Brac didn't appeal to me, but everyone else seemed to love it (including the pulitzer committee)

See it if you love slightly-heightened kitchen sink, dysfunctional family dramedies. BRAC is populated w lots of eccentrics and overflows w conflict.

Don't see it if you want real cohension and coherence. I found certain plotlines hard to believe. The acting was good, given the material. Impressive set. Read more

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You like Stephen Adly Guirgis, or just great writing. He’s put out 3 great shows in the past few years, and each one has a life of it’s own.

Don't see it if don’t want purely “funny” or “dramatic” shows. The playwright pulls laughs out of discomfort, and sorrow out of comedy. Purely compelling. Read more
