everyone loves.

Also Honestly though, what in the world were they thinking about the stagin... Read more Read less

See it if you want to have your mind open about the LGBTQ community—especially with great actors who match their gender/sexual identity in real life.

Also Hope this show comes back at a bigger stage! The cast was amazing!

Entertaining, Funny, Epic, Must see, Great staging

See it if love elaborate staging and big flashy musical numbers written by famous artists. Expect something lighthearted and quirky for children.

Don't see it if don't like Spongebob or if you can't get over the fact that there's an actual musical based on a sponge. Don't expect a serious drama.

Also At first, I was reluctant about seeing this show because really... a m... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Riveting

See it if you like a slow, riveting drama. Amazing acting! I was on the edge of my seat in the second act. It's a very serious play.

Don't see it if you like fast and flashy plays. If you don't like stories about elderly characters, then don't see it.

Also The way the story unfolded was brilliantly written—especially with its... Read more Read less
