See it if you like an interesting staging of someone's life. The acting except for role of sheriff was good. Some moving moments with parents.
Don't see it if you want a fully developed story about Billy's life. Program says 90 minutes but show under an hour.
See it if like a well-acted play, short in duration. Or a historical piece with only a vague connection to actual events. It is an introspective piece
Don't see it if you need action. This is an introspective piece and not meant to be taken on any realistic plane.
See it if you have time to kill ...& willing to sit on a slow play that can put you to sleep - as the dialogues & sunset stage lights set that mood.
Don't see it if you actually want to enjoy and learn more about Billy in an interesting way. The staging, lighting, costume and cast were promising though.
See it if You're looking to see something new, avant garde, and with a fresh take on a well known subject.
Don't see it if You want something more conventional; the play is a little confusing.
See it if you like the topic of Billy the Kid and want to see a story showing different aspects of this historic time.
Don't see it if you prefer modern or linear stories.
See it if you have to see every play ever written about Billy the Kid, curious about how the church will have an easy time using this set for service
Don't see it if you don't like repetitive dialogue with little actual & often contradictory content, want to learn about the outlaw, need action & character
See it if You know someone associated w/the production. You're fascinated by Billy the Kid & want to see everything about him.
Don't see it if You want any illumination of Billy. You want life-lile characters that go beyond cliche. You value quality playwriting.
See it if Plodding fantasy of Billy the Kid with the ghosts of his parents and a made-up friendship with Sheriff Pat Garrett. Good acting, though.
Don't see it if First preview -- the actors expertly delivered some good dialogue that -- strung together -- did not make a play.
See it if you are interested in Billy the Kid and the memory of the people in his life and the effect they had on him.
Don't see it if you don't like memory plays with actual living characters that are distorted or drawn from the author's imagination.
See it if You want to see a new play with the substance of a very good play. It had all the elements I hoped for when I read the description.
Don't see it if Poor stage instructions by the author and poor direction make the production difficult to enjoy. Dooling is less than than engaging
See it if you want one hour to feel like three. Perhaps I just didn't get it, but Billy the Kid philosophizing with ghosts just didn't work for me.
Don't see it if You want a play with an understandable plot. I got where it ended up, but it took a very convoluted and incomprehensible path to get there.
See it if you'd enjoy seeing some good young actors perform on an interesting set.
Don't see it if you know anything at all about the life of Billy the Kid; dislike "talky" plays; like realistic dialogue; like some semblance of a plot.
See it if you Must! From the title to the end the show was just slow and boring. Some actors were good, but their lines were just bad. Don't see it!
Don't see it if you have respect for Bruce Willis. He must of lost of bet or was drunk when he read the script. This was not a good show.
