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

See it if You want to see a good play done very well with no frills. In the basement of an apartment building you've got to be good, and they were!

Don't see it if You have to have a big production. They do a lot with a little, the set was impressive, but you're in a basement and you know it.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Insipid, Overrated, Slow

See it if You really enjoy Russian introspective theater set in a quirky space with a mixed bag of talent. Funny at times, but not funny enough

Don't see it if Excruciating lulls in interest aren't your thing or a slow burn story where the funny moments are few and often cringe-worthy

Great acting, Truly abysmal sightlines, Extraordinarily good considering the venue

See it if you live uptown, you like Russian literature and you want hard evidence of how much talent abounds in every nook and cranny of this city.

Don't see it if you'll be annoyed by not being able to see much of anything even though it's a tiny venue and you're in the 4th row. One word: risers. Read more

Absorbing, Delightful, Great acting, Funny, Great staging

See it if You want to see a entertaining play in a small venue. You want to see some beautiful costumes. You are or are not interested in classics.

Don't see it if You don't like small venues with very nice staging. You are not interested in classics. You don't want to see a play about unrequited love. Read more

I must have seen a different play, Uneven acting, Slow, Well intentioned

See it if You love community theater done in awkward spaces, though a few of the actors were better than the production

Don't see it if You have high standards and like to actually see the performance

Uninspired, Overstuffed

See it if You don't care that you won't care about any of the characters.

Don't see it if With a couple of exceptions, performances pretty weak.I always find it weird when only some actors do accents

Entertaining, Uneven, Lacking diversity, Enjoyable

See it if You are interested in a high-level community-theateresque performance of a fun and interesting show. Some of the acting is quite good.

Don't see it if You expect an out-of-the-box interpretation or a diverse cast based on the location of the theatre. The show was competent but predictable.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You enjoy comedies of manners. Glimpses into mores of other times and places. Russian classics.

Don't see it if You will be annoyed by poor sightlines or uncomfortable chairs.
