See it if You want to see an entertaining and thought provoking play. Brandon-Jacobs is an amazing playwright.
Don't see it if You want something light and don't want to have to think about what you are seeing.

Don't see it if are uncomfortable with dysfunctional families of racial themes...or if you only like musicals. Otherwise...see it!
