Overrated, Tiresome

See it if you want to catch an acceptable production that won't put a dent in your wallet, or if you just need a Williams fix of poetic dialogue.

Don't see it if If you've already seen it a few times -- nothing really new here that's worth a trek into the bowels of the East Village.

Great score and lighting, Atmospheric, Absorbing, Ambitious, Intelligent

See it if You’re up for a solid, well cast, altogether reasonable production, streamlined yet faithful to Williams. Fine set, costumes score and light

"The play is acted at a sloth's pace in a dimly lit…dully realistic way, with very little of the poetically magical qualities we expect from this play about emotional memory…The…production is so grounded in standard realism that the play seems more like William Inge than Tennessee Williams."
