Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Good writing, Resonant

See it if Bioh's NYC writing debut a robust crowd pleaser Funny, sharp look at Nigerian film industry, urban African society & human nature in one act

Don't see it if Accents pose a little problem (esp in rapid conversation) Outstanding ensemble with an edge to Oprah-esque Sowunmi or lazy sister Mensah

Entertaining, Funny

See it if sassy, quick wit and a fast pace with over the top acting done well is what you're looking for.

Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Hilarious, Exciting

See it if you want to see some truly smart comedy writing centered in reality and not absurdity, and some REALLY great performances.

Don't see it if you're expecting an "issue" play. This is a comedy (and a really good one).
