Ambitious, Entertaining, Indulgent, Smug, Immature

See it if You like re-imagingings of classic plays. You want to support a young theatre company.

Don't see it if You want a re-imaginging w/out commentary or trigger warnings about what has happened or will do. You want a more fully developed company.

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if You want to see a modern version of the classic in a treatment SO applicably current. Creon's tie needs another 6 inches in length!!

Don't see it if You are a true classicist with no sense of humor or you simply supported the current POTUS.

Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Clever, Resonant

See it if ancient Greek tragedy absorbs you and a well produced modern adaptation, true to the original plot, intrigues, amuses and moves you.

Don't see it if you prefer comedies or musicals, cannot sit through a 90 minute performance without intermission or cannot appreciate the horror of hubris.

Clever, Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Riveting

See it if You want to see an incredible story almost 2500 years old, but without the distracting trappings of language/costumes of a bygone era.

Don't see it if You have trouble taking teenagers seriously. You expect a comedy: after a few jokes at the beginning about high school, it plays as tragedy

Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Resonant

See it if you want to see a classic Greek tragedy brought to vibrant life by a talented ensemble. I was awed by both the scholarship and acting.

Don't see it if you only like big box theater

83
Absorbing, Entertaining, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You need to be reminded that the Greeks knew a thing or two about human behavior and politics, psyche and society; terrific writing, acting.

Don't see it if You object to modernization of ancient text leaving no doubt of its relevance today with sincere acting, updated production on a shoestring.

78
Delightful, Resonant, Fun

See it if a good somewhat modern day interpretation; well acted

Don't see it if you don't want to see a twenty-something take on this classic

49
Disappointing, Banal, Boring, For high school audience

See it if You want to see an amateurish production of a classic Greek play which has dialogue a teenager would say.

Don't see it if You're expecting a mature interpretation of this classic Greek tragedy or if profanity offends you. I was greatly disappointed.
