Absorbing, Intelligent, Entertaining

See it if An enjoyable rendition of a military courtroom drama. Well written and enthusiastically performed.

Don't see it if Acting was of mixed quality, some roles better than others. I liked the story and characters but wasn't especially moved.

Entertaining, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Good acting & staging

See it if Aaron Sorkin's gripping courtroom drama still holds up proving authoritarianism never goes out of style. Energetic acting and staging

Don't see it if Some of the plot gets lost at times due to rushed dialogue but leading men are dynamic & suprising use of Gallery playing space compensate

Great acting, Great staging, Riveting

See it if you want to see an exciting, compelling piece of theatre performed by an outstanding off-off Broadway theater company. As good as Bwy.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy courtroom military court marshal/murder dramas or you must compare it to the movie version.

Entertaining, Absorbing, Great staging, Masterful, Intelligent

See it if you want a solid, well-written, vividly acted, imaginatively staged, entertaining courtroom drama.

Don't see it if you're expecting an innovative military, courtroom drama or have no patience for a lot of poetic writing (remember when that was the norm?)

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if you like Aaron Sorkin, the movie A Few Good Men, plays dealing with the military or lawyers, & if you live in Brooklyn.

Don't see it if you don't like Aaron Sorkin, the movie, military or legal dramas, or intimate venues. It's pretty long & not light or fluffy

A
December 8th, 2016

“The story relayed in this play is loosely based on real-life events that took place at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in July 1986. This is an outstanding production with extremely talented actors in all of the roles. There isn't a weak link in the chain of command. This play brings back to life all the excitement and intensity present in the original Broadway production and the movie. If you don't go, Col. Jessep may ‘rip the eyes out of your head and piss into your dead skull.’"
