“The stereotypes are deliberately clownish, and the playwright has fun with them…Despite the deliberate stereotyping, the depiction of Joe and Jose does not cause offense, in part because specific biographical details in the script and the two actors’ anchored performances turn them into credible characters, and in part because 'Neighbors' gives us solid if amusing insight into what feels like some genuine cultural differences between the two nationalities.” Full Review
"Cubría’s premise is an imaginative and timely examination of class, ethnicity and U.S. hegemony. It’s sustained by well-crafted jokes melded with seriousness, earthy and fierce dialogue, culminating in a ridiculous and chilling denouement...Rodriguez and Blair have a tremendous and palpable chemistry...Director Moreno’s staging emulates the fast pacing and surreal qualities of vintage Warner Brothers cartoons, yet the antics recede to emphasize the sensitive aspects of the play."

See it if Sharply written and performed satire about the relationship between an American man and a Mexican man. Creative and funny.
Don't see it if Avoid if you will be offended by stereotypes or harsh language. Some over-the-top physical humor.

See it if you want to see a fun comedy, unambitious and though not very profound, yet relevant.
Don't see it if you expect great production values (although) there is a pool and it rains onstage... or if you want to see some deep, intellectual work.
See it if You enjoy comedy with political undertones. Dealt with serious racial issues and stereotypes in a humorous way. Enjoyed it a lot
Don't see it if You are easily offended when dealing with stereotypes
See it if you enjoy clever use of stage to divide the haves and have nots, Mexican (or any immigrant) and "Gringos"; implied and specific race issues.
Don't see it if you are easily offended by coarse language, racial slurs, and stereotypes. Although it descends into a food fight, the issues are genuine.

Don't see it if You're not in the mood for mild political commentary and a humorous take on racial stereotyping.

See it if You want to see a play about neighbors and their differences. You want to see what happens when they come together in a business venture.

See it if you're interested in a clever, easily digestible look at the relationship between the US and Mexico that manages to remain fairly complex.
