See it if the basic premise is enough for you.
Don't see it if you prefer (for the main role) more than one-note acting and a logical approach to his Want; even insanity needs to be believable!
See it if you want to see a show/concept that is relevant to the current political atmosphere (and have a tolerance for uncomfortable theaters).
Don't see it if you get overheated easily. No A/C in the building and a lot of bodies packed into a small space. Also if you're not interested in politics.
“Some of the jokes land nicely, especially the pop-culture references, and Bouillion handles his millennial-Mamet dialogue well. But Leslie’s rashness and aggression seem weakly motivated…‘The Princemaker’ has an interesting premise that would benefit from greater psychological depth. For now, at least, it doesn’t get my vote.”
“The cat-and-mouse dialogue is witty, but what is most interesting is not knowing who is the cat and who is the mouse in each scene...It is unclear why George keeps showing up at Les's home and continues accepting his money despite his unpredictable threats and narcissistic behavior. The plot then takes a downward turn...The performances of both Bouillion and Seward are strong, the direction by Alessandra Affinito is well-executed...For those looking for political drama, it's a good choice.”
"'The Princemaker' offers characters that come across as surprisingly one-note, a fault accredited to both text and actor...In this 'House of Cards' fan fiction, it feels like the playwright has tried to turn a thesis into a play, armed with theory from Machiavelli to Kantorowicz...Les was either too transparent, too unclear, or too much the archetypal villain for me to want to watch his self-serving plot unfold."
