Ambitious, Clever, Great acting

See it if you enjoy Greek classics and how they still f*ing apply to our times.

Don't see it if you have a stick up your butt about modern adaptations of ancient works.

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.

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!!

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
