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 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 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'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 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 want to know more about the personal life and family of Billy the Kid in a show performed by a very good cast with a nice stage setting.
Don't see it if You're expecting a play with a good plot. This show is slow moving, excessively talky, and confusing. It's difficult to sustain interest.
See it if You like shows with a historical basis, nonlinear script, committed acting
Don't see it if Like linear stories, need big sets, are unfamiliar with the Billy the Kid history
See it if you want proof that Bruce Willis supports the work of his friends regardless of the quality of that work
Don't see it if you value a fully thought-out script and story line
Also I wanted to like this, but it was just bad
