Ambitious, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You enjoy supporting small local theater

Don't see it if You are looking to see professionals. The leads overacted and the chief monologues were overdone.

During previews
Great writing, Disappointing, Ambitious, Uneven acting, Great lighting

See it if , like me you've somehow managed to make it all these years without ever seeing the play or the movie. Well written play not done very well.

Don't see it if You want a good play. There are good PARTS of this, (lighting, some of the actors) but overall it would be hard to recommend.

During previews
Over acted, Disappointing, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if Youre dying to see the play ('63) based on the novel ('62) right now-otherwise wait for better production. V forced; where was the reality?

Don't see it if Entire cast over-acts (even small parts) which speaks to direction; uncomfortable to watch. U just want 2 advise "Stop" & actually BE them~
