Don't see it if you are sick of #metoo crap and miss the good old days and Leave It To Beaver. Meanwhile SNL has a singer with slutty open blouse !
See it if Steinem’s had an interesting life, and Lahti plays her effectively, but the piece lacks tension and is devoid of a dramatic arc.

Don't see it if You want a play, rather than a lecture/history. In last half hour there's a "talk circle" where you praise what moved you in the play! Ick.
