Intense, Banal, Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if A conventional if uninspired tale of blood & brothers buried under the sledgehammer direction of Moresco. Mickiewicz emerges as least bloody

Don't see it if A priest's blessing at the play's onset is the last moment of serenity in this loud, toxic, agitated dysfunctional drama a la Miller & Mamet

Intense, Great staging, Great acting, Edgy

See it if you want to see an interesting story of family relationships unfold. Some of the past events were a bit confusing.

Don't see it if you don't want to hear actors screaming at each other -- a lot of yelling, as the whole play was presented at a fever pitch.

Intense, Raunchy, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you enjoy seeing blue collar families work through their issues in their own way, you enjoy seeing the pain of family secrets

Don't see it if you don't like witnessing anger and loud voices, you want a comedy

91
Absorbing, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting

See it if You enjoy family drama. The actors do a great job bringing the story to light

Don't see it if You enjoy only musicals and comedies.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Slow, Resonant, Dated

See it if you like old-fashioned, straightforward dramas; you're a fan of someone in the cast (breakout work by Alex Mickiewicz!).

Don't see it if you don't want to see another play about white men. The script is very traditional; don't go expecting anything new or fresh.

Absorbing, Great acting

Don't see it if You don't like dark plays and raw conflict
