See it if you want a feminist show on feminist issues.

Don't see it if if you want a true funny play. jokes fall on a thud. it is not linear, it is choppy and all over the place.

Very entertaining, Great set / clever video-screen use, Excellent ensemble / serious & quirky, Absorbing / compelling / emotional, Well-written / humorous / diverse / relevant

See it if you want to experience a relevant well-written serio-comedy, supported by a strong cast, some of whom play multiple roles.

Don't see it if there's even a drop of misogyny in you. It's all women here, & the only male character turns out to be trouble for the new company.

Also Great black-box theater experience.... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You want a compelling plot. Theres very little plot. Many jokes fall flat, very gimmicky.

See it if You are interested in a play that deals with harassment in a sensitive way. Very relevant.

See it if you know someone involved.

Don't see it if you want a well balanced script. The drama and comedy don't balance each other out.

Starts off a bit slow, and there are some mildly unnec...
