Ambitious, Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if Too many scene changes and the focus of the story is rather unclear makes this play confusing & too long. The only standout is Zack Rickert.

Don't see it if There are men kissing, a wheelchair, a Melissa McCarthy impersonation and a brother who writes poetry but not gay. The word is ambitious.

Resonant, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Emotional, Vietnam era message

See it if shows like Vietnam War "Sticks and Bones" and "Streamers" with their gay, disabled, family, & race themes (of the 70's era) are for you.

Don't see it if you expect something with brand new perspectives, or don't like to be reminded of Vietnam.

Great acting, Intense, Funny, Great staging, Profound

See it if You enjoy period plays that have modern day relevance. If you can find humor in dark places. If you like good family dramas. And the F word.

Don't see it if You’re not comfortable with topics such as homosexuality, drugs (marijuana mostly), sex, vulgar language and death.

Entertaining, Slow, Emotional
