See it if A melodrama made for tv. A story that goes many directions but does not stay focused.

See it if You don't know much of anything about our Civil Rights history
Don't see it if You are looking for a serious or modern play about race - this isn't it
See it if you want to see a well meaning theatrical presentation of an important time in our history. Great performances from most of the actors.
Don't see it if you are looking for a history play done with new ideas or creativity. It feels like a very good college production.
See it if you like documentary drama. There isn't much pulse to it, but there is lots of information. The actors outshone the script by a mile.
Don't see it if the Little Rock 9 isn't a part of history you care about. You like your plays to have focus and heart.
See it if you are interested in learning about this aspect of US history and the civil rights movement.
Don't see it if you want more than a history lesson. That sounds harsher than I mean. This is important US history, but there's no real dramatic conflict.
See it if history and musicals good individual actors
Don't see it if each individual actor is GREAT however they do not sync with each other. The story should have been great but was very repetitive.
