Entertaining, Cliched, Fluffy, Sweet, Romantic

See it if you like sweet and sappy. It's totally a Hallmark movie. But there's a place for that and this is nicely done. Be in the mood for light.

Don't see it if You don't like cliche and Hallmark-y.

Absorbing, Clever, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy a story where two love stories intertwine, one present and one past. That one couple is straight and one is gay makes it work.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy any story about a gay couple. You see two love stories come alive and you feel for both.

Lovely staging, Thoughtful, Romantic and charming, Endearing, Good concept

See it if Like a captivating play with small, nicely directed cast. It's just shy of treacly but has resonance and some truly beautiful moments.

Don't see it if No interest in love stories of young couples or want something deep. This is a nice drama with touching bits, but has its flaws. Read more

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You want to see a beautiful small play that deals with love straight and gay.

Don't see it if You are averse to gay elements in a drama. Actually perhaps you should see this, it might open your eyes. Like "Love Story" for today.

Competent acting, Slow, Superficial characters, Excessive sentimentality, Admirable message

See it if you favor shows that foster positive messages about "gay" people and human interrelationships in general.

Don't see it if you dislike excessive sentimentality and superficial character analysis.

Theatermania
June 28th, 2017

"One of 'Sonder's' triumphs is that it delivers sentiment without getting stuck in sentimentality...All the characters, in fact, are endearing, thanks largely to the actors who inhabit them...The actors give these characters life, but the script gives them something more. Moldovan's play transcends realism by populating the same space with characters from different times...For all its merits, 'Sonder' isn't perfect, but its digressions into implausibility are outshined by what it gets right."
