Funny, Thought-provoking, Must see, Relevant, Great writing

See it if you like theater...terrific play. Saw the Julliard production (2016). Wonderful cast...but it's the play that's the winner.

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

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.

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You like plays that are loud and debaucherous and twisted.

Don't see it if You are into more classical shows.
