Don't see it if you don't care about race/class issues, you don't like plays in which playwright has something interesting to say but it gets muddled
See it if you're interested in the TV writing world. Or in the Hispanic experience. There are important issues exposed, but not fully addressed.

Don't see it if You want a well-acted or polished show, since this was repetitive, boring, poorly acted, and just under 2 hours with no intermission.
