Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

Don't see it if you do not like great drama, or if you can't run to the bathroom at the two 10-minute intermissions. The theater sticks to the time limit. Read more

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Riveting

See it if a great masterwork by one of America's greatest playwrights. it delves into the dark depths of people's lives.

Don't see it if a very long play populated by unpleasant people who drink whiskey nonstop. there is no happy ending, only a dark corner to hide in.

See it if you want to get slowly pulled into a story that piece by piece pulls you into a depiction of human and societal tragedy.
