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

Solid performances, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if Overall a top notch theater experience. Talented performers who work well together. A tale well told.

Don't see it if Show involves issues of racisms, religion, government graft, inequity, religion. Perhaps too uncomfortable for some viewers.
