'Terms of Endearment' traces the complicated relationship between a challenging mother, Aurora Greenway (Ringwald), and her equally stubborn daughter, Emma. A funny and heartbreaking story about love in the face of life's challenges, both large and small, this show examines the delicate and sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both new and old.
See it if You loved the movie of the same name as it holds true to the movie. You like mother daughter stories and tear jerkers.
Don't see it if You hate tear jerkers or stories based on female leads. You hated the movie or you want to see a big comedy or musical.
See it if you like a cast of very talented actors who are very great, with not the greatest script/adaptation that makes dialogue sound phony/forced
Don't see it if you want a very fast-paced and well written play or a high budget set.
See it if You want a nice night out, off the beaten path, in a great theater space.
Don't see it if You love the film. Compressing a richly textured, vibrant film and book into a small and static space just didn't feel right.
See it if You love Molly Ringwald or want to see Jeb Brown pretty much impersonate Nicholson.
Don't see it if You don't enjoy shows about dysfunctional famiies or shows that need multiple very short scenes to get the story told.
See it if you like Molly Ringwald. I believe she reaches a career best as Aurora; poignant, human, and just incredible, specially towards the end
Don't see it if if you have a problem with more intimate and less "showy" plays
Also The chemistry between Molly and Jeb Brown (Garrett) is great
See it if I saw the movie so many times so I probably was expecting it to be exactly the same and it wasn't. It was enjoyable and I loved seeing molly
Don't see it if If you expect it to be an exact replica of the movie. Just watch the movie.
