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.

Absorbing, Delightful, Great staging, Romantic, Lovely

Romantic, Sweet, Touching, Heartfelt, Quirky

See it if you can appreciate a moving story of how a straight couple sees parallels in their life with a gay couple whose diaries they find.

Don't see it if you want high production values or stellar acting skills. The whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts in this play.

Enchanting, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if If you can be patient with this slow drama, the last 15 minutes rewards with a satisfying conclusion to much of the puzzling build-up.

Don't see it if This isn't a big, bold drama, but very nice quiet, personal story with some insightful observations about ordinary people.

Touching, poignant, sentimental, charming

See it if you want to see a nice story about a young couple exploring and getting absorbed in the lives of the previous owners through diaries.

Don't see it if you don't like stories that involve 2 couples that don't actually meet interacting on stage side by side.

"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."
