Clever, Relevant, Great writing

See it if The cast does a fine job in this play which is the star of the show. With some editing & character/story development, this has potential.

Don't see it if I think this play should have two acts and it wouldn't hurt to add more stage time to develop the story and characters. A MUST SEE!

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Well acted, Long, Unconvincing plot

See it if you like family dramas.TBM deals w homophobia, race, infertility, immigrn, wealth gap. Chars are uneven, as is the tone. Stakes get too high

Don't see it if you want a believable plot. But portrayal of deep-seated anti-gay prejud is well presented, then rejected. Loving cousin can be a monster.

Don't see it if You want a play less about now. And more balanced script, acting, direction.

Also The characters spend a lot of time taking about the past and character... Read more Read less
